Transform Pain Into Creative Expression

The Journey To Become The Insider

The Outsider faces the task of finding their tribe, and feel true to themselves within their group.

The next step in becoming the version of you, you want to be, not what others want, begins with The Love Story. The Love Story community is rooted in “Turning Pain Into Purpose”, and having each experienced our unique hurdles in our lives we understand the strength it takes just to be here taking steps in the right direction.

Why choose Expressive Writing? Expressive writing has a multitude of benefits to all aspects of our lives. Writing about traumatic, stressful, or emotional events has been scientifically proven to improve both physical and psychological health. Journal keeping can also improve your self-confidence, communication skills, emotional intelligence, produce self awareness, as well as validate your experience and spark creativity. Learn More

Why choose The Love Story? Through Artist-inspired group workshops our goal is to address the source of our pain and shine light on it. There is no expectation to use your real name or share anything you don’t wish to.

We currently provide Program Services in Four ways:

  • DIY (Do-it-Yourself) Journaling—through our free expressive writing portal at www.thelovestory.org, begin making the unconscious conscious through Shadow Work. Directions & Resources are provided.
  • Journal Together—Our Peer-to-Peer Mirror Darkly Sessions are structured group journaling sessions facilitated by a trained professional Journal-artist host via Zoom.
  • Journal alongside Artist Performances—The Break Your Heart Open Live Stream Series are an opportunity for people to journal together inspired by Live Artist Performances, with an opportunity to share one’s journal entry through candlelight open mic sharing and resonating.
  • Journal to Pursue Purpose—The Love Story Playbook Program is designed to arc our story from a tragedy into a divine comedy in seven acts, told in fiction, based on a true story. We believe to tell our story is to transform our story. In the process of telling our stories as both an art and craft, we will discover the duality of our desire, design, and destiny, and be inspired and disciplined in choosing the path of our true desire, design, and destiny.
