About Michael Namkung

Listen to the old ones, listen to the new ones
—they are your past and future selves.
Handle with care the ones in the middle

—they are your fellow travelers, yourself in others’ clothes.
Listen to them, but beware their directions
—their road is not yours.


Excerpt from “Time Still” © Michael Namkung 2020

Hi, I’m Michael Namkung. I’m an artist and poet. Recently, I toured a one-man show of poetry, storytelling and extreme sports called Seeing The Invisible that I performed in California, Oregon and Western Australia.

I work to draw the invisible undercurrents of reality into view. Without a connection to the invisible, many of us walk through life besieged or even traumatized by life. My work aims to right that—to rekindle our imaginations and remind my readers of their innate creative capacities. To be fully human is to feel an ancient and primal energy uprising and to boldly give it expression. Our capacity to dream and create a better world lies in the balance.

I’m blessed to belong to a community that believes in the healing power of art, and I’m here on Patreon to invite you to be a part of building this vision through a monthly membership program.

I'm currently writing a new book of poetry (to be published in 2021), writing new talks and stage performances, and working on bringing my work into prisons. There are other projects in the works too, and when you become a member, you'll get an inside look into what goes on behind the scenes in my creative process.

When you become a patron, you’ll get access to private updates, works-in-progress and exclusive content, and you'll join a community of subscribers who are boldly facing the deeper, unknown parts of themselves. I invite you to join me on this paradigm-shifting journey.

Thank you.
