Mentorship Sessions

 

I offer individualized mentorship sessions for those seeking guidance on their writing, art, or teaching journey. Sessions range from 30 minutes to 4 hours and are held over the phone or Zoom.

Drawing on my training as a poet, professor, ceremonialist, and clinical herbalist, I hold a sacred and strong container for our sessions. My intention is to be acutely present for you and your work, to offer holistic, activating, and sustaining reflections, and to help you attune your attention to what is waiting to be realized.

 

Mentorship sessions can provide a container for:

  • close attention to a manuscript, poem, or project

  • reviewing and honing your intentions

  • cultivating new rituals 

  • talking through rough ideas for an existing or new project

  • developing custom writing exercises

  • holding space for you as you write

  • tailoring companion readings for your practice
  • preparing and submitting work for publication

  • exploring ways to nourish your intuition

  • discussing daily rituals for embodiment + spiritual development

  • working to deepen your path and practice as a teacher

  • course development 

  • finding and maintaining balance as a caretaker or teacher

  • exploring methods for holding space and deep listening

  • marking threshold crossings—finishing a manuscript, teaching a new class, beginning a new project or job, sending your work out for publication, changing fields, etc.—with intention.

Stay woven into your practice with these short but immersive sessions. Time might be used for close reading, editorial advice, reflection with an attentive listener, or creative brainstorming. Whatever feels most urgent and will keep your finger on the pulse of the work.

1.5 hours

Think through places in your work that resist development, discuss patterns that no longer serve you and cultivate new rituals for a nourishing practice, develop continuity, have space held for you at an uncertain threshold, devote time to quiet writing and then reflect and breathe into the work you’ve done.

Intensives
2-4 hours

Intensives offer close individual attention to your work with time and space for sustained writing within the held container of the session. Think of them as guided retreats. Our time might begin with a discussion of a particular piece, or of an aspect of your process, followed by a session of writing, followed by time for discussion and close reading, closing with setting intentions and goals for the developing work. This format allows for a rich exchange and sacred time to incubate and develop a manuscript.

2 hours: $225
3 hours: $325
4 hours: $425
