#019 Christel speaks with Laura Lentz, an international respected author, creative coach and writing teacher living on Kauai. She is the co-founder of the Literati Academy and the StoryQuest community. She speaks about 'Syncreation': the magic that happens when writing together in a group: How writers become in synch with each other when writing together.
"Deep listening is a practice," Laura says, something we don't learn in school. It is about how to respectfully listen to another person and holding the space for the truth in it.
Laura reveals: Story is going to save the world. In these intense times, story is how we are able to perceive each other's differences, it gives us a bridge to understanding each other.
Laura's new book Story Quest is a workbook about the Hero's journey. It is for writers to understand the writers personal journey inside of the collective journey. Laura discusses how the hero's journey shows up in our lives and in literature.
