Poetry Therapy - Join My Haiku Club
Poetry therapy is a pathway for personal development by expressing your feelings and thoughts through this wonderful art form. Where artists paints a picture, so a poet conjures images and thoughts in the mind.
Clients have found coaching sessions involving poetry very therapeutic and may be just the medium for you to organise your thinking and ideas. I work with the Haiku, a Japanese form of poetry which is very short just 17 syllables or sounds and focuses on the mindfulness of a moment in time. It can help you to express your mood or emotions and write them down, a thinking dairy but within a beautiful art form. They usually connect a thought within the observation of natural surroundings.
Matsuo Basho is the ancient master of HAIKU
