More than 12,000 people have enrolled in Raab’s online courses. Write Heal Transform. As the course title implies, it serves as a hands-on guide to healing and transformation through writing one’s own memoir. The eight-week course consists of eight lessons (one lesson per week) that teach the basics of memoir writing and the ways in which this type of writing cultivates self-awareness and using one’s voice to speak one’s truth. In short, Diana Raab’s course helps wounded healers become storytellers. Her new course, Therapeutic Writing, is an empowering ten-day course guiding and supporting participants in using writing as a therapeutic tool to individual self-exploration.

A unique feature of DailyOM courses is that the price is not fixed, and those interested in taking them can pay what they can afford, starting from as low as $15 up to $50; the same material is available to those taking the course – regardless of what payment option they choose. The course page reads:

We simply trust that people are honest and will support the author of the course with whatever they can afford. And if you are not 100% satisfied, we will refund your money.

When asked about the most important takeaways from her courses, Raab said, “There are a few salient points that I emphasize in all my workshops, whether it’s memoir writing or writing for healing, and whether it’s an in-person or an online course. First, writing is a process.  Second, it’s important to enjoy the process or journey without focusing on the destination (possible publication), because this can detract from the creative aspect. Third, it’s important to write without fear. Writing our personal stories can be scary and daunting. It’s important to drop the fear and just write. As my first writing mentor told me, “Let it rip.”

Hummingbird is a spiritual memoir about the connection between three generations of women—the author, her mother and maternal grandmother, who was her primary caretaker until she took her life when the author was ten. Her wisdoms taught the author how to exist in the world. For more than five decades she carried these wisdoms with her as an author, nurse, research psychologist, teacher, cancer survivor, mother and grandmother. Her grandmother taught her how to follow her intuition and listen to her heart. The book also creates a bridge between her grandmother as a cholera pandemic survivor and the author’s experience with the Covid-19 pandemic.
Raab has a photo of her grandmother on her desk. When she stares into her eyes, she’s given clear messages. The deepest connection with her grandmother materialized during the COVID-19 pandemic. Her magic emerged via hummingbird visitations outside her writing studio. Woven into the narrative of their relationship is Raab’s journey and life challenges: being raised by a narcissistic mother, loss of loved ones, meeting her soulmate, raising three becoming a grandmother, and passing on her legacy. She illustrates how her grandmother’s spirit gave her comfort and strength.
