What is Narrative Release?

Before he founded Narrative Coaching and Integrative Development, Dr Drake was a grief counselor, crisis intervention worker, and hospital chaplain. These roles launched a forty-year quest to understand how to guide people through transitions and across thresholds. Narrative Coaching was the beginning and  introduced his research and practice to that profession.

Narrative Release™ brings together all that David has studied about healing, wholeness and post-traumatic growth. He has used everything in this program in his own life, and it was a core element in the Threshold Retreats he has run around the world. He is now ready to share his wisdom and these practices with other practitioners in this program. It will help them heal their own narratives so they can do the same for others.

This program has no pre-requisite, however we suggest you have some level of professional experience in the healing arts.

Features of the program

The Narrative Release™ Program is a unique and profound experience through which you will transform yourself and your practice. You will be Certified as a  Narrative Release Practitioner upon successfully completing this program with the founder. This nine-module program includes live webinars, powerful assignments, practical tools, personalized learning and nine modules.

We offer each session two times on the same day to accommodate our global community in all time zones. You may elect to join either or both sessions. 

Module 1 — Trace your own journey and your own narratives
Module 2 — Learn the Narrative Release™ process and how to use it
Module 3 — Explore the role of attachment theory in creating safe spaces
Module 4 — Engage personal and collective Shadows in healing wounds
Module 5 — Use alchemy to somatically work through grief and trauma
Module 6 — Work in and with client stories to release old narratives
Module 7 — Stand at thresholds to facilitate transformative moments
Module 8 — Practice the process to get a deeper sense for how it works
Module 9 — Understand the boundaries and applications of this work

In The Narrative Release™ Program, you will learn a non-clinical, yet powerful approach to support people to find more healing and wholeness in their lives, particularly in the wake of loss or trauma. This work is vital right now in this time of unrest as people search for new narratives about life, work and the planet itself. 

The program begins with retracing your own journey and narratives, provides an extensive exploration of the  theoretical grounding, and offers powerful practices you can use. It is an invitation to become a true wounded healer as Henri Nouwen called it. The program includes in-depth resources on the core theories as well as eye-opening assignments and heart-warming practices.
