EP108: Awaken Your True Storyteller’s Voice with Tanya Taylor Rubinstein

Are you feeling stuck in your writing journey and lacking new ideas for crafting stories?

Try drawing from your lived experiences! Author and storyteller Tanya Taylor Rubinstein believes that to become an embodied writer, you must holistically retrieve your unique voice. She shares her valuable expertise on the profound depth of somatic writing, the transformation of ancestral trauma into narratives, and the enduring power of storytelling across cultures.

Heal, enlighten, and create lasting change in this world through your own voice!

Tune in to this new episode of The Conscious Marketer podcast — Awaken Your True Storyteller’s Voice with Tanya Taylor Rubinstein.


Key points covered in this episode:

00:00:00 Introduction

00:01:44 Tell stories from your lived experience. Use personal storytelling to heal and address intergenerational trauma. Access and express your lived experience through somatic writing.

00:08:46 Storytelling is all about belonging. We all have an intractable knot—the thing that we want the most. Create a space of belonging where everyone has the right to belong without enabling violence or retribution.

00:15:07 The stories of marginalized people are more powerful. Psychologists, coaches, and healers, with their own personal stories, are the most important in this field. Seek ways to help women, non-binary people, and queer people share their stories and get into leadership roles, since there aren’t enough women in leadership roles in the somatic world. 

00:17:51 Don’t work from the head but from the body.  Combine somatic practices with literary writing to create a deep and intimate storytelling experience. Work with the spirit through the body, specifically the gut, as it represents resilience and offers a different perspective. The process may be simple, but it took many lifetimes to be discovered.

00:31:19 Stories are our true inheritance. Our stories hold the power to shape the future. The only thing that people care about when faced with mortality is for their stories to be heard and remembered. Storytellers have the ability to influence the direction of the future, just as our ancestors did in ancient times. 

00:33:30 Find your sense of belonging through your ancestral heritage. 

By reconnecting with our ancestors, we can tap into our true power and find a sense of belonging. Creative possibilities arise when we have access to multi-generational perspectives and the support of our ancestral community. When we honor the past, we honor the future.

Tanya Taylor Rubinstein developed somatic writing as a way for her students to become embodied writers. By holistically retrieving voice, untethering power, and writing stories, they are able to experience a profound personal connection to their work. By writing and publishing their memoirs and performing their solo shows, they become positioned as leaders to evolve the culture. The somatic writing process and practice are the thirty-year synthesis of her work as a narrative-based master teacher. She has worked with well over a thousand people over the last twenty-one years to write memoirs, monologues, and solo shows.
