Poetry and movement integrated
You may be wondering what a Poetry page is doing on The Breathing Lab site. I am taking what I have learned by my own experience as a poet and passing it on.
When I talk to other poets, they say they have the dreaded “writers block,” and I hear poets often complain about how nervous they are before giving readings. I know some who refuse to read publicly or they let that sensation turn their reading into agony for themselves and their audience.
Check out my classes and workshops. I can guide you into a new plan where you can be in charge of yourself so that you will have a repeatable strategy to alleviate these painful situations, a strategy you can apply fruitfully to the act of writing itself.
