Storytelling for the Healing Practitioner
Growing Your Practice Naturally through the Power of Story
A workshop with Margaret Rode
sponsored by the Healing Touch Professional Association
And thank heavens for that.
Like many people who work from the heart, I love my work and want to support and nourish more people, but find the concept of “marketing” artificial and uncomfortable. Add in the sales tricks and sales funnels and not-quite-honest tactics, and you get something that can run completely counter to the way people like you and I want to be in the world.
The good news?
More and more, people are using their gifts of discernment to choose on behalf of their values and what ‘feels’ right. They’re making the decision to work with a business or a practitioner not because they’re the “best,” or the sparkliest, loudest, or cheapest. Instead, they choose based on whether you genuinely see them, get them, and care what happens to them.
And that’s where story comes in…
…is to show you how adopting a story mentality—listening, gathering, and sharing— can help attract exactly the people you most want to help, without the ick factor.
In it, you’ll learn:
Week 1: An on-demand video introduction to using storytelling to promote our work, with tools, strategies, and live examples. You’ll receive the companion Storytelling for the Healing Practitioner workbook
Week 2: In this work week, you will explore the companion workbook full of prompts and exercises to begin articulating your stories. You can email your questions to me privately during this week and I’ll be happy to help!
Week 3: A live workshop and Q&A session that discusses:
I’m Margaret Rode, and for more than 20 years I’ve been a consultant, coach, and tech sherpa serving thoughtful solo practitioners, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and nonprofits. I’m also the author of the book Storytelling for Small Business: Creating and Growing an Authentic Business Through the Power of Story.
I offer these courses for a very selfish reason: I fell in love with storytelling after it completely transformed my own business. The freedom from shady/impersonal marketing relaxes me and allows me to serve more people, work with compassion, and grow my work in beautiful, human ways. If I can help even one other person do this happy dance with me, I consider that an awesome day.
For an affordable price, you’ll learn how to use the power of storytelling to reshape your marketing and your client outreach to be even more human, genuine, and effective…and just feel better in your body (and energy body).
