“It is true that the mind is restless and difficult to control, but it can be conquered… through regular practice and detachment” (6.35) – The Bhagavad Gita, c. 500-200 BCE.

Workshop Description: The power of story to heal was understood 2,000 years ago. We now have over 30 years of research that confirms this philosophical, intuitive understanding. This workshop will engage you in your own narrative healing process, introduce the salient history, philosophy and research, and prepare you to write and revise your story from a salutogenic, rather than pathogenic, perspective. Deepen your abilities to embrace your own healing and nurture that of your clients, patients, students or loved ones. Find out: do you have your story – or does your story have you?

Whether you are navigating your own personal healing, coming to terms with the ongoing cultural and societal healing that is necessary to address American violence at home and abroad, or the larger global issues of pain and suffering, story matters. Your narrative impacts what you see, how you see and what you can do next. Join us on April 7 for an experiential introduction to narrative healing.

Remember your pen, paper, laptop or whatever you write with and on!

Reggie Marra will facilitate this workshop and also read selections from his forthcoming book, Killing America.

We appreciate your paying by check or cash at the door.
A light lunch is included.

  1. I’m so excited about this workshop since I have attended Reggie Marras’ presentations at the Unitarian Society of New Haven. I hope people will enjoy his work as I have.
