The storytelling tradition reaches all the way back through the mists of time. The shamans and bards in ancient times traveled from place to place telling the story of us- what it is like to be human, our searches, quests and tragedies.

Woven within each story was a strand of truth, love, and magic and together it created the very fabric of our folklore. These stories were at once moral codes of conduct, warnings of deviating from the tribe, and examples of the journey each person needed to take to be fully human. This journey is one we all traverse. It's the heroes journey, a journey of our path, our life's path.

Today is no different except maybe that we don't take our stories as seriously as then.  we have our overarching stories of who we are as a people and then we have our individual stories of how we perceive ourselves and how we want the world to see us. By taking each of the three threads of truth, love, and magic apart and exploring what our story looks like and how it can shift by adjusting it under the lens of each, we can peel off layer by layer the parts of our story that keep us from evolving.
