Finding Our Stories for a New Tomorrow: Active Imagination 

with Susan Tiberghien

4-Week Series: Sept 15,22,29 and Oct. 6


“Stories become the conscience of a community,” wrote Terry Tempest Williams in her recent book, Erosion. The conscience of today’s world is crying out for our stories. Covid-19 is a portal to a new listening, to a new tomorrow. Our stories will show us the way.

In our four webinars, we will first look at What is story? And, How do we find our stories?  Then we will look at What is imagination? How do we actively imagine stories? In the third session we will read excerpts from contemporary writers and craft our own stories into journals, personal essays, short stories, or poems. In the last session, we will look at how in sharing our stories, we contribute to the conscience of the community. At how we change the world, one story after another.
