We will use our sessions to talk through your creative work and I will offer tailored, generative feedback. These sessions are best for considering both broader challenges in one’s creative practice, as well as for receiving feedback on a specific, ongoing project.

If you’re interested in working together, but are unsure if this is the right format to you, please feel free to reach out at studio.agduplan@gmail.com.

Here are some examples of things we can address:
  • Feeling stuck while working on a project, and unsure about what direction to take the project in
  • Being introduced to work by other artists and writers who might be relevant to you
  • Considering new creative directions in your practice
  • Reflecting on your arts career so far and setting goals for the future
  • Revisiting your existing work practices and setting up new practices

These sessions are available as single sessions, or as a bundle of sessions (best for working through more complex issues).

Scheduling link will be sent upon purchase.

Devotional Practice: Daylong Meditation Retreat

Devotion can mean a lot of things. Usually, the word “devotion” conjures up images of churches and other religious contexts. But we likely experience devotion every day––our devotion to our loved ones, to ourselves, to our careers. We could think of devotion as a kind of passionate committment.

We need fuel to sustain our devotions. For some, this might be the gratification of making slow but undeniable progress towards a goal. For others, it might be the warm feeling we get when a young person thanks us for being there for them. Meditation practice can also help sustain devotional practice.

During this daylong retreat, we will attune our heart to the many practices of devotion through seated and walking meditation, discussion, light movement, and other creative-therapeutic approaches.

I’ll draw from my expereinces with Bhakti yoga, lovingkindness (metta) meditation, and more. Participants will be encouraged to think about the role of devotion is in their daily lives, in their own unique way, whether it be devotion to frends, family, pets, a Higher Power, or one’s ancestors.

This meditation retreat is best for those with some prior meditation experience. During the session, I will give two dharma talks, during which we’ll have ample time for Q&A. We’ll also have periods of seated meditation, alternating with walking meditation. 

The date of this session is February 26, 2023, from 12-6pm EST, and it is being held via Zoom only. 

Please feel free to email us with questions at studio.agduplan@gmail.com.


I’ll tailor a 30-minute guided meditation to your particular needs. Then we’ll have an additional half hour to talk through any concerns arising in your meditation practice.  

Some things we can work through:
  • Making time for meditation in daily life
  • Finding the right style of meditation for you
  • Attentional issues in meditation
  • Integrating meditation and creative practice
  • Relationship-focused meditation practices, e.g. lovingkindness meditation
  • Connecting more deeply with the body

I will draw on a my 16-year meditation practice across a number of modalities, including Advaita Vedanta, a number of Buddhist schools, Bhakti Yoga, and secular meditation (i.e. mindulness meditation).

Decolonize Your Creative Voice


Language carries violence. How do writers, coming from all professions, develop an ethic in language’s teaching, construction, and connotation?

Inspired by June Jordan’s essay “Nobody Mean More to Me than You and the Future Life of Willie Jordan”, this workshop focuses on reclaiming authenticity, moving away from white cultural ideas of legibility, and towards the power of Black English through in-class prompts, group readings of poetry and theory, and super fun group discussions.
