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 was hooked.

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 c

“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. There’s no way around these two things that I’m aware of, no shortcut… If you don’t have the time to read, you don’t have the time or the tools to write.”​​​​​​​​
—Stephen King​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
On my bedside table right now is Stephen Cope's The Dharma in Difficult Times, Creatures are Stirring by Jacob Altshuler, Julia Sedlock, Novelist as a Vocation by Haruki Murakam and the latest New Yorker featuring a great piece by Ann Tashi Slater.​​​​​​​​

It’s been a while since I’ve introduced myself and we have lots of new friends in this community practicing writing as a form of self care and community action. Hello! I want to get to know you, too. Tell me about yourself please! ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Here is more about me: ​​​​​​​​
I’m passionate about the healing power of storytelling. I’m a writer, teacher and trauma-informed yoga teacher. I’ve been working with writers for over 20 years and have had a committed yoga and meditation practice alongside my life in letters. ​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
I’m the author of “Narrative Healing: Awaken the Power of Your Story” coming out this spring. I created Narrative Healing TM in 2016 with one goal: to help people reconnect with the stories within and share them in their chosen community. There is powerful life-changing medicine in our stories that can heal and transform us personally and as a society.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
Over the years, we’ve reached thousands of writers across the U.S, at universities, wellness centers, yoga studios, museums, retreats, conferences, nursing homes, and hospitals but we still have so much farther to go to open up our community to support and connect writers.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
My goal here is to create a creative container for you to nurture your writing practice and provide opportunities to connect, support, and grow alongside like-minded writers as you lift your voice into the world.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
I offer weekly live Narrative Healing classes, a mind-body community writing experience every Friday at noon ET, as well as workshops, events, classes coaching and more. Hop over to our bio to learn more and sign up - the first month is free!​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
I’m also a native New Yorker, and have a love for this town that won’t quit. I live in New York City with my husband and sweet and very silly pup. ​​​​​​​​

We’ve been waiting for this one!
⁣⁣
Narrative Healing founder joins acclaimed author, Maud Newton () tomorrow, Wednesday 12/21 at 12pm ET for an in-depth conversation about Maud’s first groundbreaking book “Ancestor Trouble: A Reckoning and a Reconciliation “ which has been named a best book of 2022 by The New Yorker, NPR, The Washington Post and many others. They will discuss how our ancestors shape how we perceive the world, what we share, and how we feel in our bodies. Maud writes, “making this reckoning as explicit as possible releases me from the idea that I will ever be free of this history. My understanding of the power of all our ancestors for each of us and all of us will continue to take shape in me as long as there is breath in my body.”

Join us live on the winter solstice. Together we’ll discuss this fallow time of the year and explore how to sift through the hidden parts we all hold.

Tune in on 12/21 at noon ET for what is sure to be a powerful conversation.

dropping in with a mindfulness practice and prompt to support being present with powerful emotions.

It’s always a challenge to find your center amidst big feelings and distractions. Sometimes it feels like we’re getting a lot of opportunities to practice this, with seismic events happening on a daily and sometimes hourly rate. Additionally every time we experience a trauma, it kicks up every other trauma we’ve lived through or inherited.

In this practice, Lisa offers a gentle guided experience to listen to and tend to the wisdom of whatever emotion you are holding and transforming them into healthy action (whether that’s action, rest or something in between).

PS Remember this practice is about being with the whatever comes up and returning to the present moment. Watch the whole video for opportunities to work with this: a special appearance of .joy.21 barking and the Pride parade outside 🌈

We NEED each other. The collective power of community enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn't as individuals. Each month, the Narrative Healing Community gathers to deepen our connections with each other, in order to create the space to intentionally show up in in conversation, in our stories, in our practice and with our 💕.

This month's gathering? 📆 Friday, July 1 at 1PM EST.

06/16/2022

If your body keeps the score, then your throat holds the mic. Being sensitive & attuned to what your throat & neck have to say can enhance your storytelling toolkit. Our founder, Lisa Weinert recently shared a targeted practice with the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies designed to tap into the power of the throat as you seek and share your truth.

Psst: You don’t need an agent, or special masterclass. You simply need to align with the editor that is already built within.

1️⃣To begin, let’s warm up.
2️⃣ You can keep your eyes open or closed for this. Take a few deep breaths and bring your awareness to your neck and throat right now, as they actually are. Is this area relaxed? Tense? Congested? Sing-songy?
3️⃣ Offer yourself small, gentle movements that are calling to you. Perhaps you want to roll your neck, or gently nod your head yes and no and maybe. For a little extra, place your hands on the back of your neck and give yourself a light massage.
4️⃣ Now, find yourself and your seat. Feel the ground beneath you and relax your shoulders. Lift your face towards the sky and feel your spine elongate. Begin to focus your breathing on the area of your throat. On an inhale, breathe into the full circumference of your neck, you’re filling a balloon. Exhale to release, deflating the balloon. Repeat this breath five times.
5️⃣ As you breathe, imagine the inside of our throat. Is it like a bridge? A highway? Is there another passageway speaking to you? Spend a minute in a self-guided tour of your throat, inside the container of your neck.
6️⃣ Close by swallowing to allow the throat to soften even more.

Writing prompt: Visualize the throat as a passageway between your mind and your body. Describe what you see, smell, and feel as you move along the passageway. What is the environment like? Is it crowded? Empty? Fast? Slow? Is anyone else there? Use your imagination. Write freely for ten minutes as you explore.

For more on this practice and the critical role of the throat, read Lisa’s full article for OMEGA 👉 https://www.eomega.org/articles/your-throat-holds-mic

There are as many ways to help as there are humans on earth. Everyone has their own specific nervous system, set of circumstances and responsibilities. Maybe you give, maybe you march, maybe you canvass, maybe you tend to who you are caring for (and this includes you). Whatever it is that you can do, you need to be ready to suit up and show up with a huge, huge heart.

This week's Shine On series, honors a driving force and inspiration behind the creation of Narrative Healing: Jill Iscol.

Social champion, educator, and author, in the world of non-profits, Jill was a powerhouse, driven by a deep compassion and a staggering fount of energy that she used on behalf of the less fortunate and the forgotten. Her book Hearts on Fire was a call to action to galvanize a new generation of social activists. "There was always a clear message from my parents," she wrote, "through words and example, that it was up to those blessed with more to help those with less, not from a sense of noblesse oblige but from a genuine identification with each person's humanity."
We lost Jill too soon; May 22, 2022 in New York City after a brief illness. She was 75.

Her foundation, Hearts On Fire identifies and showcases some of the most inspirational and committed individuals working to change the world for the better. Launched in 2014 following the release of the nonfiction book Hearts on Fire: Stories of Today's Visionaries Igniting Idealism into Action by Jill and Peter Cookson, the mission of Hearts on Fire is to inspire people from all walks of life to join the social change movement and to create and grow a community of like-minded individuals.

Lisa remembers, "Jill was relentless in her pursuit of compassion and rigorous in how she celebrated others - and her efforts yielded big and lasting positive change. Working with Jill on Hearts on Fire, and getting to spend so much time in her magnificent presence truly changed and transformed my life and inspired so much of the work I do today. She embodied a way of living and being I had read about but had never truly witnessed first hand until I met her."

In her honor, the family suggests donations to any of the Hearts on Fire Visionaries. Find the complete list at the link in our bio.

Shining the spotlight on who will be making a special appearance this July at our retreat.

After spending nearly 20 years in Corporate America,Shelly decided to stop following the expected path and start following her lifelong passion – mindfulness and meditation. At the heart of Shelly’s practice is a fierce justice warrior and social activist. Shelly combines the pragmatic business skills she learned in the corporate world with the tenets of mediation and mindfulness to make the world a better place.

Shelly is a student of the Shambhala Buddhist tradition and is certified in MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction). She is also an in-process certified Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (founded at Google over a decade ago) teacher. Her contemplations and lessons shared freely over social media have gained tens of thousands of followers, and she was recently referred to as one of the most “Powerful Women in Mindfulness” by mindful. org.

The author of Sit Down to Rise Up: How Radical Self-Care Can Change the World, she is also the founder of Pandemic of Love, a global, grassroots mutual aid community. Her work has been featured in more than 100 media outlets, including CNN Heroes of 2020, Forbes, Upworthy, The Kelly Clarkson Show, CBS This Morning, the New York Times and Washington Post.

This summer, join , with an incredible roster of guest writers, teachers, and healers (including Shelly!) for this 5 day, in-person retreat will enhance how you listen to, create, and share stories.

Through embodied practices like gentle movement and meditation, creative prompts, as well as listening circles and moderated conversations, you’ll find a rich, integrated way to dive into Narrative Healing principles so you can bring this work into your home, your classroom, your office, your community, and the world beyond.
