We are living in a time of great change. Socially, culturally, environmentally things are changing quicker than ever before in human history, and we are beginning to glimpse just how interconnected we all are. These are times of exciting innovations and also significant challenges. How we choose to respond to these challenges will have a huge impact on the future of humanity. The stories we are exposed to influence what we think is possible and how we respond. This is why the Story Connective is dedicated to documenting and sharing stories of possibility and resilience in order to inspire more positive transformation.
Thank YOU Patrons for allowing us to tell these important stories! We are grateful for your ongoing support and what you allow us to be able to do!
The Story Connective highlights:
Stories of Communities:
Groups of people that are learning to interact in ways that align with the spirit of life rather than trying to control and dominate it.
Stories of Individuals:
People who live lives they feel purposeful and excited to be living, that are also in alignment with values of respect, sharing, health, forgiveness, gratitude – values that evoke a more just and peaceful world.
Stories of Earth Care:
Examples of the methods that people use to grow food and interact with nature in order to more effectively share resources with each other future generations of life.
World Myths and Folktales:
These are old Stories that are still very relevant to our modern day psyches. We all are inheritors of a profoundly rich world oral mythology. These are the bones - the foundations of our inner lives, and so many of us only know a few. We will share stories from multiple cultures: myths from Hawaii, folktales from South America, fairy tales from Asia, and more. These stories can illuminate wisdom, empathy, inner and outer awareness, and new ways of being.
All the content that we create is published as Creative Commons, so that it can be used by anyone. This includes those we interview: the change makers who are often so busy making world changing projects happen they don’t have time to document their actions and show others how to do it too. We want their brave ideas and actions to flourish and take root everywhere. We also know that as more people globally are connected to the internet in the next few years, these stories of resilience will have an even larger impact. This is the service we want to share with the world. But we need your help!
Your support empowers us to spend our time on this important work. You are helping us to change the old story and prove that connection, integrity, resilience, and sharing are valuable!
