Letters To A Known Future: Writing From The World We Leave

This is a six week workshop for writers and storytellers. You may join us in NEW ORLEANS at The Dragonfly Poetry & Ritual Space or REMOTELY from all around the globe:

Letters To A Known Future:
Writing From The World We Leave

As history lays dying, what the future will hold rests squarely in our palms. We need stories that explore possibilities, both personal and collective, we need stories that speak healing into the old world, and constructive memory into the future.

We need the stories. All of them. Now.

This workshop is ideal for experimental fiction, blasphemous theory creation, collage writing, lyric making, broken poetry, and oral storytelling.

Bring your stray words and story pieces, bring your barely surfacing dreams and nightmares, bring your wants and your fears, but most importantly: bring a pen.

This is a writing intensive workshop. If you are looking to generate raw material or unearth new inspirations, this is the perfect workshop for you.

There will be an opportunity to read or perform work, but will not be expected.

(An essay from each: Adrienne Maree Brown, Donna Haraway, Douglas Rushkoff)

Cost: $187

Shadow Work: Dark Symbols In Tarot

Potions Lounge, Bourbon Street, New Orleans

Join us for an intimate discussion of human flaws, human wounds, and the effective use of Tarot to understand both within ourselves. We will begin by ‘making a container’ and creating a comfortable space to talk over the lesser qualities and/or life events that are part of the human experience. Bring a notebook and a strategy you find useful for dealing with a difficult person, especially if that person is you. Life isn’t perfect but it is beautiful, so let's talk it through. You don't need a Tarot deck for this workshop but bring a deck if you have one! See you there!

The Right Question: Using Spreads & Layering Cards

Potions Lounge, Bourbon Street, New Orleans

Good Tarot readings are about how the cards dialog with one another. The 78 cards of the Tarot are like 78 people you know and, like people, each character behaves a bit differently with every other character. We will engage multiple decks and combine spreads to demonstrate layering and the conversational nature of a Tarot reading. Bring your deck and you may want your camera to photograph the spreads.

Performance For Writers

The Dra

PERFORMANCE FOR WRITERS

Reading your work is a performance and performance is a skill and skills are made of techniques. We will discuss strategies for handling nervousness and overcoming problems that happen once on stage. You will learn ways to ‘own the mic’, ‘take up the stage’, and ‘use the space’ in a room to create the highest advantage for yourself in capturing and endearing audiences of all sizes. Bring three excerpts of writing that are three minutes in length each. If possible, bring a range of emotion or purpose in your excerpts, but don’t overthink it. Bring a pen and a notebook and your willingness to share your courage with the rest of us.

Sessions That Shift: Taking Clients, Doing Work

Potions Lounge, Bourbon Street, New Orleans

We may know our cards and charts and oils and chants, but do we know how to create space for ourselves and others to grow? We will talk about shifting energies and perspectives within those we work with and within ourselves, acting as witness, solidarity healing, and power of 'being'. We will also cover basic tools for de-escalating emotionally 'triggered' clients, checking our own motivations, and making a committment to gaining continuous consent from our friends and clients.

This workshop is for anyone living among people, but bring your cards if you got 'em.
