Story Circles & Writing Workshops

Celebrate life with Life Stories sessions to finally trust your voice and tell your stories.wf1_banners_anthony-de-mellow
You don’t need to wait until you are ‘old enough’ to have experienced epic moments in life or to record them alongside ordinary moments that hold meaning and memories. Even if you don’t consider anything about your life to be epic in nature, your life journey thus far is significant and deserves to be signposted in a special way.

This Life Stories service focuses on the telling and retelling of the moments that matter the most to you and your loved ones. Imagine being able to hear your favorite stories of a loved one regardless of how near or far they are. Now imagine your life stories being shared with loved ones during and/or after your lifetime. Sometimes it’s easier to imagine not telling your stories which can leave us feeling sad and incomplete in terms of honoring this one and only life of ours. Getting your stories out is another way to shine our light bright 

unnamed-19Who you are today is the culmination of your life’s experiences–and what stories you’ve told yourself about them. Whether we recognize it or not, we all have incredible stories to share. Stories have a way of drawing us in and captivating our imaginations, transporting us back and forth to times and places we might never otherwise have had the opportunity to visit.

Healing Stories (previously Thrive and Shine) offers unique story-sharing and story-making experiences with Mary Rives who merges her love of storytelling with her authorship and deep listening abilities to draw out your unique stories.

Monthly Story Circles for Women

The power of women gathering is immeasurable.

It’s time to Shine!

Whether you are in your power and truth or if you fear visibility, doubt your light, or blame or judge yourself and/or others, Story circles may be for you. Our collectively reactive ways are old and their time is up. The world needs us to step beyond conditioning and out of our inner and outer shackles to find the fullness of our truths, courage, and creativity. Now is the time to shine, and to do it, we need each other’s support and sistering.



Participate in circle sharing, creative activities, ceremony, and meditations that will leave you feeling grounded, connected, rejuvenated, loved and present. Experience the magic that happens when women gather, take time for yourself and fill your cup.
