What this masterclass is....

A six-week journey with Jennifer as your travel guide, through your family's history, their WWII story, and your own story. On this journey you will read a life-changing book.

Together with a core group of people, we will discuss issues and emotions around the themes of war, religion, spirituality, family, stories, trauma, inherited trauma, caregiver issues, secrets, shame, guilt, PTSD, and many other topics that come from the book, my questions, and your experiences.

You will explore your family’s history and dive into who you are with this knowledge. You will even begin to write your own stories.

We will use the book "Reconciliation with War" by Janelle Kaye and Charles Willshire as a foundation to transformation.

You are required to purchase the book. Details are in the confirmation email you receive upon registration.

I ask for your honest feedback throughout the course. I also ask for a testimonial for my website and future courses.

Masterclass Access

The masterclass is designed to help you focus on the journey through your family and military history as well as your own story. Each week requires you to read just under 100 pages and do homework before the webinar discussion. I created this format to give you a sense of urgency and help you focus on our targets. I will help you find answers, closure, and heal the past as you explore your history and write the stories.

The Welcome Area and Community open 9 April 2019. You will be able to complete the assessment in the welcome area and introduce yourself in the community.

Your first assignment is released 15 April 2019. The first live facilitation webinar is 22 April 2019. The final facilitation webinar is 20 May.
