Welcome to my site! I’m so glad you visited. Since you’re here, I’d like to tell you a little about myself. I’m a storyteller whose mission is to use tools from my ancient Babylonian heritage and from what I’ve learned over the decades to help people, through writing and spiritual practices, identify and break through habitual patterns that hinder them from reaching their fullest potential.
Watch my two-minute book trailer to get a glimpse into my life:
Stories have power. They connect us to our humanity, tie us to our past, and they allow us a glance into our future. Stories convey a message, teach a lesson, and shape our existence and civilization. Storytellers keep the cultural traditions, history, and legends alive through storytelling. Storytelling not only imparts the wisdom, values, and behavior of one generation to succeeding generations, but it can also help heal. For over two decades, medical practice has increasingly recognized the significance of what’s come to be called “narrative medicine” to the patient’s healing. Narrative medicine is a wholesome medical approach that recognizes the value of people’s narratives in clinical practice, research, and education as a way to promote healing.
Ninety percent of Americans want to write a book and the global wellness market is now worth $3.4 trillion: people are drawn to writing because, if done regularly and with intent, it has an incredible healing and inspiring power – physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.
A number of medical schools such as Columbia University now have Narrative Medicine master’s program. Columbia states on their website that “The effective practice of healthcare requires the ability to recognize, absorb, interpret, and act on the stories and plights of others. Medicine practiced with narrative competence is a model for humane and effective medical practice. It addresses the need of patients and caregivers to voice their experience, to be heard and to be valued, and it acknowledges the power of narrative to change the way care is given and received.”
You can create a new interpretation that takes you out of your past and into the present and a new future. You do that once you identify the story that is running your life. You release that story and are then able to pursue your dreams while enjoying healthy relationships and living a sacred family life. For decades, I’ve used my storytelling abilities to change my narrative and to help others transform their lives by changing their own narratives.
