Narrative medicine is a fascinating new field that recognizes the role of story and meaning in health, happiness, and wellbeing. In this weekend writing workshop led by a New York Times best-selling author known for her tender exploration of the human spirit, you have the opportunity to rewrite your own narrative and discover the vector of love that forms the invisible warp of light upon which your life story is loomed.

The stories we habitually tell ourselves change our brain circuitry, our relationships, and path through the world. They can elevate life to heaven on earth, or drop us unceremoniously into the fire.

In this workshop you will:

  • Explore your life myths, both sacred and profane
  • Harvest the wisdom of deep discontent
  • Use the written word to transform darkness into light
  • Learn the arc of transformational storytelling
  • Change your brain and your life by changing your story
  • Discover the relationship of story to affective neurobiology


Joan’s wisdom and heartfelt storytelling are powerful and transformational. I felt inspired to make changes in my life.—Past Participant

At a turning point in my life, I longed for the serenity of Yogaville. When Joan Borysenko’s program popped up, there was no hesitation. I loved the program and gained the tools to continue on my soul’s purpose. — Martha Russell

Official times for check-in: 4 pm and check-out: 2 pm
