A Weekly Writing Process to Prepare You to Write Your Book
Story Archaeology — Voice Liberation Lab
As you prepare to write and publish a book, if you also want to become more confident in your leadership, more deeply express your intuitive and empathetic gifts, this lab may be for you.
The Story Archeology — Voice Liberation Lab will support you in developing an embodied writing practice that matches your depths and serves your soul (and soul purpose.)
Just as the land has layers of sediment that tell a story, our bodies — energetic, physical, and spiritual — all hold aspects of our story.
The Somatic Writing process uses all the aspects of our embodied intelligence to retrieve our story, on every level.
When we retrieve our story through writing and sharing, we free our voices and untether our power from institutions, people, and beliefs that have made us feel smaller.
As we write into our vastness and liberate ourselves from fear and shame, we become transmitters of powerful truth with the ability to shift individual and cultural somas.
Somatic Writing is a body-centered writing process that will empower and inspire you to live from your wholeness, embody your depth of leadership, and serve your soul purpose.
This program is for healers, creatives, entrepreneurs, therapists, teachers, leaders, artists, performers, storytellers, writers, or anyone wishing to deepen and liberate their voice, write their story, and untether their power to write and publish a book to center their soul’s purpose and story.
This program is intended to serve women and gender non-conforming or non-binary people assigned female at birth. To be clear, we include trans women in the term "women". We also invite conscious men and male-identifying folks from the Somatic Memoir Lab to join the sessions. Please reach out to us if you have any questions!
1. Three 90-minute Story Liberation calls per month plus one 90-minute Narrative Practice call per month. These sessions happen every Tuesday at noon Central Time, U.S. In these sessions you will be supported to drop fully into your body and write from various aspects of yourself to access your personal vein of gold; the deeper, more potent and mystical stories connected to your soul identity.
2. A one hour monthly Full Moon Writing Accountability Circle, the last Sunday of every month at 5:00 p.m. Central Time U.S.

Do you know without a shadow of a doubt that writing and publishing a book is a profound desire and longing of your soul?
Are you also aware that perhaps you’re not quite ready to begin?
Not because of a problematic mindset issue, but rather because you are either lacking a consistent writing process or deal with unprocessed trauma that has prevented you from fully accessing your authentic voice.
Story Archeology is a one year program that is meant to serve as a jumping off point as you prepare to write your book.
In this weekly live writing workshop, you will learn:
How to access stored narratives to write from your body
Writing with Ancestors - bloodlines and creative/artistic ancestors
How to access Storylines and Songlines through your connection to the land
Writing into and through grief and trauma safely
Exploring provocative topics like untangling stubborn karmic knots
Writing into pleasure and the erotic
Liberating and expanding your writer’s voice
Untethering your power and growing your confidence to speak and write your deepest truths.
The environment is intense yet gentle, with room to explore stories that you’ve been longing to write all of your life haven't yet had the space to do it.
I love carving out a weekly space to reflect and share space with a community of creatives. So much of the work that Tanya brings into the Story Archeology sessions is work that aligns with work that I do in other spaces — but with a writing twist. Her trauma-informed and somatic approach is work that is profoundly connective, even if what you're connecting to is the lack of connection (or numbness) you feel. Tanya is a masterful facilitator!
I love the structure that she brings — her guided visualizations, the way she threads in spiritual wisdom with trauma-informed writing, and her gentle encouragement to go deep and not be afraid of what emerges. This approach integrated key lessons around my writing and creative self: to practice self-compassion around wherever I am at in my writing process; to bring a sense of pleasure and discovery to my writing; to trust in the support and wisdom that my body, my ancestors, and the earth herself gifts me with when I am still enough to listen; and to sense into the story I have created around my story and how that can be revised and re-envisioned.
Yoga Therapist and Resilience Coach
Tanya’s Story Archaeology program has helped me uncover poetry and myths in my body, relationships, lineage, and soul that I had no idea were there. Each week I get to craft new narratives and rewrite/compost old ones, in turn penning personal stories that are empowering, mystical, healing, and full of life. This process has helped me develop and remain connected to my essence as a writer and as a woman.

They access not only the root stories of our lives, but also uncover and reclaim visions and dreams we may have long forgotten or lost. Tanya builds community and welcomes the uniqueness of each of our voices."
