Your Invitation Awaits

Our goal isn't to just teach you how to tell a story.

We are a guide for guides. A first of its kind, this program will help you—interviewers, journalists, podcasters, marketing teams, and more—listen powerfully and bring forth the stories within others.

The first part of this journey focuses on you and your story and is available now by registering for The Story Hero: A Storytelling Course below. In this seven-week interactive course, you will not only dive in and learn how to articulate a specific story from your life, but you will also uncover how you are actually the hero of that very story. From learning the intricacies of what makes a truly compelling story to journaling assignments that bring your story to life, this course will take you through the beauty of storytelling and teach you how to apply that beauty to your own life.

The intermediate follow-up course (coming soon!) takes everything that you’ve learned from our original storytelling curriculum and uses it as the foundation to help take you from being a storyteller to becoming a story guide. Giving you comprehensive tools that highlight such components as active listening, creating psychological safety, and how to ask impactful questions, you will learn how to create space for others to experience their own hero’s journey.

Accept the challenge. Become a professional storytelling guide.
