The Hearth of the Matter

I recently metMiranda Aisling Hynesat a event calledMakers Mondayat theArtist's AsyluminSomerville, MA. The event itself is sponsored byMiranda's Hearth, an Organization founded by Miranda with the mission of bringing people together around doing creative work and building relationships.

Other monthly events include a potluck dinner, a waltz night (often with live music), book club gatherings, a creative writing night, and more..

On Being Sex Positive - Interview with Nicole Mazzeo

EThe first incarnation of this blog and podcast, Poiesis Studio, was actually a practice group for actors and filmmakers. We used to meet at the Democracy Center in Harvard Square, Cambridge. It was there that I first met,Nicole Mazzeo. Her educational organizationPleasure Piewas sponsoring an ongoing discussion group calledSex Positive Boston.Curious to see what they were about, I eventually ventured into one of the meetings. A bit nervous, I was pleasantly surprised to find myself welcomed into a meeting space of verydiverse folks talking with one another openly and honestly about their sexuality. I was struck how genuine and sincere people were, and how much they seemed to get out of having this space to share their thoughts and feelings on sex and relationships. As someone who leads therapy groups, I felt keenly aware of the presence and skill with which the facilitator, Nicole led this group. Nicole thinks outside of the box, and brings a boon of wisdom in this episode. Enjoy! L...

Stephen K. Levine

I first encountered Stephen Levine through his writing. In particular his book,Poiesis: The Language of Psychology and The Speech of the Soul, which I began reading in the summer of 2004, before I started the Expressive Therapies graduate program atLesley University. If you have noticed the name of my blog and my podcast, you can see that this book, along with Steve's chapters in the bookPrinciples and Practices of Expressive Therapies, made just a wee bit of an impression on me. While I was at Lesley, Steve was not faculty there, and I only encountered him once in a brief workshop on creative process. I remember thinking that the way he talked reminded me of Christopher Walken. I now knowSteve is a Brooklyn boy. Maybe there’s a connection? A quick google search reveals thatChristopher Walken grew up worlds apart, in Queens. In any case, Steve’s accomplishments are too numerous to cover here. Briefly though, he is thePaul Celan Chair of Philosopy and Poetics in the Arts, Health, a...
