Valley Beit Midrash - The Healing Power of Storytelling

Thursday, January 11, 2024 1 Sh'vat 5784

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM


Stories have the power to entertain, inform, enlighten, and motivate. They also have the power to heal, and this will be the focus of this hour-long zoom workshop with Maggid Jim Brulé.

Maggid Brulé will weave together traditional Jewish stories from a variety of cultures, interspersed with reflections on the reasons that stories affect us so deeply and opportunities for discussion and dialogue.

Be prepared for an hour that is sure to be engaging, entertaining, informative – and healing.


Jim Brulé is a maggid – a transformational storyteller, teacher, and mentor with a very diverse background: he has advanced degrees in clinical psychology and artificial intelligence. His online school – Transformational Storytelling – trains spiritual storytellers from multiple traditions to tell stories that inspire healing and spiritual growth.

As a death doula, he works with families, individuals, and caregivers. He is a member of NEDA – the National End-of-Life Doula Alliance – where he has achieved the EOL Doula Proficiency badge, and has a subsequent certification as a death doula from The Dying Year. 

Finally, he is also an interfaith chaplain in hospital, prison, and jail settings, and a storytelling healer at an “Omega Home” – a last home for the dying. Jim also works with organizations and communities to promote dialogue across learned boundaries of faith, ethnicity, privilege, and class using stories.
