Storycatcher: Making Sense of Our Lives Through the Power and Practice of Story

by Christina Baldwin
£14.50   paperback  New World Library (2007)

Storycatcher: Making Sense of Our Lives Through the Power and Practice of Story by Christina Baldwin The courage to speak, the wisdom to write, the power to change.

Story is the heart of language. Story moves us to love and hate and can motivate us to change the whole course of our lives. Story can lift us beyond our individual borders to imagine the realities of other people, times, and places. Storytelling both oral tradition and written word is the foundation of being human.

In this powerful book, Christina Baldwin, one of the visionaries who started the personal writing movement, explores the vital necessity of re-creating a sacred common ground for each other's stories. Each chapter in Storycatcher is carried by a fascinating narrative about people, family, or community intertwined with practical instruction about the nature of story, how it works, and how we can practice it in our lives. Whether exploring the personal stories revealed in our private journals, the stories of family legacy, the underlying stories that drive our organizations, or the stories that define our personal identity, Christina's book encourages us all to become storycatchers and shows us how new stories lay the framework for a new world.
