"My resources are considerable..."  T'Challa - Black Panther

Tools, exercises, practices and lessons for my workshops come from life experience as well as from inspiration from various resources. The following is a list of resources that I have drawn from as inspiration after using the tools to deeply improve my own life, well-being, and personal development. My workshops re-imagine, apply and relate these tools within the context of superhero pop culture to help myself and others unleash the superhero within.

Step Out of Your Story: Writing Exercises to Reform and Transform Your Life

A great resource for the art of Narrative Therapy, which is essentially shifting the narrative of how we view and perceive ourselves and our own story. Viewing ourselves as the hero of our story rather than as a victim, which empowers heroic action and a growth mentality. Superheroes are essentially about the heroes journey in different forms, and this resource is something I use to help provide some guides for how to help others create their own heroic story in the same way, creating shifts and positive transformations in personal development
