HEALING STORY ALLIANCE (HSA) “explores and promotes the use of storytelling in healing. Our goal as a special interest group of the National Storytelling Network (NSN) is to build a resource for the use of story in the healing arts and professions.

“We share experiences and skills to increase our own knowledge of stories and how best to use them to inform, nurture, inspire and heal, both organizations and individuals. We strive to reach beyond our storytelling community to engage all those in other service professions who can see the benefit of story as a vehicle for healing.”

Find “guidance and practical applications for storytelling, revealing and reflecting the many facets of healing story in the world today and in the past” on their website.  Thanks to our fave world-class storyteller, Naomi Baltuck (Writing Between the Lines, Life from a Writer’s POV and The BeZine).
