Meet Your Emotions,
Exorcise Your Pain,
Share Your Voice,
& Make Yourself As Your Art
The Ugly Words Series invites each of us to approach endings (and returns) with willingness and openness to what the shadowy parts of the literal and symbolic autumn and winter seasons may present us with. Relating with the animated word, these allies take us places that are unfamiliar or do not yet exist, and can also return us to sites that need reconciling or tending. Words spoken aloud or silently written allows us to surrender, decompose, and re-create our identity that ultimately fertilizes our heart-minds, our art, our finances, our career, our intimate relationships, and the greater world.
Words are living beings. They live in us, with us, and through us. The Ugly Words Series welcomes us to make kin and ritualize the necessary themes of ugliness, decomposition, rot, grief, and endings, and their intersections with written and shared word, animacy, and the supernatural with clarity, tenderness, and tenacity. Through embodied writing practices that both exorcise what is no longer desired and bring deep healing, we remember our humanness, renew the capacity to freely relate with the Seen and Unseen, make art of who we are, and divine where we are headed.
The Ugly Words Series dispels the perfectionism or other unattainable aspects of wellness and spirituality, and instead, grants focus for context and process, supportive writing techniques, powerful esoteric tools, and active collaboration with our intuition and Mystery that is deeply rooted in the realities of daily and big life stresses, pain, and loss, and as a way-through to joy and living creatively.
