"This groundbreaking program shifts our perspective on healing and enables us to progress toward a path of complete well-being and show up as our best selves."
— JAMIA WILSON, Bestselling author of Young, Gifted and Black
Hello, I'm Lisa Weinert, author and founder of Narrative Healing and I’m so happy you are here. I created Narrative Healing, a mind-body writing program, in 2016, with one goal - to help people connect with the stories within their bodies and share them with in the world.
I have witnessed again and again that there is healing medicine in our stories that can transform us personally and as a society. I have worked with hundreds of authors as a publicist, editor and coach and am a certified yoga teacher with specialties in restorative and trauma informed yoga.
This page marks the beginning of our journey together, and below you’ll find an overview of our offerings to support your writing life.
I’m looking forward to supporting your writing path and practicing together!
In love and service,

Narrative Healing: Awaken the Power of Your Story
NARRATIVE HEALING: Awaken the Power of Your Story (Hachette Go!)
"Lisa Weinert gives us a timely reminder that a writer is a body and not just an intellect. Somatic practices and writing prompts combine to resource the nervous system and release hidden stories. Whether you want to write your way to healing or open yourself to deeper and more authentic writing, this book is a must-read.”
Following her own personal healing journey, Lisa draws upon twenty years of experience to offer a new paradigm for personal growth, self-care and community action through an embodied writing practice. Combining somatic practices, creative prompts, and mindfulness exercises, Lisa guides you through the six steps of healing through storytelling: awaken, listen, express, inspire, connect, and grow. Incorporating creativity as a core part of the process, Narrative Healing provides writers and non-writers a comforting yet equally empowering process to find a path to themselves and find deep connection with the world around them.
The premise here is simple: our stories have a healing purpose and are meant to be shared. As we are able to better know our own stories, we are better able to take in the humanity of those around us.
