Christina Baldwin has new book out

Christina Baldwin, best know to this audience as the originator of Peerspirit Circling and author of, “Calling the Circle: The First and Future Culture”, has published a new work called, “Storycatcher: Making Sense of Our Lives through the Power and Practice of Story”.

Some excerpts from the Preface:

We make our lives bigger or smaller, more expansive or more limited, according to the interpretation of life that is our story. We are the storytellers, the ones who put life into words.

Events become real when we organize experience into narrative: we literally cannot think without words. People become real when we put interaction into words: story is the foundation of relationship. With words alone we can create connection, establish community.

Something is happening in these stories and in this book and in our lives. It is the time of the Storycatcher. It is the time when those who understand the value of story and practice the art of connection have an essential role to play….Storycatchers invite the stories we most need to come forward into the community.
