I just had a poem accepted for publication that flowed out of me in a sudden emotional epiphany during Judyth’s workshop. She pushed me to let go of my intellectual writhing around rhythms and meanings and just let the words that come from deep within dance onto the page.

I spent decades writing lyrics, for the most part, a very tight, rhyme based style of writing where everything I wrote was in service to musical forms. Working with Judyth was like flying without a net. She was mid-wife, liberator and inspiration. I went crazy, and all the musicality in me exploded onto the written page. She is one of those rare teachers who is a gift to all who are privileged to work with her. Now, that will be everyone who reads this book."
I didn’t know I had a poem inside me until I took a class with Judyth Hill. I only came out of curiosity for that first meeting… but she unlocked precious and powerful moments and memories. Judyth gave me many many tools and practices that made it possible for me to express those experiences in a satisfying way. It has brought a beautiful richness and healing to my life.
