THE STORIES WE NEED TO HEAR NOW
An eclectic assortment of today's bestselling authors, storytellers, psychologists, and spiritual teachers, 'Sacred Stories' celebrates the healing role of stories in our individual and communal lives.
MAYA ANGELOU offers a poem that recognises the great diversity in the human family but reminds that 'We are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike.' ROBERT ELY serves 'Story Food for Women and for Men.' SAM KEEN explores the contemporary 'mythic battleground.' Vice President AL GORE explores the unwritten rules in the story of modern industrial civilisation. CLARISSA PINKOLA ESTES's 'Story as Medicine' honours story's ability to heal the wounded psyche.
In the midst of modern lives filled with noise and distractions, 'Sacred Stories' celebrates a renaissance in storytelling and story understanding, one that offers a means to look inward, at the story of our own lives, and outward, toward the story of our shared life on earth.
