A Quote by Jalaja Bonheim on stories, women, narrative, and life

When women get together, they tell stories. This is how it has always been. Telling stories is our way of saying who we are, where we have come from, what we know, and where we might be headed.

A Quote by Mandy Aftel on begin, aware, narrative, patterns, structure, life, revise, refine, and rewrite

As we begin to become aware of the narrative patterns

A Quote by Matt Seaton on self-mythology, narrative, and matt seaton
