Journey to Ancestral Waters:
A Shamanic Poetry Writing Workshop
Saturday, November 19th - 4pm-6pm
The ocean is ours to know, yet each of us is unknown.
All of us hold inner poets, whether we are consciously connected, or not. Poetry is a vehicle to help us feel, story tell, and realize the miracles of our lives. All of us descend from times, places, and realms beyond this one living reality. In this workshop, we merge drum journeying, ancestral connection, and poetry into one in order to better understand who we are, and from where we come.
As humans, many of our organs, including our hearts, are comprised of over 75% water. At the same time, we hold complex histories in our cellular memory to water itself. It is time to heal our connections to the waters. In this workshop, you will be guided through a shamanic drum journey to meet and connect with an ancestor or Spirit of the water. After the drum journey, you will be guided to tap into your own inner writer to remember and commemorate this sacred experience and memory. You will be guided and held throughout.
This workshop is for the secretly spiritual writers; those wanting to connect more with their inner creative voices; those looking to greater connect with and heal a past experience with water in order to be more connected with the element in this lifetime; those looking for introductory connection to past lives or portals beyond; those looking to connect poetry and shamanic healing; those who love or fear the ocean. This is also a beginner-friendly experience to grow together in community. You are welcome.

huiying has such a gentle perceptiveness that really encouraged me to lean into truth. My spirit felt deeply sheltered and honored in its needs. It can be so easy living in the world to be distracted and lose sight of the compass of our hearts, working with huiying restored my sight of myself and was so sharply clarifying. Furthermore, huiying's channeling and transference of energy feels distinctly linked to his work as a writer. It's a poetic making of something saturated in the dynamism of his presence and dedicated assurance.

huiying kept me focused and grounded in the present moment. I needed that intentionality in my healing. He heard what I needed and created the space for that. It felt like a tremendous weight was lifted when we concluded. Many happy tears were shed. I would recommend huiying to anyone looking for a safe container for their healing work.

huiying was a gracious and skilled facilitator who established an atmosphere of simultaneous vulnerability and security. I felt safe & held enough to write from a profoundly honest place, and I produced work that I've been needing to get out for years. I'm so grateful to have experienced it.
