Weaving threads of meaning into narratives of possibility, hope, and renewal.

A narrative therapy involves listening to and telling or retelling stories about unique and empowered people and the challenges and problems they encounter in their lives.

In the face of serious and sometimes potentially deadly problems, the idea of hearing or telling stories may seem a trivial pursuit.  It is hard to believe that conversations can shape new realities and meanings of our lives.

But they do.

The bridges of plot and meaning we build with others help healing developments flourish instead of wither and be forgotten. Language can shape protagonists and events into narratives of hope, change, and restoration.

We hope you will explore this site to find ideas and inspiration for freedom, renewal, and possibility: for that which is just whispered within but always known and that which is thought long lost but now unexpectedly found.
