Everyone has their Story, Mindfulness provides the blank slate upon which to write and rewrite it."
This is a storytelling company created by Sola Story to bring to attention the potential of storytelling to provide therapeutic (not therapy) responses to the presenting needs of our times. It is fair to say that storytelling is humanity's most ancient education, knowledge transmission and mental/emotional/spiritual healing system. Nowadays we need compelling stories, stories that help to bring into the well of the imagination the possibility for creating the world of our longing. A world in which we recognise:
That the infinite extraction of the finite resources of our planet has no future.
That the subjugation of ancient peoples for the purposes of modern convenience and continuous consumer markets is against ourselves: all of us, including those who gain most in power and material wealth.
That teaching children to value GCSEs is good, however teaching them to value them more than themselves, their well-being and mental health is 'mad' if you'll excuse the pun!
Narrative Mindfulness is a group work facilitation approach to storytelling. Together as a group we build safety and a sense of shared ownership, so that participants are able to bring their vulnerability, their joy and their trauma in service of the group and therefore of themselves. Narrative Mindfulness uses techniques drawn from Storytelling, Creative Arts, African martial arts and mindfulness that engage the mind the body and the spirit. Neither our unique facilitation techniques nor our sharing circles are therapy, however participants describe the results as therapeutic and the techniques we train participants to use are simple but profound.
Want to change the story you are telling yourself? Narrative Mindfulness can help. Want to learn to tell stories and/or to facilitate other people to tell stories? Want to know how to use the body to have presence and to tell powerful stories?
Perhaps you think that your children could develop some self esteem and you think that learning about and leveraging the strengths of their cultural identity would be key in that? Maybe you know that learning eloquence and powerful public speaking are self esteem and confidence generators?
