Educating the Individual, the family and community.
Where the personal story can be safely explored and expressed.
Ashlar Center for Narrative Arts is an arts driven non-profit organization designed to serve the Personal Story, memoir, autobiography and trauma story. We provide education and services to individuals, families and communities. Our work empowers people to take care of themselves and each other – our workshops and trainings provide the means for the participants to take over. We believe the most powerful resources in our communities are its people. We have special programs for: combat veterans, Native American people, refugees, inner city people or those who have been severely stressed by medical events. We are holistic in our approach: arts, poetry, science, nutrition, yoga, Qi Gong, fitness and guided memoir. We have a choice of self-care processes that foster resilience. Our goal is to nurture relationship, community involvement, well-being and teach lay people to be educators and Narrative Arts Facilitators. Take one of our courses and become a greater community resource. Stay tuned and cruise this site.
