THE SOMATIC MEMOIR LAB:
Nine Steps to Write and Publish a Memoir with
Tanya Taylor Rubinstein
Thursday, May 20th, 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM Central Time
You've heard the call for your entire life, an inner directive that has always pointed you toward a purpose and mission that is extremely specific.
It can only be accomplished by you, and to do so, you'll need to completely surrender your ego, liberate your voice and share your story with the world.
You've birthed yourself over and over in this dying culture, have been pummeled, and not only survived, but have found a way to rise again and again to authentically thrive.
Everything that made you an outsider in the toxic culture has prepared you as a leader for the new world.
Are you ready?
None of us are.
But your soul knows.
Many of the current dominant narratives have created the emergency we're in globally in every aspect of the culture.
Which means for you personally:
It's Go Time.
Though you know you have incredible stories to share, you probably have no idea how to write a memoir.
Maybe you have several partially completed manuscripts on your hard drive, scraps of material from weekend-long writing workshops, bits and pieces of stories that you've read or written, knowing they contain a potent seed of your story.
But you know you have to do it. In your soul, even if you've struggled, you know you've always been a deep communicator.
Perhaps you’re inspired by writers like Gabor Mate, Brene Brown, Alice Walker, Elizabeth Gilbert, and Roxanne Gay.
Perhaps you have years worth of journals and morning pages. Still, you haven't been able to break through and center yourself enough (and get cogent in your own sense of internal structure) to write an entire story.
If you’re anything like me, you’re not only a writer.
You’re a natural leader, maybe a mystic or poet as well.
You have deep gifts that sometimes live in the shadow of your psyche.
And they’re waiting for you to allow them all the way out of the closet.
You get overwhelmed.
You don't know how to bring it together. Which stories from your past should you choose? Which are relevant to the universal message you have to share now?
You Don't Have to Do It Alone.
Each form of personal narrative has its own structures and rules.
