From writing to performance, Speak Up is a 6-week journey through the depths and power of the self through Spoken Word.

Dive into what it means to be vulnerable, witness self-judgement and step into the empowerment of speaking your truths.

Come out of this course with the confidence to make a difference in your life, whether that means standing up to your boss or starting your own business, speaking at a wedding, touring internationally or simply being more comfortable to be yourself.

Who is it for?

This course is perfect for anyone wanting to build their confidence, their creativity or even to step back inwards towards a more authentic vulnerability. Whether you are an occasional public speaker, a yoga teacher, or just passionate about poetry this course will support and encourage your blossoming voice.

Are you ready to be Totally and Utterly Yourself?

To shine without fear of your own light? To be Creative, Vulnerable and Radically Authentic…. no matter how many people are watching you?

I acknowledge that this course is happening on stolen land. That this is, and always will be, Aboriginal land and sovereignty was never ceded.
My deepest respects to the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, to their elders past, present and emerging.
