What We're About-Rebuilding
repositories of stories are under fire. There is a lack of trust
and belief in education, law, the church, police,
government, big business, and the media. Without this trust and
belief, the social fabric becomes threadbare. New stories are needed,
and they need to be created by those who understand how story does
Our focus is to build understanding of the mechanisms behind how
and why stories work. Using this understanding, we encourage responsible
action and use of this understanding to conduct ethical narrative
Our core focus is helping everyone
explore how story works and how to work stories. We help
participants decipher story codes, genres and patterns to discover
hidden meaning. We teach how to seek out the ghosts of dead or
forgotten stories in
culture. We examine how public stories are scripted and shape our perceptions
and decisions in unconscious ways. Raising the level of our
narrative consciousness enlarges the domain of choice for us as
citizens and consumers.
We want to give people a new frame of mind, not
just a bag of tricks.
