Lisa Weinert is the founder of Narrative Healing and author of Narrative Healing: Awaken the Power of Your Story. She has taught and lectured on the power of storytelling at institutions such as Wesleyan University, Everytown Gun Safety, School for Visual Arts, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, and Fortune 500 media companies. 

Beginning her career in literary publishing, she eventually became a certified yoga instructor with a specialty in trauma-informed, therapeutic and restorative yoga. She combined her professional training with her own experience with trauma to create Narrative Healing™, a writing program that seeks to release our stories in a way that is accessible and empowering. Instead of putting pen to paper immediately like most writing programs, Narrative Healing begins with the body and provides anyone—not just writers—a comforting and inclusive pathway to heal by first searching within.
