In this new course, Dan Millman and Sierra Prasada connect you with your inner storyteller. Whether you’re a writer, artist, or innovator, you’ll find greater creative and personal fulfillment thanks to their groundbreaking approach.

Dan and Sierra offer guidance and encouragement to help you push through common blocks to writing or any form of creativity. They demystify the process without dispelling the magic. The hard-won truths they articulate, and the innovative exercises they present, will light your way and enrich your practice.
