"If I could create a language of the heart, the gut, the bowels, the brain -
a language of the spirit, a breeze that others might breathe, be cooled or warmed by - that would be nice.
Would be nice."

To hold up a mirror that is a daily and eternal reminder of how amazing you are. To help connect you to that warm ocean of language and vast library of knowledge that lives inside you. To tune you so precisely, deliciously and deliriously to the music of words that they, WORDS – tiny stars that they are – become Light-Sabers that open your senses, oxygenate your cells, and illuminate your deepest darknesses with connection and direction and peace.
To do anything and everything I can to help you fulfill on your Intention.
Online Writing Workshops In the Time of COVID-19: July 7th-August 29th
The Coronavirus--something we cannot discern with our five senses, something at once smaller and bigger than ourselves—has invaded the body politic. Literally. Fear and isolation can also be a virus bigger and smaller than ourselves, but we know it when we feel it. Hope and faith are like that, too. So is love. This is a precious time. We can commune. We can share stories. We can invent new prayers for our ever-changing world. If you’ve been in my classes or workshops, you know the drill: I provide a reading. You receive a prompt. You write for those magical 15 minutes. We read. We listen. If you’re a beginner, begin a practice. If you’re accomplished, remember the moment you face that blank page you’re still a beginner—and practice your practice. Come join the circle. I promise you an inspired and inspiring hour.
“Bruce has an uncanny ability to place himself completely into anyone’s shoes
and see from their perspective. He sees where they want to go with the stories
they are telling…. nothing short of a miracle worker…. a total inspiration.
If it were not for Gelfand, I would not have my Oscar or Emmy awards.”

“Bruce is a strong, loving, nurturing teacher who has helped me to tackle my writing demons,
expand my craft and take risks. I love the specificity of his notes and feedback,
along with the gentle thoughtful encouragement.
His intuition is scary good –
I trust the leaps that he’s encouraged me to make and I’ve learned a great deal.
He’s always been available to me for my special questions outside of class and
I am genuinely inspired by the writing prompts that he provides.
Awesome teacher, awesome man.”
