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 classes and workshops are a collaborative model that allows participants to take better control of their lives in ways that are culturally relevant to them. We believe the most powerful resources in our communities are its people. We are holistic in our approach: arts, poetry, science, nutrition, yoga, Qi Gong, and guided memoir. We have a selection 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 continue to look through the site.
