Narratives are powerful because they speak about and shape who we are, how we relate to others, what is possible, what is reality, and who we can become as individuals, communities, and the world. As we re-author our narratives, our lives are transformed and we become participants in shaping “the way things are”. The effect of each transformed narrative ripples outward into the web of our human connectedness: our families, communities, organizations, and nations. Join us in this transformational work as we start writing and painting our lives and systems into preferred ways of being.
