Stories In Motion
It Starts with a Desire, an Impulse, a Step...
Our world, our lives, are made of stories. Stories shape, stir, touch and transform us. Stories gather us, help us make meaning and root into the soil of our existence. Stories unearth worlds and weave the interior and exterior, self and society, past to future. Stories give voice to the unseen, unsure, secret. Stories limit and liberate. Stories create resonance. What's your story?
As you set your Soul in Motion, you find the vital words, vision and way.

Do you have a story to tell, a book to write, a photographic project you'd like to do? Do you have to present and give public talks? Are you creatively stuck? Is your life's work knocking on your door, and you want to run away? Do you long to express yourself with more depth, sensitivity and honesty? Are you searching for the red thread in your work and purpose? Do you need to see your business in new ways?
I offer story consulting, speaking & workshops
to private and professional clients.
Storytelling & Speaking - for writers, photographers, creatives, professionals, schools and companies, and anyone interested in creating (visual) stories that touch, inspire, transform, and call us to action.
Your personal narrative - for those drawn the transformational power of biographical story work, and seek to distill 'the red thread' in your life, re-author your story, find your authentic voice, make the invisible visible, and express inner truth. We work with your embodied expression and inner knowing.
Stories in motion - what about our collection story? What, when our stories fall away? Salons and workshops about the emerging stories that are arising from the rubble of our chaotic, rapidly changing world and lives. What stories do we want to shape our future. What stories can we let go of. What happens when we meet in story-less space and begin to listen deeper? (more info soon).
Story Doctoring, Re-authoring, Creative Rites
As a writer, photographer, speaker and producer I have told stories and communicated ideas for many years in words, visuals, moving images, and speaking. Whether a story, a film, a talk, they all can take us on a journey of transformation and revelation, and as such, the creative process behind the making off your work, is a rite of passage in its own right.
I will introduce you to the (relationship between) the core elements of story structure, techniques, hone in on the core conflict, point of view, characters etc. With my extensive experience with the nuts and bolts of the creative process (and procrastination), I can help you with story clarity, dramatic effect, emotional truth and tapping into your own creative unconscious and intuition. I support you with your natural voice, get solid in your own creative process and rhythm, and how you can allow the work to work (in) you and reveal itself.
We can unravel creative knots, discover the red thread of your project or purpose, discover the right point of view and thematic thread throughout, with an eye to useful metaphors and the transformational arch. I believe any creative project has an inherent logic or intelligens within, that determined its 'perfect' form. We go searching for this precious alignment, inside and out.
I know, the creative process calls on all you've got, intellectually, psychologically, spiritually, practically, but I also know, it has tremendous power to heal, transform and empower you and your community.
This is how we work together.
Intense deep-dives is my special competence and it's a joy for me to offer my presence and skills. You get all of me, and more. Whether you are at the beginning of a project or struggling with the completion, I'm will step in, as your liaison, muse and support, and create a safe container for magic to happen.
I also come with practical project experience and tools from a variety of areas such as organisational and community development, education and entrepreneurship, film, digital storytelling, photography, book writing and production, PR and personal leadership coaching.
Should you need it, I also offer hands-on project consulting and content creation.
Depending on your project or situation, there's different ways we can work:
Hourly basis, 3 hour intensives, 3 day deep-dive retreat, or 3 months committed program.
The work will be a mix of life-philosophical conversations, story tools talks, reading your stuff, feedback, exercises, teaching, brainstorming, mapping, movement, to tap into inner viewing and writing from the body. I ask for your full dedication, courage to be seen and heard, and willingness to follow through. Only serious inquires please.
Based upon your needs, dreams and goals, I customize your session / program accordingly.
For in-person work, this a beautiful reason to plan a retreat with me, either in Europe or the U.S. Otherwise phone, skype and email works just fine.
Action creates results. Lets get you going, untangled, liberated and to the finishing storyline.

"...while Lone’s public accolades in the use of the camera as a mirror to the soul are well known, she is exceptionally capable of allowing her presence to hold the gentle space in which the true exposure of essential beauty and challenges can be examined. While I have yet to be seen through Lone’s camera lens, I have been richly blessed by her re-imagining of my being – a state far more naked than merely being devoid of clothes. Lone’s stark black and white images bely her true genius – the elucidation of the subtle tones of life’s grays! – Dr. David Martin, Founder of M•CAM, Inc., Breathing Enterprise + the award-winning film Future Dreaming.
"With her words and eyes, Lone creates worlds we all want to live in and calls upon our inner adventurer to embrace life in all its wondrous nuances and paradoxes. She dares us to become the heros and heroines of our own lives. To free ourselves from the stories and molds that holds us hostage and unable to live, love, create and express ourselves, freely, authentically. Through art, truth and love, she has the ability to see and translate the hope of a more beautiful world – for you, for all of us – to something tangible, visible, worthy." –Kristine Skjoldborg Stammer
