Blogs, Podcasts, TED Talks: About this page

Stories matter because they build our connections and relationships with people and ideas. The vast range of human experience, the past, present and future are woven into stories. The content of stories can be literal or metaphorical, poetic or prosaic, but the human voice enlivens them. While some stories are difficult to absorb, they are moments in which growth happens. They are authentic accounts of how someone lived through an experience, was changed, and that change is an invitation to think and act for personal growth.
