Today’s episode were we dig into trauma, transformation, and healing.

 Trauma is defined as: a deeply distressing or disturbing experience.

We all carry levels of trauma with us, but this week’s guest, Janelle Hardy, is teaching us how to use our personal stories as a way to heal and transform.

Janelle Hardy is a writer, artist, host of the Personal Mythmaking Podcast and the creator/teacher of a 5-month transformational memoir-writing course called The Art of Personal Mythmaking.

She’s a born and raised Yukoner, a solo mother, who has been working as a trauma-informed bodyworker in the hands-on healing arts fields for 13+ years and as an artist (writing, painting + dance) for 17+ years. Throughout that time she’s taught adults out of her living room, arts centres, universities and community colleges.

For the past 4+ years she’s integrated all of her expertise, including a BA in Anthropology, an MA in Dance and a Diploma in Structural Integration, into supporting people in their creative healing work via the alchemy of transformational memoir-writing.

In this week’s episode Janelle and I discuss:
-The Impact of Childhood Trauma
-How writing a memoir is therapeutic and healing
-Working through our personal stories without re-traumatizing ourselves
-Understanding how Fairytales can aid in the journey of healing
…and MORE!
