For artists, writers, and creators of all kinds
I work one on one artists, writers, and creators of all kinds. For those who are grappling with myth and meaning, rough housing with words and seeking to unearth the sound of their own voice. For those who want sanctuary, a safe space, to wander deep into the why of their creating, to ask questions of where the words and vision and uprising wants to take you.
Those who feel the doubt and the desire, how sometimes it is a tangled thing to know what we will create and release into the world, because life herself is messy and so are we. What will I do with the shadows of my own stories, and the glory, with the part of me that wants to write the body true, in all its profane pleasure and knotted knowing?
Where does my resistance live, and how does it inform my art?
Together, we enter into Sanctuary, an hour at a time. We explore. We excavate. We ask questions. We listen. We walk through your words one by one. Or we enter into the unknowns and see what sits there in the silent spaces, asking us to not look away.
You are writing the language of the human animal into being, putting so much that goes unspoken and unarticulated into words and stories that foster deep healing, self-love, and permission to grow and do and be radically authentic. One day, I hope your language and your ways are commonplace, squelching the hell and violence, and creating vast possibilities for expansion, expression, and love.
