The Nest

Writing supports us in receiving guidance, deepening intuitive wisdom, and asking questions we may not have considered before. From a lens of emotional inclusivity, compassion and deep listening, we gather together in The Nest. We use creative writing prompts & discussion to consider our self-defined meanings of peace & wholeness.

I offer one-on-one beginning, intermediate, and advanced poetry therapy/wellness guidance and support that are highly personalized to fit your specific needs. You'll receive a free 30 min Discovery Call where I'll hear your needs and interests and then a free 30 min Proposal Call where I share the unique and personalized offering I've prepared. We start our journey from there on. For more information on individual offerings, visit the Plans and Pricing page. 

Group offerings will be listed below as well as the Home page.

Discover your story

Hiraethlon offerings such as The Nest are designed to support you in navigating your emotions & thoughts using creativity & self-exploration. 

Your poems are so beautifully powerful that I feel the influence of the collective in them. I know this is very personal to you but as I read [Motherlung], I hear the underground river bubbling up. Perhaps an artist is the soft ground that yields to the water beneath bringing the voice of the collective to the surface. This voice yearns to be heard, expressed, here among the living. Perhaps the muse is the personification of the collective consciousness of all human experience. This comforts me to know that we are never alone, never isolated in our pain."

- Rita O, writer and student of "The Memory at Work: Writing Your Legacy," an online class offered by Lisa Marie via AllWriters' Workplace & Workshop
