“My role in society, or any artist’s or poet’s role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.”
Do you love music and words? Do you come alive when lyrics speak to your core, and bring tears or a simply a certain resonance and connection with the singer and storyteller?
In this May’s writing alchemy class we will be looking at some of the greatest songwriters of our time and falling deep into the world of lyrics!
If you are a song addicted person, a musician, or simply a lyric guy or girl, then this fun, sweet class is for you!
“Your graciousness is what carries you. It isn’t how old you are, how young you are, how beautiful you are, or how short your skirt is. What is is, is what comes out of your heart.”
This will be a call for crafting writing from the heart without worrying, wondering or stressing. This is about storytelling for music and simplifying. I want you to be your brightest, most astonishing self, by tapping into that deep place that holds your VOICE and all FEELING.
“People want to hear songs with the words they’re afraid to say.”
I believe nothing in life feels better than the flow state and I will take you there.
Three hours with me will give you many chances to reconnect with your authentically divine creative force. Writing from this deeper place is the kind of writing that makes everything from poetry to memoir to even status updates jump off the page with felt beauty. We’re going to be going over the usual principles of writing from the body, only with a more concentrated focus on the craft of writing lyrics for songs or simple poems, deriving story from everything, how to nourish your core self, how to cultivate and relax into your creativity, and how to connect to life, and therefore your readers by bringing sensation and strong energy through your sentences.
I will be using examples from great songwriters from both the past and present to illustrate the poetry inside of amazing lyrics.
I’ll also guide you into the type of creative writing that leaves no room for blocks, overthinking, or second guessing through lecture, open conversation, subtle energy work, confidence building, inspired dialogue and specialty prompts specifically designed to invoke vivid imagination, daydream, and most importantly, memory. I promise when you can write from this space you can write anything, anywhere, at any time.
Release everything you’ve ever learned about writing. This is the way to do it fast, efficiently, simply, and WELL.
I teach in small, live intimate groups over Zoom, which is the closest thing to it being in person.
Non writers are always welcome as I promise I will help you become a great writer far faster than you can imagine.
What you get:
- A 3-hour live Zoom workshop with a small group of amazing people.
- A space that is sacred and non-judgmental to share, laugh, cry, write, and be completely authentically YOU!
- LOTS of writing practice, writing in a way you may never have experienced before.
- Hours of information about words, creativity, and how to use your body, movement, and intuition to develop natural flow.
- A private Facebook immensely supportive group/writing community to further inspire and encourage your writing practice, AND connect with a supportive new tribe. (Completely run and managed by me and growing more magical over time!)
- A brand new, fresh look on creativity, which I believe is the doorway to everything.
“To create something from nothing is one of the greatest feelings, and I would
- I don’t know, I wish it upon everybody. It is heaven.”
