A Transformational Storytelling Event To Empower You to Make a Bigger Impact with Your Story!

Be inspired by the stories of others. Discover the power your own story holds. Walk away with new tools to incorporate story into your own mission and work.

You are so good at giving praise!
You celebrate women who shine brightly,
Admire their courage from afar.
They look so confident in the spotlight,
it makes you wonder if you could ever do that.
Those women ….
Aren’t any different from you.

Their stories, their power, their strength inspires you because THEY are your mirror reflecting back at you what’s already inside of YOU!

If you are sitting there thinking: “Who am I to share my story? My story doesn’t matter. It’s boring, it’s not big enough. It can’t possibly have an impact or help someone else.”

This is just FEAR talking….. And fear only has one job: to keep you quiet, and to keep you playing small. 

Everyone has a story, especially those who think they don’t have one.
It’s scary to think you have something to say,
especially if you’ve never been heard.
The time has come for you to stop hiding your voice,
And take advantage of this opportunity that will free your soul.

‘And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.’ 

- Anais Nin 

Grab our hands and let us guide you over the fear hurdle, and show you how to Step into Your Brave.

We are cooking up something special with the announcement of our 4th Symposium Speaker. 

We accepted applications from women inside our Community, and are working behind the scenes to groom our "Rising Star" recipient for her first big stage appearance. 

As a community of women, it's important we hold space for more women to shine... and that's exactly what we intend to do when we welcome this year's Rising Star Award to the Symposium Stage!

LIGHTbeamers Big Vision:

Hi, I’m April!

I’m the founder of Lightbeamers and also the woman behind the 2nd Annual Storytelling Symposium, Step into Your Brave! 
For the past 25 years I’ve been a journalist, TV / Video producer, entrepreneur and I’ve spent most of that time helping people share their stories in a way that gets their message out into the world so it can shine a light for others. Our stories have the power to build connections, community, and clarity. Learning to share your own story is one of the most powerful gifts you could ever give to someone else! 

This is why I always say: when you share your story,  you shine a LIGHT!


But you might be saying, “But April, I don’t have a big story. My story isn’t that important. I could never stand up and share it because I wouldn’t even know where to begin.”

That’s exactly why I created this event!

I’ll show you how to dig out the story that’s hiding inside of you (I promise, you have a story!), and I’ll show you how impactful that story is. You’ll walk away feeling so free knowing your story does have a place in this world, and it can help others!!

It’s time to give yourself permission to experience the gift of authentic and empowering Storytelling, the kind that makes you feel alive, free, excited to heal and move forward on to the other side of your story! 

Now is your time… 

February 28th is a day to take YOU on a Date to the most fabulous, light-filled, exciting, inspirational event that will mark a “before and after” in your personal growth journey.

Step into Your Brave is a sacred space where you can let your guard down safely and show up exactly as you are because that’s exactly who we want and cherish. 

If you’ve NEVER experienced the impact of sharing and hearing stories told authentically and unapologetically, you’re missing out on the healing power of story.  This is your chance!

The Storytelling Symposium was fantastic. Not only did I learn more about telling my own story, I also got to see the power of storytelling through the speakers. The bonus? Meeting amazing women working on changing the world!

April, thank you for following your heart in holding this first Storytelling Symposium! The speakers you selected were outstanding - inspiring, entertaining, and so impactful in the worlds of the people they touch. I was amazed at the beautiful community of women who attended.

Taking the time to come to Storytelling Symposium was not only a great learning experience, but a great bonding experience with a community of women hungry to grow. Sharing parts of my journal in the crowd was a great example of what will happen when I do that online.
