About this Service


13 meetings, across one solar year, on every 4th Thursday, 7-8:40pm/EST

The SOLAR YEAR ORBIT starts with peak fire energy on the upcoming summer solstice. We’ll meet every four weeks from June 20, 2024 through May 22, 2025 to support the collective progress (and, if desired, completion) of longer-term individual projects. Write your book, play, or album. All media & genres welcome, but be warned, this facilitator is a poet. We will focus on generative rituals and habits, broad consideration of craft & structure, and, most importantly, supportive community and gentle accountability. This space is designed to nurture your projects, collectively and individually. It’s not a workshop. It’s a generative communal force.

All sessions meet on Zoom.
