"Poetry is a mirror which makes beautiful that which is distorted."
~Percy Shelley, A Defence of Poetry, 1821

No Title...a response to 10 words.


I knew you before we met
a man in search of how
to make it real and
just enough desperate
to allow himself to feel
the powerful calling of
what it means
to be a lover and a
scientist alone in a
world of powerful
abundance while
willing himself to
stay connected
to the tender friend
he called
the poet

~ Carolyn A. Dragon 2012

The Poet's Way

I've found a home. It's called The Poet's Way. You can join us as we are scheduling retreats for the rest of 2012 in Chicago, Boston, Toronto, Asheville, and Minneapolis.

The Poet's Way is life changing. We believe that there is a better way to live. We believe that life is meant to be lived at a deeper level of meaning. At a deeper level of resonance. We believe that people come alive when they live authentically, creatively, and expressively. We use poetry spoken out loud as a way to tap into that deeper meaning--to unleash our true selves onto the world. We want to live lives of purpose and bring you along on the journey. You don't have to call yourself a poet to come along--although we believe EVERYONE is a poet.

I don't know Einat. Never had a conversation with her. Wouldn't be able to tell you a thing about her. But I saw her. I felt her. I wrote a poem about her. 

You see, we're trying something new over at The Poet's Way. We thought it would be a powerful way for the community to interact if we asked whoever wanted to—to put up 10 words that describe themselves. No other instructions. Just 10 words. 

Einat jumped in. She put up her ten words:  Standing still cause if I move I'd feel. (Actually 8 words) So,  I saw what I saw in those words. I wrote a poem.

What is it that your really want for your own life?

You make it happen.
You're successful.
You have a pretty good life.
You should be thankful.
You want something more though.
You want to move from success to significance.

We've all been there. I've been there. We chase the dreams of our 20s only to find in our 40s that what really mattered to us was something different. There is no judgement here. It's part of the journey we all need to take. Now is the time though. Time to live from here on out a life that excites us. A life of friendship. A life of adventure. 

Authentic Development coaching is all about living a life of meaning--no matter what stage of life we are in.

Coaching changes us because a coach and a client create together a path that resonates so deeply with us that we can't help but live it with passion. Schedule a sample session today. Even this simple step of trying something new will bring change in your life.  Learn more...
