I started Narrative Healing with one goal: to create a creative container for you to nurture your writing practice and provide opportunities to heal, connect, and grow alongside like-minded writers as you launch your voice into the world.
I’ve worked with dozens of award-winning and bestselling authors over the years as a writing coach, editor, and publicist. I am also a yoga teacher certified in restorative, therapeutic and trauma informed yoga. My career journey includes ten years at the Knopf / Doubleday group at Random House, and faculty positions in the writing programs at Wesleyan University. I started Narrative Healing with one goal – to help writers (re) connect with their bodies and share their stories in the world. Our programs help writers (re) connect with their bodies, develop a sustainable writing practice to heal from trauma and share their stories in the world. There is powerful life-changing medicine in our stories that can heal us personally and as a society.
Over the past four years we’ve reached thousands of writers across the U.S., at universities, wellness centers, yoga studios, retreats, conferences, museums and writing communities, but we still have much farther to go to open up our community to support and connect writers who are seeking the support, accountability, community and inspiration this community offers.
Our sense of storytelling and community is changing rapidly as so many of our realities shift. However what remains the same is the medically proven truth that writing is a healing practice that offers powerful medicine, and that telling our stories and being heard is the essence of what it means to be human. I’m committed to supporting your writing path and celebrating the practice of writing to connect and heal.
Looking around at our vast changing world, I’m inspired to grow our community and make it as accessible, nimble and helpful as possible. One thing I have learned is that we don’t do this alone, we do this together.
Welcome to our community, I hope it is helpful to you.
Narrative Healing offers a new paradigm for healing from trauma and tapping into creativity, and sharing our stories in the world. The premise here is simple: as we are able to better know our own stories, we are better able to take in the humanity of those around us.
Gentle accessible movements, mindfulness, and writing prompts wake up the stories you’re holding so you can use their true impact.
With meditation and mindfulness, you’re present with your stories to truly listen to what they have to say and connect with yourself.
Release stories onto the page in a healing, meditative practice that allows for returning without any destination in mind.
Open yourself up to your muse and spirit, your inner guide, and tap into your creative power for a relationship with a higher guide.
Practice trust and choice to receive the radical transformation and healing that comes from sharing your truth with another.
Grow beyond your story, engage with the world around you, and enjoy true connection, while also finding the power to heal others.
