by Rev. Dr. Nicole Sebastian

Routine, habit, chores, stress, anxiety and fear----Life can be a daily challenge! For me, a daily gently reminder is crucial to keeping my balance and helping me see the beauty and love in life. Every evening before bed, I quietly journal my “Good Stuff List.” I reflect back over the day and select the people, animals, things and events that brought love and joy into the day...

 

Editor's Note from Barbara Lazarony: Rev Dr. Nicole, Sebastian recommends "Just Saying HU;” a suggestion is a bridge to remembering your dreams and deciphering the messages contained within them.  Give it a try!

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Christine Logel

Editor's Note from Sue Meyn: We are always looking for ways to lose weight. And most reading this page like to write---so it's an interesting piece. You may even feel called to read the whole study!

 

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Sheila Bender

I started my writing career as a poet and I believe that poetry is my “home page,” the place I return to for investigating my feelings and perceptions and to recognize those of others that are so like my own. As poets, we write from joy, sorrow and wonder; our poems record our responses to being alive and they create a sense living intensely, rather than walking shut down through our days...

 

Editor's Note from Susan de Wardt: Prolific author, poet and essayist Sheila Bender speaks openly about how she used poetry to help her through the grief following her son's tragic death.

 

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Susan de Wardt,
ATH Co-Editor of Writing and Poetry Therapy

We each carry lines of poetry with us. Words that others have written float back to us and stay with us, indelibly. We clutch these "Life Lines" like totems, repeat them as mantras, and summon them for comfort and laughter...

 

Editor's Note from Susan de Wardt: Have you been inspired by a poem? Do you have words of poetic wisdom floating in your head? Read about the Academy of American Poets project:  Life/Lines: Vital Words.

 

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Donna Davidge

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Katie McClain

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Barbara Lazarony,

Every creative writer is occasionally faced with falling face first into the proverbial hole or banging their head against writer's block. Then it's a slippery slope down the well-worn path of beating ourselves up for being in this place yet again. The truth is, there is another method...

 

Editor's Note: Every creative writer is occasionally faced with writer's block; rather than getting stuck again, consider meditation to jump-start your creativity.

 

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Maryhelen Snyder

There are only the two of us. The poet and the page. The therapist and the client. These are the central creative activities of my life. And each is an intimate experience that I and others have compared to that of being a midwife. Because the fact is that the primary satisfaction lies in waiting. And then, as a poem or a person emerges, in being receptive, and sometimes astounded...


Editor's Note from Barbara Lazarony: Maryhelen Snyder takes us on a journey as a poet and a therapist to explore topics of: new beginnings, becoming the other, not knowing, metaphor, creative energy, and most of all--love.

 

 

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Tzivia Gover

"What is Poetry?" I pose the question to my students, young women in their teens and early twenties. I am answered with silence. Seconds slink past. Finally, one student, who is meticulously made up from her mascara-ed eyes to her silver and blue polished nails offers, "I think it has to rhyme..."


Editor's Note from Barbara Lazarony: Tzivia Gover shares her first hand experience in leading writing workshops that are indeed not a luxury, neither for her students nor for herself.
