transformation and healing
through writing our personal stories
Spirit of Story is a creative space for people to discover and write their personal, life-based stories. Founded in 2009 by Karin Gutman, it began with the first ‘Unlocking Your Story’ workshop in Santa Monica, California and has since expanded to include other workshops, e-courses, private story coaching, and monthly “Story Notes” that keep storytellers connected with the global community of storytelling and the art of personal narrative, aka memoir writing.
Karin’s process-oriented approach guides both fresh and seasoned voices in putting their stories on the page. The safe, dynamic spaces she creates allow for this deeply personal work to unfold, as writers peel away the layers, dig deep, and make meaning out of their life experiences. Her private coaching clients and students have had books published by major publishers, including HarperCollins, Hay House and St. Martin's Press.
