FAQ

Who is this course for?

This course is designed for those who want to engage storytelling as a tool for healing and meaning making. You may already identify as a leader, healer, facilitator or guide or you may want to step into such a role. You may be an angel in the making, meaning you don’t need titles to show up as a pillar and supporter in the world you walk in, and you know these skills will help you grow yourself and help increase your capacity to support others. 

Who is this course NOT for?

This program is not for you if :

1) You want a passive experience, meaning you just want to sit back and watch without participating.

2) You don’t feel like exploring the depths of your life experience right now, prefering to simply “skim the surface.”

3) You don’t want to engage with others or be a part of other people’s learning journey right now.

What is the difference between the certification program and each module?

The five modules create a comprehensive program that walks through 5 different kinds of story modalities and stages of working with storytelling as a tool for healing. Each of the five modules also stands on its own as a complete experience. 

Those who complete the certification program receive 5 added components: 

  • Private sessions with me
  • An opportunity to present on your understanding of story for healing
  • A practicum of hosting an event for your community (in person or online) 
  • Small groups to work with throughout the year
  • Monthly group meetings
Can I register for just 1 module?

Yes, definitely! You can register for one or more modules and not go through the full certification process. 

Do I need to have any experience in storytelling to attend this course?

No experience is necessary! You will be guided through all of the storytelling development processes along the way so you will experience everything first hand for yourself. Keep in mind that this course is not designed for professional storytellers, but rather for those who want to understand how story can impacts and influence their own personal transformative journey as well their healing practice. 

If I cannot attend the live session will there be a replay?

All participants have life long access to replays. 

What is the Cancellation Policy?

The nature of the work working with story as a tool for healing will require that you leave your comfort zone.You will meet the edges of what is familiar. There is a powerful field that supports movement and growth when you are in a collective where everyone is committed to keep showing up and to moving through the blocks and the uncomfortable places together. By registering for this course, you are signing up to go the distance, engaging and using the tools of sacred storytelling to face whatever discomfort or challenges that may come up for you.

However, occasionally someone walks into a first class, and in the first moments realizes they are not in the place that is in alignment for them. If this is you, you may contact us within 48 hours to receive a refund minus a $30 admin fee. If you feel you want to cancel more than 48 hours after class begins, we understand. Occasionally major changes in life situations happen such as a death or massive transition that prevents you from attending. If you find yourself in one of those life situations, your tuition can be applied to the tuition of a future class, minus a $30 admin fee.
