Story Journey: The Healing Tears

The Story

Seated under an elm, she struggled not to cry. But the pain of his abandonment was too overwhelming. She finally allowed the tears to fall. It was then that she heard the tiny voice, barely a whisper. She followed the sound and found no one. Only a leaf. But the leaf began to talk. “Finally! at last you allow your tears to fall! I’d thought you’d die with the poison inside." Story plus Welcome Kit, a 4-week journey and ceremony with several Story Alchemies that take you through the process of transmuting loss into love. Several Artchemy projects, poetry journey and more. Direct access via any device. read online. Lifetime Access.

The Story Alchemy

Whether you heart has been broken by separation, betrayal, the rejection of a loved one or the death of someone you loved, there is immense power inside that crack in your heart: the power to achieve a higher frequency of love, to love deeper, with more power and more freedom. This story journey takes you through this transformation.

The Story is decoded in several Story Alchemies, which are transformational experiences using art and creativity as the medium. Each module takes you through one such Story Alchemy.

These Story Alchemies allow you to shift your response from fighting pain, holding back tears (or being overwhelmed by them) and struggling with a broken heart to following the pain to find the source of your power and transmute your loss into love. 

The Story Alchemy in each module includes shamanic insights and tools, journal writing questions and an Artchemy(tm) Project (art as alchemy). An Artchemy can be creative writing, dance/movement, arts and crafts, using your voice and other creative activities. An Artchemy serves as a creative ceremony that allows you to deepen and quicken the transformation in that module.

In other words, you will take the shamanic wisdom in each module into your psyche through journal writing and then into your life, practice and actions through a creative ceremony.

There is a liberation once you realize that ~even if you still hurt~ love and The Divine are present at this moment and it is unfolding in divine perfection towards your highest potential. There is power in returning to yourself and becoming whole, becoming stronger and becoming more through this experience. That is the transformation in this Story Journey.

Includes the Flash Story plus Welcome Kit, a 4-week ceremony with several Story Alchemies that take you through the process of transmuting loss into love. Several Artchemy projects, poems, prayer, Artspiration cards, poetry journey and more.
