I’m a poet, writer, teacher and editor who works with groups and one-to-one. I offer retreats, workshops, and classes that integrate artistic practices with meditative awareness. My programs are designed to open the flow of our natural creativity so that we find its form and expression. The programs are suitable for practicing artists in any field and for people who wish to explore new areas of creative expression.

The present experiences of our own bodies and minds lead us to the wellsprings of our creative lives. As our inner voices and visions become more accessible, we find more ease with discovering and choosing forms and styles. 

The first word, “Ah,”

blossomed into all others.

Each of them is true.

          Kukai, 9th century Japanese poet

The painter passes through states of fullness and emptying.  That is the whole secret of art.
