I don’t think of what I do as “teaching” so much as I do “facilitating”. One of the therapeutic modalities I work with is Hakomi, which it’s originator Ron Kurtz terms “assisted self-therapy”. That’s how I think of the writing groups I lead and the courses that I teach. Most of the writers I work with are more than able to do the writing they want to do, tell the stories they have to tell. They just need a little guidance, permission and the space and time to write. Those are the things I provide through Workshops, Sanctuaries, Full Length Retreats and Courses.
