Your Hero's Journey: Storytelling to Improve Mental and Physical Health

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We all deserve to be fit and healthy, physically and emotionally. But when we feel depressed, anxious, or left behind by the traditional health and fitness industry, how can we begin to care for ourselves? Stories have been powerful aids for mental well-being throughout history, and physical and mental fitness programs that embrace storytelling as a motivating tool are just beginning to make an impact. Panelists Satine Phoenix (The Gilding Light), Sam de Leve (Callisto 6), Todd Stashwick (12 Monkeys), Edward Doty (Jukin Media), Christy Black (Hero's Journey Fitness), and Dr. Andrea Letamendi (The Arkham Sessions, UCLA) host a discussion of how storytelling, role-playing games, and the books, TV, movies, and comics we love can make a positive impact on our overall health. Moderated by David Nett (Starter Kit).
