In this interview, Reggie and Kent explore the role of “cultural givens” in how we engage in conversation.“Enough with the…Talking Points: Doing More Good than Harm in Conversation” Chapter 1 – Kent Frazier interviews Reggie Marra.
In this 12-minute video, we’ll work with imagery – using sensory, concrete language that appeals to the senses.

Enjoy!Grave and Goofy Poems: Narrative Healing in Uncertain Times – Episode 2 / Imagery 4.1.20 from Reggie Marra on Vimeo.
This video, from Wainwright House in Rye, NY, is a recent presentation of the poem, preceded by about 4 minutes of the story behind the poem.
If you’d like to read the poem on the page, the best way (for both of us) is for you to purchase a copy of And Now, Still: Grave and Goofy Poems, which is available on Amazon, and also available here, at a 30% discount if you use this code when you check out: ADXSKKVR.
Buy the book and you’ll get 44 additional poems and help feed me. Great deal!
If, of course, you’d like to read the poem without supporting the arts by buying a book that helps feed a poet, you can click on the right sidebar photo of me dressed in black and talking with my hands. A PDF will appear. And I’ll still need to be fed.
Some months ago I was asked to write a “healing narrative” as part of a larger project with some Integral Coaching® colleagues. Through our work together, which is ongoing, I came to see that I have negotiated, and continue to negotiate, grief and healing in my life through 5 practices or modalities – writing, meditation, physical exercise, being/wandering in nature, and relationship/conversation.
The interview is just under 33 minutes, downloadable, and accessible by clicking here.
In upcoming blogs, I will explore each of the 5 healing modalities individually.
Thanks for staying tuned.
