CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Once Upon a Trauma is here to help you turn your socially isolating suffering, or singular life experience, into communal connective power. The workshop provides a secure and supportive environment for you to learn, try, fail, grow and try again without fear of shame or rejection. The process empowers you to transform your existentially isolating pain into connective communal power.

Both Nigel and Zach who helped develop the concept, had suffered the pain of loss and loneliness. They both also had unique life experiences that they felt the world would benefit from hearing...yet for years, they both struggled to communicate the pain and experience to others - without making them cringe or cause their eyes to glaze over. They say, even when they would try their very best to express their messages powerfully into other people’s minds and hearts, it always seemed like the meaning would get lost along the way. They learned the ancient craft of storytelling and it’s modern superpower to transform socially isolating pain into connective communal power.
