Your companion through challenging times.

Grow consciously through whatever life may bring and turn your greatest challenge into your greatest gift.

Created by Dr. Stacy Thomas


Inspired by people like you

The GROWING FORWARD journal was inspired by people just like you. People faced with a significant life challenge, who are stronger than they realize and have a tremendous capacity to adapt.

They, like you, could not fully appreciate their strength because they were so focused on the struggle. But trust me, as a witness to thousands of journeys through significant challenges, the resilience of the human spirit is tremendous. I see it all the time, and it never ceases to amaze and astound me.

All that I have seen and learned as a result of decades of clinical practice and the research on post traumatic growth has led me to understand one important and simple truth:

This life is for us.

The Growing Forward Soul School Program

The Growing Forward Soul School was created to support your ability to build resilience and grow consciously through anything.

Growing as a Community

The Growing Forward Community

The Growing Forward Community is where it all happens. This is a safe space where fellow seekers can come together to share their insights and support each other in their growth. It is a space where members will not only be encouraged to connect with Dr. Stacy but also with each other.

Members of the community will have the opportunity to join Dr. Stacy live twice/week during her early morning writing practice via a live conference call.

The community is also the place where Dr. Stacy will host a special video series that enables members to ask questions and each week, Dr. Stacy will answer a question relating to the challenges we all face growing forward. Dr. Stacy will also invite special guests and leaders in mental health from around the world to share their insights and journeys into building their lives and overcoming their biggest life challenges.

About the Growing Forward Through Writing Workshops

THIS is the experience that will take your expressive writing practice to the next level.  When you join with other humans in an atmosphere of total acceptance and compassion and then share whatever comes through…the impact is magnified by 1000%. Prepare to be uplifted and shifted.  

I know that as a result of this workshop, you will:

  • Have a greater appreciation for your own wisdom
  • Feel more confident in listening to your own voice to help guide your decisions
  • Be able to speak your truth more easily with others
  • Come away with a major “ah ha!”
  • Become addicted to this practice 

I am so excited for you to join me and your fellow beautiful humans to experience what I know is the most effective way to accelerate your growth.
