Healthy Haiku symbolizes the organic flow between health and wellness, poetry and other creative arts. I started this work with children in 2006 and over time realized that adults can benefit from the same information and process – especially parents, teachers and mentors. Three publications and 11 years later, I find myself loving the work with the inmates – many of whom are parents and others that want to become parents and mentors. The time spent with them has me at my creative best, helping them to see the infinite possibilities for their lives created anew! The Healthy Haiku process guides participants through lessons about nutrition, self-esteem, forgiveness, Ho'oponopono, creations of vision boards and so much more.
A typical lesson (not that any of them are typical per se!) starts with meditation, power cards, followed by the main lesson which always involves some type of creativity exercise, and we close with comments/feedback and Namaste (the Divine in Me – Greets the Divine in You!).
I am here to challenge you to “Step into their Power” to stop being mediocre (which it way overrated anyway) and to be about the business of being on their Divine soul journey. Enough with the distractions and playing small. Marianne Williamson reminded us in her famous poem Our Deepest Fear – that ” Your playing small doesn’t serve the world!” Sometimes folks get mad at me and it is during those times that I know that I am pushing some buttons and taking them to the edge – heading to a breakthrough. It is uncomfortable there – and there is nowhere to hide and nowhere to go but up!
