Loraine Y. Van Tuyl is the author of the multi-award-winning debut memoir, Amazon Wisdom Keeper: A Psychologist’s Memoir of Spiritual Awakening (She Writes Press, Oct 2017). Loraine will discuss the soul yearnings and spiritual blueprints that our heroic transformation and skillfully crafted memoirs and personal stories ignite and catalyze in our readers. As a therapist and healer, she was surprised to receive feedback like this from strangers: “Who I am today doesn’t recognize the person I was back in September. I know that change, in large part, is from reading your book.” It majorly boosted her appreciation for the healing power of the written word and motivated her to distill and package her “medicine” and immediately start writing her second book, a self-help book. What you will learn from the discussion:
- How to flex and exercise your empathy and compassion muscles.
- How to identify and include universal wounding patterns and healing shifts in your unique story
- How to build catalytical, transformative momentum that encourages and elevates readers
- How to identify your purpose and callings through your writing, and extract programs and services inspired by your writing that your readers will hunger for after completing your book.
