“It’s easy to become separated from our creative spark,” says instructor Lisa Gluskin Stonestreet. “Sometimes we don’t know how to return from that stuck place. This remote course explores experiences of being lost—and ways of getting found.”

We’ll start with nine strategies drawn from Adrienne Rich’s essay “To invent what we desire” (in What Is Found There: Notebooks on Poetry and Politics), exploring how each of us might be silenced, or moved to speak. We’ll use guided meditation, visualization, and writing exercises to encounter and soften our resistance, reconnecting with the artist within us. Before the end of class, we’ll discuss what we’ve brought to the surface, emerging with concrete plans for diving back into the heart of our work.

  • The teaching style was wonderful. Lisa is patient and takes the time necessary to understand what everybody needs. She checks in often, and addresses questions or takes comments further. She's a brilliant facilitator.
