👋 Hi! Good to see you.
I'm thrilled to have you walking along the edge of the water, listening for Selkies song and thinking about stepping in with us.


If you're a regular storywalker, go ahead and hop skip further down the page to find out about the beating heart of this adventure. But if you're new, let's stop and chat for a minute...

If you're totally "who the heck is Jena" new to my work I recommend you start by grabbing my complimentary Welcome Package and watch the opening prompts of the Wide Awake storywalk to get the feel for how I take us down a fairy tale path.

As a general introduction, Storywalking is a unique and delightful art and inquiry process I developed that uses myths, fables and fairytales as a roadmap for epic inner journeys. A thick papered journal is our primary tool. And playful engaging art is the way we catalyze personal self reflection and document our shifts and epiphanies.

My specialty is prompts that are powerful, playful and quick, designed to hurdlejump over your inner critic and into new information. Instead of hours and hours of instructions, the daily videos are under 5 minutes: as short as a good song, so you get inspired and right to your journal.

Supplies are limited and prompts are diverse with an emphasis on collage, doodling, writing. And yes: totally accessible for all skill levels.

This particular class will be delivered over 13 weeks (with a chapter a week minus a couple rest stop weeks). Over the course of each week you will build up layers in your journal and deepen into the inquiries evoked by the story.  Best part? The questions and themes from the story will bring up information totally unique to you. Messages hand culled by your own intuition. And when we walk together, wow we can really appreciate how very different, how incredibly customized it can be for each person!

Come join us as we stand at the edge of the water and listen for our forgotten soul song...

If you take a moment to read the story through you might think "Blargh!" and "Grrr" and "Pbbbbt" (😂) Like: why is she such a weepy lame ass! And how could he do that! And then, and then, how could she leave her seven children?! It's a hard story to read without slipping into a victim story or rant on the patriarchy or great lament. But But BUT...

If we immediately hot potato drop the idea that "the fisherman is a man" and "the selkie is a woman" and


try on the idea that
the fisherman is your spirit
and the selkie is your soul


What animal/anima magic was inadvertently put down on the shore when you stepped into this incarnation? What did the spirit part of you (the actioning ordinary world self) snatch up from the rocks and try to keep as their own?  What's the slippery, probably a little bit stinky, part that is being hidden in the wall of ordinary life but needs to be returned to the vast ocean of you?


Any one of us could look back at our life - regardless of how long or short- and find "soulskin" experiences that we somehow, inexplicably, left on the shore.

What were some long gone practices or relationships that felt like remembering how to breath? That were a deep quenching when you didn't even know you were dying of thirst?

We can certainly think of some specifics now, but what I love about storywalks is that we always find surprise information when we step onto the page.


Now, I'll be straight with you and say that I don't actually know how we resolve the leaving the children. Donning the skin and diving back into the ocean seems an equal and opposite heartbreak to me. But I've walked enough Storywalks with this creative collective over the last 10 years to know that "not knowing how it will resolve" is part of the magic of the journey. Because we're going to find out together. The Muse of Synchronicity has serious surprise information for all of us.

So yeah, I'm not the one who knows all the answers in this tale, I'm just the one holding the lantern as we step onto the path together.

I do know though that what seems impossible to recover on our own is more than possible when we journey together. When we storywalk in community, another person's quote will be just clue you need. Another person's bravery will sing to you from the page and keep you going. And the characters that show up on (and off!) the page will point to the hiding place and make sure that we reclaim what is ours.

Never been in a Storywalk? Let your eyes linger on some epiphany laden moments from Puss in Boots...

The pages will show the way!

Registering for this Story Walk gives you  permanent access to Skin: The Selkie Tale as it unfolds and forever afterward. Plus you get to bring a guest of your choice!

I love when folks bring a friend from the "real world" so you can experience the journey together. Lots of buddies meet weekly (in person or on the phone) to chat about the pages over tea. Now if you don't have anyone you can invite who loves this kind of thing... you need new friends. 😂 Seriously though, you do...AND luckily you'll meet them leaning into our fantastic and supportive Storywalking community. So just hop in!

The course will be created as we go with video prompts delivered to your email. Instructions are peppy & personal and include experimenting with collage, coloring, doodling, writing.  Storywalking is doable in under a half hour a day or a couple hours a week and is perfect for all skill levels. Keep up with the playful prompts over the 13 weeks or go along at your own pace.

This style of art journaling can open the voice of the intuition in an effortless manner - bringing spontaneous epiphanies and surprising momentum. Sometimes it points to subtle shifts of perception. Sometimes it points our future into a whole new direction. Your task is simply to show up with pen, scissors, glue. The story will take care of the rest.

"I am in awe of the  journey I have just completed. I felt profoundly and tenderly held in the container of this Storywalk which facilitated breakthrough realizations and much-needed life change for me. The video questions and prompts lovingly pierced through my old stories and opened awareness to my own beautiful, authentic, life-affirming truth. And Jena's support and feedback in the community forum was very insightful, catalyzing, honoring and championing of my process. I highly recommend her work!" -Veneda

"Nothing has been more valuable to me during these recent difficult times than Jena's Storywalking processes. In them I have found the key to seeking that which is deep within my psyche through the following of the deep mystical magic of ancient stories. I must admit to being somewhat dense - under normal conditions when I read an old fairytale or myth I really don't understand how all the creatures in the story represent different parts of my own psyche, but through the collaging and art practices led by Jena's brilliant work we are offered a simple and often whimsical key to capturing that deeper understanding of ourselves. My own Storywalking practice has become the way I begin most days after arising - it's a way for me to get in touch with the deeper parts of Self - the soul - each morning, bring me to center, and revelations and epiphanies abound. I have started to keep a journal of my walking alongside the collaging process. Nothing is more magical than going back and reading all the sound advice and revelations given to myself by my Self through this magical practice. I cannot recommend this practice highly enough --- if you are interested in contacting your deep inner being in an artistic way, do a Storywalk! I have become an addict." -Squidge

"Jenafer Joy’s Approach is by far the lightest and the deepest method I have experienced. She leads gently but firmly, engaging even my grumpiest parts in the game. A rare gift! Solo divers are welcome and secure a safe space of private witnessing with her gentle, witty guidance. But she also maintains group energy incredibly well, strengthening synergies and supporting each one of us as if we were truly unique to her and in the world. I have been relying on Jenafer for my own balance for quite some time now, and she keeps surprising me, with her creativity, with her amazing cultural, spiritual & psychological information, and also with her true generosity of spirit." - Anna

It would be ridiculous to finish this invitation without underlining the absolutely phenomenal Merry Band of Storywalkers.

While you can certainly follow the videos and have a fantastic journey on your own, live classes have a true boon of community. 

Like the underground mycelial network of mushrooms, the folks who lean into themselves while also supporting each other in these journeys is beyond powerful. 

We love all our seasoned storywalkers and it's so true that those who step onto the path choose to walk again and again! Come be a part of it.
