If you’ve ever needed to heal body, mind or soul, then do we have The Story You Need to Tell, show for you. Today I’ll be talking with Sandra Marinella, writing teacher, and the author of a beautiful new book on healing your soul, The Story You Need to Tell. And that’s just what I want to talk with her about today, about writing to heal from trauma, illness, or loss, how to do it, and how to begin. Key Points Discussed: When did Sandra discover the power of writing? How did Victor Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning inspire her? What happened when she was diagnosed with cancer? How did writing help her during this time? What did it mean to write her story? How did she begin writing her story? What was her mission through the healing process? How did she make the decision to re-write her life? What was Sandra’s mystical experience while writing? What’s the importance of reflection? What is waving, not drowning? What does it mean that choices matter? What can we learn from Cheryl Strayed? What’s the importance of a comforting place? Why do we want to go back and review our journals? What does it mean to find your writing pattern? How do we start writing? How do we choose a journal? What’s the importance of finding a writing place? Why is it good to meditate before writing? Are we all writers? What does it mean to fire our inner critic? How can writing help us hear and move toward positive change? Additional Resources: StoryYouTell.com …….

“We can rewrite our difficult stories and transform our lives.”
Sandra Marinella (read her new book The Story You Need to Tell) is doing so much beautiful work in the world in terms of healing and helping people share their story. I wasn’t kidding when I said she was an angel here on earth bringing hope to so many people through writing and recovery. She works with cancer patients as well as veterans returning from combat. This show really touched my heart on a deep level.
Sandra Marinella is an award-winning teacher and writer. In recent years she has taught more than 10,000 writers and given 200+ professional workshops.
When she wasn’t grading essays and short stories late at night, she wrote self-help articles for teens and recorded her life experiences in journals. She raised two wonderful–albeit challenging–sons, made incredible life-long friends, read stacks of books, and ate entirely too much dark chocolate.
In 2012 when she faced breast cancer, Sandra turned her focus from teaching to writing as a way of healing. She began volunteering with veterans and cancer patients. As she watched writing help them to transform their lives, she discovered her new passion—sharing the power of their stories and the methods they used to heal their lives.
After researching and writing her upcoming book, The Story You Need to Tell, Sandra founded the Story You Need to Tell Project at www.storyyoutell.com. Here individuals who want to write or tell their stories can discover life-changing stories and learn the power of reworking and editing their personal life stories with the goal of finding hope, inspiration, and a better way of living.
