Join me as I chat with published and in-progress memoirists, storytellers and healers about memoir writing, healing, embodiment, somatics and story.
Talking about the things that shape us – our life stories, our bodies, our healing and marvelous stories – these are conversations that matter – personal, transformative and honest.
I believe that conversations of depth are good medicine. They’re the antidote to feeling alone with personal challenges that are more appropriately situated in cultural, societal and historical contexts.
I believe these conversations can be catalysts for learning, growth and connection.
Our conversation was a uniquely grounding gift to me, and it’s come back to me with a lot of tenderness in the months since we spoke.Thank you for your beautiful questions and for holding space for everything that tumbled out of our exchange.You’re offering something really singular and life-giving.
