Sometimes when we tell our stories we travel down the same well-worn tracks. The questions in The Sunday Story Club are carefully crafted to sidestep the prepared narratives you use to explain your life experiences to yourself and others. In this way, you learn about your self.
Escaping the stereotype into wisdom & understanding
My co-author, Doris Brett, and I spoke at the HAPPINESS AND ITS CAUSES Conference in Sydney in 2019.
Doris’s talk addresses the importance of face-to-face communication, explains why telling our stories out loud can help us understand ourselves, and shows how having deeper conversations can lead to insight into our life experiences and, ultimately, to wisdom. And I talk about the way to open up conversations by using more interesting questions.
The Sunday Story Club: The Book Club without Books
The official book launch of The Sunday Story Club: The Book Club without books @ Readings Hawthorn. Great enthusiastic crowd. That’s me in the Hi-Vis shirt. Ha!
There is a hunger out there for open and honest conversations!
My co-author Doris Brett & I were overwhelmed with the enthusiasm for our book THE SUNDAY STORY CLUB (PanMac), @The Happiness Conference in Sydney on Mon. There seems to be a hunger out there for open and honest conversations. This is one theme of the book, which we wrote as an antidote to all those FAKE online personas. (Yes! Irony alert! I’m online here.)
Not only do we share stories from our salon, we also show you how to run your own salon so you can benefit from deeper connections with others.
