From USA, we present Associate Professor of Psychology, Author, Integrated Practitioner, Lewis Mehl Madrona MD PHD and Barbara Mainguy MA Therapist from the Coyote Institute, for an transformative day workshop.

We are all familiar with superheroes, war heroes, and heroes of myths and legends, but we don't often focus on our everyday heroism. Heroism occurs when we take action to improve the world, or our lives in the face of uncertainty.

This program uses Heroic stories from Native America, Ancient Greece and Rome, indigenous Australia and Japan to explore what it means to be heroic. Familiar characters like Coyote and Glouscape just might make an appearance,

Interactive: Come and join us for a fun and transformatiive day. We will work toward personal and world change through writing, drawing, movement, singing and dialogue- To awaken your Inner Hero. You don't need talent in any of those activities to fully participate.

Why should you attend?: This workshop is for anyone who wants to foster transformation in others, in their community, or in themselves. It is for storytellers, therapists, healers people who experiences other realities e.g voices & visions, . All are welcome.

We work with story. Story is the way we make meaning of the world. A metaphor for human adaptation.

"Hearing and telling stories are integral to healing. When hearing stores about healing from people who seem like us, we become inspired to believe that our own healing is possible."
—Lewis Mehl-Madrona

Storyteller, Native American healer, and graduate of the Stanford University School of Medicine, Lewis Mehl-Madrona is a visionary in the field of narrative medicine, and an unsung hero of the integrative health movement in the United States.

Far ahead of his time, Lewis was propagating the role of story in healing—since he graduated from Stanford in 1975 (as the School of Medicine’s youngest-ever peacetime graduate). He’s also a celebrated writer who has been keenly observing our climate of healing and medicine.

Lewis has carried a heavy clinical load of patients for more than 20 years, and knows firsthand what it means to use story with individual patients, day in and day out. And, as an American Indian from the Cherokee and Lakota tribes, he is committed to the ritual, magic, and spirituality of the Native American tradition, and layers everything he does with that perspective. In his work, he explores the role of story and community in the healing process again and again.
