James Navé facilitates our first salon for 2016 exploring the Hero's Journey.


One of the pioneers of the spoken word movement, Navé cofounded Poetry Alive!, a theater company which has performed poetry for over ten million K–12 students around the globe. With Julia Cameron, he cofounded and directed The Artist’s Way Creativity Camp which toured North America, teaching in Taos NM, Nashville, New York, Connecticut, and British Columbia. For 25 years he has taught writing, performance, and creativity on 5 continents; he has designed and facilitated executive creativity sessions for clients such as Timex, Pepsi, the National University of Ireland Galway, North Carolina Outward Bound, Gettliffe Architecture, and LKB Associates, Paris. Navé holds an MFA in Poetry from Vermont College Fine Arts. He is co-founder of Twice Five Miles, a creative think tank.

A member of the community since 2009,  he has been on the organizing team since 2013.
