There’s A Story For That

Whatever it is that is ailing you, there is a story for that. Finding just the right story at just the right time is an act of alchemy that takes place between me and the ones who come my way. Read with me and find new medicine hidden inside the pages of a short story picked exclusively for you.

 

Unwanted and unexpected change, particularly the kind brought on through loss, trauma or illness, can drop us into deep discouragement for life. Our brains and our bodies can find themselves looping in an endless story that does not feel good. Embracing the healing power of story while making a deep connection with other individuals to share that story can be a powerful remedy to inspire us to change and grow for the better.

 

“Magically, giving ourselves the gift of a different story, even a fictional one with joys and challenges apart from our own, shifts our perspective enabling the body to drop its fight or flight response and begin to heal.“

 Catherine Brooks

How Did Curative Shorts Come About?

My library of Curative Shorts stories has been well read and tested in bookstores, libraries and hospitals. At the start of the pandemic lockdown in 2020 I began offering complimentary story events in my home virtually twice a week for individuals and groups of up to 12. At the time, I was coming out of a protracted 6+ year patient experience, and high on my list of remedies was my belief in Curative Reading and all that I had learned about imagination, connection, and the power of story to heal. I knew I had to keep stories going for myself as well as others to help us all move out of the fight or flight response and boost our immune systems to fight the virus.  Since March of 2020, I have hosted over 65 complimentary short story events.
