Healing Story Alliance is a not-for-profit, educational, arts organization which provides online resources and concert, workshop, and community programming in support of storytelling as a healing art.
Join us for an HSA special event fundraiser featuring Lani Peterson Psy.D. who will guide us on a remarkable Heroine’s Journey. Through telling our stories and listening to the stories of others who walk a similar path, we will explore within ourselves and between each other, the underlying knowledge, skills, and support we need to help us live our lives more fully.
Throughout our life’s journey we face challenges that reveal to us who we are in our depths, who walks with us, what we know and what we still need to learn. Whether we are looking at the arc of a day or the journey of a lifetime, we find similar patterns of being pulled into experiences that we sometimes embrace, and many times just endure. As women, what aspects of Campbell’s Hero’s Journey are unique to us, and how might we benefit from sharing our stories of challenge and triumph with our sisters?
More about the Workshop:
Finding the path can best be done through exploring the cornerstone stories of:
- Who I was before: Where did my story begin? How have early life context and experiences influenced who I have become?
- Who I am now: What have been the obstacles and challenges I have faced and what have I learned through meeting them? How have I changed because of it?
- Who I want to be: Where do I want my story to go from here? What do I want to continue to practice, learn and know as I heal and continue to grow?
- Sharing what I know: What do I want others to know that might help ease their own journey?
