Narrative Healing with Lisa Weinert

Narrative Healing with Lisa Weinert Helping writers (re)connect to their bodies Born and raised in New York City, I’m one of five children and the daughter of a writer. I came of age in book culture.

I pursued publishing right out of college because I was, and still am, inspired by the power of narrative to transform.

In 2002 I began my career in the heart of investigative journalism at The Nation magazine, which was founded by abolitionists and is the oldest weekly magazine in the United States. It was post-9/11 New York, and as the first web intern I got to cover anti-war protests and prot

NH Founder Lisa Weinert is checking off a major goal: writing her first book!

NARRATIVE HEALING: A MIND-BODY APPROACH TO AWAKENING THE HEALING POWER OF YOUR STORY will be in bookstores in 2023 (Hachette Go)!

More than a book about writing, it’s also about healing; it’s a holistic path forward to listening to, expressing, and sharing our stories in the world.

She’ll share the practices and prompts that she leans into day in and day out in her classes and workshops. She writes, "The healing power of sharing your story is not based on literary merit, nationality, race, class, gender or physical or mental ability. It goes deeper than that. It’s biological. Our bodies are our stories and we tell our stories to release them in order to be healthy and free."

So, if you've ever left a workshop, wanting more and ready to share our work with your community, this is the book for you 😊

Accountability is the secret sauce in our upcoming program, The Circle. Why? Because it works. Essentially, accountability is being held responsible for the achievement of your goals.

Ever participated in a book club? Then you know gathering with others to discuss the latest novel makes it far more likely that you’ll find the time to read it.

The same goes for writing. As it turns out, a recent study from @atdnational found that individuals have the following probabilities of completing a goal by taking these actions:
Having an idea or goal: 10% likely to complete the goal
Consciously deciding that you will do it: 25%
Deciding when you will do it: 40%
Planning how to do it: 50%
Committing to someone that you will do it: 65%
Having a specific accountability appointment with someone you’ve committed to: 95%

Today we are so happy to shine a light on our dear friend and member of Narrative Healing, Mitzi Melaine Wilson (she/her). Mitzi is a dynamic community leader with an integrated background in law, public administration, social ethics, and embodied practice. She deeply believes in the transformative power of a nourished spirit, engaged heart, and inspired mind. Her work is centered on the belief that our collective wellbeing is tied to our ability to show up fully as embodied leaders. She centers healing and aliveness in her work and holds deeply to a future where everyone is free to thrive and flourish.

See below for a sneak peek of our Q&A with Mitzi (@emergeflourish) from the Narrative Healing Membership Community - want to read more? Head to the link in our bio and sign up to become a member today!

NH: Why do you write?

MMW: My writing is a craft - an expression of myself and a part of a living tradition of storytellers. I write to put felt sense to the page to call us back to our lived experience. I am currently moved by the way that we can recalibrate our experience with time away from the pace of capitalist production through the written word.

Today we are so happy to be highlighting a dear friend of Narrative Healing, Anne Gimm. Anne is a writer and Mother of 2 sons. She received her MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts and is currently writing a novel. Anne was kind enough to share her meaningful words about her work, passions, and writing practice.

NH: What are you passionate about right now?

AG: I am passionate about the body—how I take care of it, how it moves, what I feed it, how I am listening to it. I study athletes and dancers, and I am instinctively drawn to art and photography that meditate on the beauty of the human form. I’ve recently taken up tennis again so I can keep stepping onto the court with my teenagers. And of course, yoga helps me heal myself in myriad ways. I find that my attunement to the physical form invites the writing part of my brain to rest.
