Jacinta will be teaching the upcoming online class, Becoming Undone: Unpacking Life’s Weight with Writing and Poetry starting April 4th, 2018.
Jacinta V. White is a published poet and a 2017 recipient of the Duke Energy Regional Artist grant. She has been facilitating group and individual poetry writing sessions — using poetry as healing — for more than 15 years, through her company, The Word Project. Just three years ago, Jacinta launched Snapdragon: A Journal of Art & Healing — an international online journal publishing poetry, creative nonfiction and photography. Knowing from personal experience the healing balm poetry provides, Jacinta is committed to assisting others and expanding the conversation on art and healing.
About Jacinta’s Upcoming Class:
“This class has been designed for and offered to those who feel overwhelmed by life’s challenges or those who feel too stuck to make a plan for something more.
Each week, participants will be given a poem and prompts that will gently guide them in journaling and poetry writing exercises (and optional “supporting exercises” for those who want to go deeper into the work).
By using creativity of writing, participants will begin to identify what weight needs to be unpacked and how, and begin to re-pack what is most important and meaningful to them.
This series is designed for those who are wanting to work through what “weight” might be holding them from living a fuller life. Those who feel stressed out and in need of clarity. Those who are burden and are looking for a place (internally) to process life (external) demands and to “find” themselves. And, ideally, those who are willing to go a beyond the surface and dig deeper into the balance and changes their life needs in order to live a life they were created to live.”
