“Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.” Maya Angelou
Our common bond of being human unites us, whoever we are, whatever our viewpoints. It is our diversity that helps us to grow and to appreciate differing views. It’s not a reason to build walls.
This filters out into my work. Everybody’s story matters. With the rise of polarising opinions, the hynoptic quality of news and media. along with those in power serving to divide not unify, it can be a confusing explosion of viewpoints. These are designed to increase fear and make us feel less empowered.
Nothing could be further from the truth. At the centre of our being is our knowing, our wisdom that helps us to discern what is true for us and what is blatant and as well as subtle falsehood.
This is where the power of Story can help to dispel the story makers that would have us believe the world can only be one way. As a Storyteller steeped in the richness of story with all its facets of connection and imparting messages, never before has the time to share our stories of being human been more important.
Alongside our relationship with nature, which needs to be rebuilt, I offer a viewpoint of being a guardian of the earth and not a mindless consumer. Being a co-creator with life and the planet means we will be more considerate of the earth that supports us.
And alongside that, if you take the time to delve deeper into the journey of your story, you will uncover the myths that guide you, the challenges to learn from, the healing that needs to occur as well as the truth of who you are. In doing this you will be empowered by following the crumbs of your soul’s whispers, into and onto the path of your true nature, which will only ever lead you to find and be your joy.
There is much to consider as we go forward. I truly hope the upcoming courses and posts provide an opportunity for you to get to know me. I look forward to working with you, sharing stories with you, and hearing your stories.
