Collective Story Harvest

Collective Story Harvest

For The SunDuLetti Project (January 2012)

Lotan and Blanca gave me the perfect opportunity to share this Art of Hosting process. It enables us to ‘practice targeted listening and group learning while offering a gift to the story holders, as well as the group as a whole in the form of collective meaning making’.

Inspired by Christina Baldwin’s book, Storycatcher, the invitation to the group was for stories of change around the question, “when have you claimed the right to speak or write your own life?”

One lesson for me from the test run was to reinforce that the structure of the process serves only as a starting point for following your own creativity and imagination…which reminds me of Margaret Wheatley’s quote, ”start anywhere, follow it everywhere”.
