We are born into a story which becomes ours and shapes us as we grow and develop. It tells us who we are and places us in the world where stories can be very powerful.
Often though, we can’t include everything in a story and parts of ourselves and our life are left out. When we bring them in, there is a depth and a richness that is palpable. We can shape our own story by how we want to be in the world.
There is work in bringing ourselves more fully into life and discovering what is genuinely true for us. Exercises and practices to develop capacity and skilfulness as well as courage, creativity and our own wisdom are central to this inquiry.
‘The pen that writes your life story must be held in your hand’.
