"God Created Man Because S/he Loves Stories." – Elie Wiesel
The world is in a kerfuffle (I love that word), this project has emerged through my heart from the heavens to help soothe your suffering.
If you are here on this page, you are ready to claim the wisdom it can activate for you...
We are living in really unusual times... way beyond ordinary. Almost like a science fiction/horror film you would immediately turn the channel away from to avoid the heebie-jeebie parts; it’s so frightening. There is so much fear on our planet.
They say love and wisdom dissolve the power of fear and trauma. Sounds good… how do we get there?
Where is the wisdom stashed in these times of chaos? It appears to be hidden—I sincerely believe it lives inside YOU.
To soothe and calm us down, I’m proud to say this course is the medicine for just that. It is my way of showing you how to facilitate a safe space inside your psyche.
After 45+ years of working as a psychotherapist, I can confidently tell you that philosophy simply does not work. We have to address the pain body. Especially right now, during these times.
In this class, you tell your story to clean it up and address the pain body through the lens of each of the 4 elements, and then here comes your soul reminding you of your witness, your Observer, your calm voice... and the healing begins.
Tell us your story, then turn on your Observer and find access to the part of you that remembers what you were supposed to learn.
You will remember the lessons that you were assigned.
You will access your own voice.
And voila—the magic appears! It’s always been there. You just need community, good questions, listening skills and a guide.
See you inside,
Discover the power of TMAS with these stories...
Who Is ThisTherapeuticClass For?
Whether you are new to our community or you have been through any part of our Applied Astrology School, this therapeutic writing course is a necessary part of the healing journey and different then any other course we offer.
It's a particularly valuable process if you are looking to deepen your self-healing journey while building your listening skillset for the betterment of all your relationships -- especially if you work with others or want to be a facilitator, teacher or an Astrologer.
TMAS guides us speak, write, and hear your narrative as it is. Say it out loud. Then, with helpful guidance from a trained mentor (me or one of my amazing TMAS facilitators), you can find your wisdom and power. Honestly, it’s just a thought away.
We have to catch the never-ending culprit: your gremlin, your saboteur, your negative mind robbing you of your personal power. We are born with a design fault—it's the human condition. We automatically revert to insecurity...at least most of us do, without even knowing it.
"I am not wise..." "I am not safe..." "I am not good at most things..." "I’m not lovable..."
...says every human ego. The ego operating system has a self-esteem issue built in right at the start.
Upgrade your operating system by joining us in this intimate online therapeutic experience, with a community that will assist you in accessing the voice of your higher self.
Where everyone gets to access their soul, with a pen in hand, an open mind, and a friend standing by!
Learn how to answer the questions that spark a new way of being and free you from the stories of the past...
What is my story?
What is the broken record that I can't turn off?
How can I re-frame that story from the soul's point of view?
The 4 Elements carry the wisdom we are all waiting for and...
The voice of your wisdom is waiting in the wings.

The Class Breakdown
There is NO Astrology in this course. It is just based on your story and my proven psychological model of the elements, applied to where you are right now. In this class you do NOT have to be a writer, and you do NOT have to feel suddenly courageous about sharing your story. TMAS is cultivated to create intimacy, safety and healing, which leads to you suddenly feeling very easy and safe.
We'll start with the basics and work our way into an evolving progression allowing you to tell your story from the dark to the light, unearthing the wisdom within you...
MODULE 1: What We Left Behind Your emotional body (Water) is waiting to be felt:In this module you'll deep dive into your story. Before we can heal it, we have to hear it. No filter, no edits, just the truth.
MODULE 2: Air Conditioning Your mind (Air) wants nothing more than to change the story and start again: After you've told your story the patterns become obvious the patterns become obvious. Everyone has a broken record in their psyche, to heal, you become aware before you change it.
MODULE 3: When The Tires Hit The Road Your Earth self needs purpose: The right questions posed, in the right setting and your higher self will emerge. There is wisdom waiting in the wings. But first you have to acknowledge what you have been through.
MODULE 4: Transformation City Your passion and fun (Fire) is dying to come back to life:Transformation always stands next to our ability to let go without judgement. This class will activate your fire and the ability to burn what no longer serves you.
"Tell Me a Story was more powerful than I could even imagine… this is truly a transformation tool. The secret is in the simplicity of the subjects and that it's so easy to join the process... You just have to show up for class to get to reap the benefits in the end. Love love love it.” -TMAS Participant
"I loved it!! It took me to my edge with writing and I want more. I was excited to join every class and listen to others as well as share. We really do learn about ourselves through other peoples stories as much as by telling our own. It was raw, real, vulnerable, creative and fun!!! I am more confident in sharing my story and am inspired to write more!!"
"It was so right on time in my life, I had been wanting to cultivate a writing practice. I needed the class to focus, to really spend time on some of the elements, and see the stories behind them that were still having an influence on my current situation in life. There was growth and healing that occurred by really taking the time to listen to each one and let them have a voice."

"The support from Debra and the group was great. Everyone was so kind, which is what I needed to be able to share as much as I did. The benefit I got out of it was time to focus on the positive, which helped me delve deep into the practice of being the observer and loving myself as I am." -TMAS Participant
