We all have stories we tell ourselves, personal narratives that define who we are. These stories take root in our subconscious and limit us, like a shadow holding us back from our full potential. But words and storytelling also have the power to free ourselves from these shadows and to profoundly transform our lives.
Storytelling Alchemy provides tools and exercises designed to help you change your relationship to your personal stories in a way that is empowering and transformative. Included here are:
Journaling and creative writing exercises
Prompts for reflection and self-examination
Tips on dream analysis
Simple spells and enchantments for insight, transformation, and lasting change
“Grab your sword and your shield, or rather a gorgeous pen and a journal that speaks to you because Storytelling Alchemy: Write Your Own Happy Ending by Renëe Damoiselle is a beautiful, engaging, and fulfilling book that seeks to train men and women to fight their own battles where it counts—in their memories. It is empowering, the storytelling appealing and attainable. You can’t wait to see what you’ll write!” –Amy Blackthorn, author of Blackthorn’s Botanical Magic
“Renée Damoiselle has not just created a tool kit for the would-be storyteller but turned it into a system of spiritual and magical transformation. Storytelling Alchemy is a must for anyone who wishes to follow the path of the storyteller, but also wants to take it just that little bit further.” –Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone, authors of A Witches Bible, The Witches’ Goddess, The Inner Mysteries, and Lifting the Veil
“Our brains process information through stories, but what our conscious mind often forgets is that we can create these stories. Renée Damoiselle’s Storytelling Alchemy reminds us of that and helps us make these tales magickally work for us.” –Lilith Dorsey, author of Love Magic and Voodoo and Afro-Caribbean Paganism
“It has long been known by the wise that we are made up of stories, as much as we are of atoms. No doubt, you’ve been in the presence of a great storyteller that had held you rapt within a tale seemingly more real than the room you sat in. There is a storyteller more powerful than the best you’ve heard, and they are always with you. It is the voice of your mind, your soul, that shapes the flow of meaning in your life. Storytelling Alchemy: Write Your Own Happy Ending teaches you how to become awake, aware, and capable of using this magick that is always present within you.” –Ivo Dominguez, Jr., author of Keys to Perception: A Practical Guide to Psychic Development
