Spoken Word Workshop/Camp Counselor!

What a beautiful week i just experienced! I had the privilege to be a camp counselor this week in Big Bear for a group of 30+ High Schoolers, mostly from Crenshaw High and other parts of LA. I did a poetry workshop with them throughout the week and was able to work with some young and talented artists. They inspired me so much and gave me such a beautiful gift! We are all learning to be brave and to see the bravery through the eyes of the youth of this next generation is a beautiful gift I will not forget. If this is the generation that we are raising, we have a bright future ahead of us. I hope to be able to do more workshops in the future and be a part of the expression that gives life and healing to the work of the next generation. They will be a force to be reckoned with and I am excited at the prospect of our future. We must all do our part to continue the legacy of hope and change and casting a vision of a new world in which we all have the power to create and imagine. What a beautiful week in the woods, with such beautiful and wonderful young human beings! I hope that this work can continue on and that the relationships we build can help teach us to be more gentle with the world and with each other.

Much love and blessings to you all! See you soon!

Oh yeah and you can still buy my book at the link a few post down! Thanks for the support!
