Show me your childhood photos and I’ll show you a life that longs to be lived, truths that tug to told and stories that sigh to be seen. I teach women how to return to their authentic selves using their childhood photographs. It astounds and life-alters.
When women heard excerpts from my memoir, 'Nancy’s Truth: Memoir of an Archetypal Childhood,' on my radio show 'Fun with Phoetics' they urged me to teach them how to do what I do. I created Phoetics, (meaning: "The poetic truth in every childhood photograph.") Women swear by the greater intimacy, peace, & empowerment it creates in their relationships. I teach & guide Phoetics in workshops/private sessions througout the country.

Nancy Lee Segal is Female Territory.
Vast, fluid, deep, ever-evolving; Segal’s knowledge of Female Consciousness is unique and unparalleled. Her inspirational and visionary, "Nancy's Truth; Memoir of an Archetypal Childhood" arises out of the muddy waters of her 1950s Los Angeles childhood, where she lived by the famous La Brea Tar Pits.
"I survived a childhood few have—by wits, will and imagination. I was lucky. I had a gift. I could read Archetype. I saw the poetry in the characters, places and things around me—the good, bad, ugly especially the sacred and profane. I thought everyone did. Not until I entered therapy in 1991 did I learn that what I had was unique, profound and a healing medicine few possess yet everyone can learn to tap into. Although my childhood felt cursed, Blessing rode shotgun. I lived to tell, enlighten, and inspire."
Phoetics and Nancy Lee Segal are one in the same.
"At forty-one everything stopped. I couldn't function. I had forgotten everything. Pieces of my authentic self were left behind until a wise woman therapist asked me to bring in my childhood photographs. That was the beginning, the seeding of Phoetics. Long-lost truths, myths and magic began to return. I wrote and sketched my memoir using something I had no name for. When women heard excerpts, they asked me to teach them how to do what I had done: use their childhood photos to connect with their authentic inner self."
In 2009 Phoetics was born.
“Women embraced it fiercely. In 2011, I was invited to create and host my own radio show, 'Fun with Phoetics.' Women brought in their treasured childhood photos. Tears, laughter, female truths we all know yet never say aloud flew over the airwaves. Listeners were captivated. The mere quiet act of witnessing other women's common truths, myths and mysteries seemed to prove that, 'Yes, there is a safe way back home. Yes, you carry the answers to questions only you can ask'. My phone rang off the hook. Workshops multiplied. Sessions soared. "
Phoetics became a phenomenon. That was four years ago in Columbus, Ohio.
Today I speak, teach and guide Phoetics in my native Orange County, California and on every road and path that beckons. Women of all ages report greater wholeness and intimacy in relationships, especially mother-daughter. Men desiring a deeper authenticity and self-awareness, reap great spiritual rewards. The boy they left behind is finally seen, heard, honored and celebrated. Seniors are ecstatic! Their long lost treasured black and whites become the healing touchstones for both recording their stories for future generations and the inner peace and resolution that comes on the tails of Integration.
Whenever I present Phoetics , I look out to a sea of precious childhood souls, pressing treasured childhood photos against their hearts waiting to be seen. Kodachromes. Sepias. Daguerreotypes to Digitals. Myths, goddess images emerge in family trips, old station wagons, Christmas tree times, high chair exploits, school portraits. Jaws drop. No one wants to leave. Phoetics is a journey that begins when I speak but continues long after I leave--an unforgettable event people take away, dream on, celebrate and best of all, Heal!
Currently I offer Phoetics monthly workshops in Orange County, as well as custom-themed workshops for your organization’s unique event. Private Sessions are also available In Person or via Skype.
