Stories have a way of connecting human beings - and many of us are fortunate enough to have many chapters to tell. No matter how young or old, rich or poor we are, our lives are filled with details of challenges and triumphs and world views and passion. Traditions of passing of on the shared human experience may vary widely, but the central purpose remains - and that is connection, communication and preservation. And no matter the format, shared stories have the ability and power to evoke deep emotion and healing within the listener AND the storyteller.
It gives people permission to be heard, seen, connected and the ability to know that they matter by engaging readers, involving them, and giving them more than what they started with. And it gives the storyteller a chance to be truly vulnerable.
Within in ALL OF us lies:
Passion - deep emotion, passionate experiences and deep convictions
Perspective - unique perspective for others to listens and gain something from your authentic experiences
Power - inner strength in nourished by a feelings of belonging and worthiness
Permission - your story will grant others permission to be exactly who they are, to feel what they feel, to hurt, to grieve and to stand in their own power and light
