Shamanic Poetic Creation by Redwood Reider
We will take a shamanic journey to the realms of Spirit to bring back inspiration for the seeds of poems. We will learn and practice spontaneous writing techniques to tap the river of creativity that flows through us all and channel it into words. Bring pen and notebook if you have them.
Redwood Reider is a spoken word poet known for energizing and inspiring audiences. Her powerful live performances range from the intimate to the political (and often both at the same time). Channelling the flow of the moment, freestyle improvisations are also a big part of a redwood poetree session.
She has produced two CDs: the soulful live album A Process of Love & Rhyme (2009); and Poetree (2011). A native of the redwood lands of California, she now makes her home in Golden Bay, Aotearoa New Zealand.
