Program Description

Chances are your life includes a few chapters where you’ve embarked on one or another approach to self-exploration – spiritual practice, therapy, self-help books or gurus. But have you tried getting to know yourself by writing your memoir? Brenda Peterson has, and in the process she’s discovered a powerful tool for uncovering elements of your psyche that may have eluded every other attempt at self examination. It forces you to see your life from an entirely different perspective. She explains, “Many people, because they need to survive, and need to achieve, are very perceptive about the world. But whether or not they know themselves – that’s the question. And in memoir you’re the main character, and the plot is the evolution of soul, or self. So you have to show up on the page. You can’t just be watching everybody around you. You have to turn that eye back on yourself.” Ms. Peterson freely shares the often startling personal discoveries she made along the way, and will inspire you to explore the untold story of you – and the inner hero, heroine, angel, or villain you have yet to meet. (Hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
