“What’s Your Story?”

Junie Swadron is an author, psychotherapist, international speaker, workshop facilitator, and professional writing coach who has spent the last twenty-five years guiding thousands of students in writing and sharing their life stories.

Junie sees the therapeutic process and the creative process as one. It is about accessing a special place within us where serenity, love, courage, and truth reside. It is from this place where we begin to know our true spirit. It is from this place we begin to heal.

What makes Junie an extraordinary healer is that she knows “both sides of the couch.” She was diagnosed with manic-depressive illness at age twenty and has lived with its challenges for more than thirty years. Her personal experiences have taught her resiliency and coping strategies for choosing health and wellness again and again. Junie has the natural gift of feeling another’s joy and pain inside of her own body. She has always shown sincere interest and listens with reverence when people share their sacred stories with her. She considers it an honor and a privilege.

In this conversation, Junie Swadron and Lynn Thompson talk about the current condition of the world in connection with Junie’s most recent book, Your Life Matters, 8 Simple Steps to Writing Your Story. Junie’s printed book is available from her prior to the November release by Morgan James Publishing and is available free of charge as a digital download. Send Junie an email junieswadron@gmail.com with a request for either form of Your Life Matters.

Junie is known for helping people honor the journeys they have walked, the unique paths that have led them to who they are today. She is fascinated by the stories that make up a person’s life. And even though you’ve never met, she is sincere when she asks, “What’s your story?”
