A doorway back into your body, voice, and soul

Poetry for Healing is for the woman who…

Craves a deeper connection with her feminine energy, intuition, and grace, with a proven process for making that connection

Wants to heal from trauma, invisible scripts, and stagnant energy, without the structured, traditional approach to healing offered by conventional therapy or coaching

Aches to be seen, heard and celebrated by a loving community of sisters

A Creative Awakening

Inside the Program

Poetry for Healing is not just a program for writers or poets, but for all women.

✧ Writing Your Poetry

You will learn a process for writing that is not guided by rules or conventions, but by spirit. Therapeutic poetry is energizing. Cathartic. Inspiring. It create a bridge between your head and your heart, and allows you to access your emotions and channel them into art.

✧ Your Relationship with Self

Poetry is a place that wants more of you. More expression. More love. More anger. More truth. This is the place where every single part of you is seen as sacred. Because it is. Finally, you will learn how it feels to stand tall in the wake of your imperfections and shine your light just as you are.

✧ A Creative Awakening

You may yearn to feel your spiritual connection, but struggle to find practices that can help you truly access your inner wisdom. Here, you will learn transformative spiritual lessons and feminine empowerment taught within a container of creative awakening that will help you in daily life.

✧ Support through Self and Sisterhood

All women need community to heal. They  need to be seen, witnessed, and heard.  No one heals through isolation, they heal through a safe and powerful connection.  Together, with your sisters, you will write, speak, and heal out loud.

Using Your Emotions as Your Guide

Learn how Poetry for Healing is different from therapy or traditional healing approaches. Here, we substitute creativity for convention.

Therapy and coaching teach you how to regulate your emotions and calibrate your feelings. But for some people, conventional modalities are not enough. They need direct access to their heart so they can move past their limited stories and find their power.

By harnessing creativity and expression, you will begin to stand in your truth, find your medicine, and process your emotions as you  channel them through your art.

You will work within yourself, with your shadow and your light. Though you will be guided through the journey, you will be in full creative control of your art and writing, and will express it as you see fit. With practice, you will learn how to use creative expression as a pathway to your soul’s power and healing wisdom.

Conventional Healing
(Therapy, Meditation, or Coaching)

  • Learning to regulate your emotions through breathwork, meditation, mindfulness, or journaling
  • Needing to overcome your emotions to be perceived as stable or strong
  • Relying on someone else to analyze you or guide you through exercises or sessions

Healing through Creative Expression (Poetry)

  • Channeling your emotions into art that helps you free yourself from old stories
  • Healing your relationship with yourself through spiritual principles and feminine wisdom
  • Becoming your own healer
Poetry can be our very own highest self calling us forward. It can be the place our voice finally gets to unleash itself and stand up and shine light on what isn’t okay. It can be the place we expose our tenderness. The place we celebrate the power we hold. It’s all things in whatever way we need, and that is why it’s medicine.

Everything else falls away. All that is left is you, your deep inner-connection and the rhythm. The cadence. The words. The story you must tell. And when you emerge from this meditation of sorts, all that is left is the art and an open heart.

Questions about Poetry for Healing

** Click to view answers.

I’ve never written any poetry before. Is this program right for me?

Poetry for Healing is not just a program for writers or poets, but for all women. The objective of this program isn’t to help you write a book of poetry. You will learn to write for you, not for anyone else, though you can share what you write with anyone you like. The point of the program is to learn the process of creative expression and accessing your inner freedom. If you want to learn how to access your truth and stand behind it, then this program is for you.

When can I expect results from this healing modality?

This program is designed with great depth and healing potential. If you attend each class and do the inner work, you will start to notice a shift after week one. Ultimately, what this program is doing is helping you get back in touch with the truth of your heart, the clarity of your voice, and the immense power of your own soul to help you transform from the inside out. After six weeks, you will walk away with an understanding of how to write and speak your way into greater liberation and feelings of self-worth. The more you practice this process, the more results you will see.

When are the program dates and when are the live sessions?

The next Poetry for Healing offering is in late summer, 2022. The program will happen within an intimate container with a capped number of participants to ensure optimal guidance and support. The live sessions are hosted every Tuesday from 5:00 – 6:30 PST.

How much time should I plan to spend on the program?

You get what you put into the program, but women from all walks of life will be able to participate if they create the time to — whether they work a demanding job, have small children, or act in another caregiving capacity.

This journey includes six (90-minute) weekly sessions via zoom with myself and a small, intimate group of women. Outside of our live sessions, you will also receive a brief weekly email the morning of the class to help you become familiar with that evening’s topic. You will also be invited to be part of a private Facebook group where you can put up your work (written or recited) and where I will post to provide you with further information on the topics.

If you seek further support outside of our program or after the six weeks, you can inquire with me about private mentorship. There, I can offer you more personalized support and help you dive deeper into the weekly topics and themes from the program.

I have other commitments during the program. Will I miss anything?

I strongly encourage you to join us live each week. But if you truly can’t make it, a replay of the class will be shared with you within 48 hours of the session.

Do I need any special materials, equipment, or softwares?

Nope! All you need is a strong internet connection, a quiet space to join the live calls, a pen and paper, a curious mind, and a heart with the capacity to open wide.

What is the cost of the program, and is there a payment plan or scholarship?

The tuition is a one-time fee of USD $600, or two installments of USD $350.
Scholarships are available to those who need them. Please inquire with me directly if this applies to you.

What is the refund policy?

I truly believe in the healing powers of all my programs. But if Poetry for Healing doesn’t work for you for any reason, let me know before the second week of the program begins and I’ll refund 100% of your money.

Lesley’s words and performance brings a sense of connection and invites us all to find deep healing, reaching toward our better selves.
