If you’re hurting and you don’t know how to start feeling better, inviting your body into a writing process is a powerful path towards healing.

That’s why I’ve put together a PDF of 10 gentle, effective, body-based techniques for working through the painful and difficult parts of your life.

You want to embrace your life instead of shutting down, you want to be able to face your past and stop side-stepping the painful parts of your life, you want to be able to explore the painful parts without heart palpitations, sweaty palms, a spinning mind, and a shaking body.

You want to be able to step out of this fight/flight/freeze state that your nervous system is stuck in.

Getting familiar with your body and your nervous system’s responses to difficult life experiences (these can be ‘small’ traumas like ongoing stress, name-calling, shock, unrelenting city noises and being a sensitive person as well as big traumas like car accidents, violence, and abuse) helps to shift those responses.

The tips in this PDF are straightforward, easy-to-implement and powerful (yet gentle) techniques for self-regulation, so you can finally do your writing and healing with more ease and less overwhelm.,

Janelle Hardy

Hi there!

My name is Janelle and I help people like you write their memoirs, reclaim their lives and reconnect with their bodies so they can feel at ease with their lives and their stories.

A few years ago I was frustrated and pent-up, overwhelmed with a desire to write, create and heal, but locked up so tightly in my body and heart that any little thing would tip me into overwhelm and despair.

This uncomfortable state remained until I started reclaiming my stories and tuning into my body.

Amazingly, my creativity unblocked, my writing flourished, my nerves relaxed and my healing path laid itself out before me with the support of my wise and ever-present body.

Now I feel transformed. I’m connected to my creative process and the guidance of my body. I feel at ease in the world, owning my lifestories, telling them, and celebrating them.

I can’t wait to help you feel this way too!
