This workshop is open to TAPS Young Adults (ages 18 to 30).

Storytelling is how we heal, how we validate, how we inform, and how we connect. Our warrior storytellers use purposeful storytelling to achieve relevance in life and business. Story is how we influence!

The Generosity of Scars storytelling workshop brings veterans and/or military family members together to connect and to share their scars and experiences with each other through the power of story. Stories give us a sense of ourselves through resolution and healing. The deepest scars from your past can be re-purposed into narratives to help you transcend your struggles and provide meaning and purpose in your life.

Under the supervision of board certified mental health professionals and veteran storytelling coaches, young adults will learn how to take their trauma and shape it into powerful healing stories, which will allow them to communicate more effectively with their families and communities, and finally find their voice and tell their stories after so many years of remaining silent.

Learn more on The Heroes Journey website.
