The Heroes Journey: Find your voice. Tell your story.

The Heroes Journey is dedicated to empowering service personnel, their families, and the families of the fallen by enabling them to discover their voice and share their narrative through purposeful storytelling.

Our Mission

The Heroes Journey helps our nation’s defenders and their families, and families of the fallen find their voice and tell their story. Warriors learn that sharing their stories, even the ones they don’t want to tell themselves, can heal, can reconnect, and can validate their service. By sharing their scars, they help our country bridge the defender-civilian gap that grows wider every day.

why is storytelling important?

Storytelling is how you…

Heal

Telling your story will help you take your trauma and use it to heal your mind and quiet your soul.

Inform

Telling your story will capture your leadership wisdom and turn it into a narrative that helps civilians make sense of their own struggles.

Reconnect

Telling your story will help bridge the warrior-civilian gap and create a shared perspective throughout your community and country.

“I was referred to The Heroes Journey Generosity of Scars through a friend, a three time purple heart recipient. I spent 40 months in Iraq and Afghanistan and have spent nearly 9 years trying to put all those experiences into proper perspective – the guilt, pain, and sadness. In a matter of hours with you all, I feel at peace, like not just the way people say those words, but actually experiencing a sense of calm.”

– Clay Jensen, Warrior Storytelling Workshop Participant

The coaches helped me find power in my story that I did not know existed. This newfound power inspired others in the workshop and will continue to fuel me onwards and upwards.

-Tony Nevada, Actor in “Last Out” and Storytelling Coach
