What's a Workshop Like?

We're going to do some therapeutic writing!

3 hours of meditating, receiving prompts, writing in real time,
in a heart based, non egoic “poetic” fashion (aka freewheeling – no rules) ...

... then we all read our own work and “let go” and get thanks from facilitators and the group – indescribably freeing!

After the structured time we can process what has happened ...

... go from dark to light – from sad to happy – from confused to clear – one stanza at a time™.


POP-UP ShiftPoetry™ Workshops

Join Howard Kern and Barbara Ligeti for an evening of


*creative “sprint writing” in 10 minute intervals
in response to ShiftPoetry™ prompts

*sharing your work by reading out loud to honor and “let go”

*personal revelation and release, and fun!


Sunday, October 20th
6PM – 8:30PM

Write poetry (writing without rules) to shift (go to a better place).
Enjoy the experience and take your ShiftPoetry™ wherever it leads you!
