Many vital life experiences are difficult to integrate and share in normal conversation. Here, my experiments with poetry and collage invite seekers to explore various art forms for enhanced self-knowledge and expression.
In a writing workshop during a major life transition, I was introduced to a process of creating poems from free-writes, and I realized that the journaling I had been doing my whole life was actually poetry. Today, I regularly create poetry inspired by journal entries, prose written by others, and to express the raw feeling behind an experience. Visit Sighing Like Sediment to experience my poetry.
I first discovered the power of collage in a writing workshop where we were asked to create a small piece as a writing prompt. I felt compelled by the way the collection of images and words complemented each other and deepened their shared meaning. I explored collage further through Soul Collage and have now integrated this art form into my life as another tool for accessing and exploring my feelings, experiences, and intuition.
