Let the Guides, Gods, and Ancestors Lead Your Creative Journey - Register for the online writing program that begins on September 24!

This series of four retreats is storytellers and poets, memoirists and bloggers, novelists and seekers, dreamers and healers trying to find a project that matters.

Our Story

As we prepare for season 4, Marisa reflects on purpose and mission of KnotWork Storytelling.

In this episode:

  • A preview of this season’s guests, including Laura Murphy and Sophie Strand
  • Marisa's spiritual foundation: studies at the Sacred Center Mystery School
  • A devotion to mythology that goes beyond costume drama 
  • An ancestor who refused to be called by “an Irish maid’s name” and what that says about the legacy of shame in the Irish diaspora

Our Music

Music at the start of the show is by Beth Sweeney and Billy Hardy, a Celtic Fiddle and multi-instrumental duo based on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The traditional Irish reel we play at the start of the show is called "The College Groves."
