Divine Your Story & The Art of Self-Branding Workshop

  • Primary Penn Station - Cellar/Studio 251 West 30th Street New York, NY, 10001 United States (map)

Founded by Eli Walker, Divine Your Story™ integrates the art of storytelling and yoga to empower individuals to create a joyful life. Utilizing monologuing and mindfulness techniques, DYS strives to inspire students to think more expansively about their personal narratives by providing tools to deconstruct stories that lead to suffering. Then, from a place of pure potential, capacitates them to re-write their life story in the direction of joy, equipped with a sense of conscious authorship.

Each participant will leave this workshop feeling empowered with new techniques to rethink the negative "truths" they tell themselves about their life circumstances, and a method to "rewrite" those stories in more joyful directions as the author of their own life stories. Visit and for more information.

Additionally, they'll leave with more definition/clarity on their personal values in their life and how that translates to their brand and entrepreneurial endeavors, and practical skills on how to market their ideals to increase brand awareness and integrity for their companies or projects.

Expanding on the Divine Your Story personal empowerment and “conscious authorship” theme, Lena Koropey, Etiquette Expert, and Founder of Gramercy Protocol, will guide participants through a one-hour strategic personal branding session to help participants be their best and effectively communicate who they are and what they are contributing to the world.
