Episode 100: Janelle Hardy on stories and somatic healing in the creative process

In today’s episode we talk to Janelle Hardy, who is a writer, artist, host of the Personal Mythmaking Podcast. She is also the creator/teacher of a memoir-writing course called The Art of Personal Mythmaking. This process uses body-based trauma-informed writing prompts, fairytales and themed modules to support creative folks who are interested in healing from their life stories as they write their memoirs.

Her work combines her BA in Anthropology with her MA in Dance, plus her Diploma in Structural Integration. She has been working as a trauma-informed bodyworker and as an artist for many years, and she’s taught adults these important skills out of her living room, arts centers, universities and community colleges.

You’ll hear all of that experience and her unique wisdom in this conversation, but definitely check out her podcast and her website.

We loved talking to Janelle about the work she’s done, how to get out of your head and change your responses using myth and story as well as somatic or body-based healing techniques. Working in this way is rare and transformative.
