"You're going to heal yourself as you go through this. You're going to heal yourself because stories heal the brain, they heal the heart, and they heal the soul."

The Generosity of Scars storytelling workshop brings veterans and/or military family members together to connect and to share their scars and experiences with each other through the power of story. Stories give us a sense of ourselves through resolution and healing. The deepest scars from your past can be re-purposed into narratives to help you transcend your struggles and provide meaning and purpose in your life.

Warrior cultures from the past knew that allowing returning soldiers to publicly share their experiences from combat, with one another as well as the civilian population, was critical to their successful reintegration into society. Unfortunately, we no longer do this. In fact, many veterans feel that to be open and vulnerable somehow makes them weak. They carry their trauma inside and are never truly able to escape the horrors from their past and become fully present.

Using proven, science-based methods that The Heroes Journey has successfully deployed around the country, a Heroes Journey Generosity of Scars workshop will help you:

  • Build your story, practice telling it, and then share it with others, all in a safe environment.
  • Help heal the re-traumatization caused by the chaotic end of the 20-year Forever War.
  • Become a Warrior Storyteller – someone who has lived a life of service to others and shares the
    wisdom of that life of service through purposeful stories.

Under the supervision of board-certified mental health professionals and veteran storytelling coaches, warriors will learn how to take their trauma and shape it into powerful healing stories, which will allow them to communicate more effectively with their families and communities, and finally find their voice and tell their stories after so many years of remaining silent.
