THIS WRITER’S LIFE: We always like good reviews. But this review honours the women who were so generous in telling their life stories. It also demonstrates the power of the human voice. We hope you will run your own Salon and experience new insights into your life too.
My co-author, Doris Brett & I, were overwhelmed by the enthusiasm for The Sunday Story Club at The Happiness & It’s Causes Conference in Sydney a few weeks ago.
THE SUNDAY STORY CLUB (PanMac) shows how to ask questions that open up a conversation. The conference delegates that bought a book said they would use these questions to facilitate better conversations in aged-care, youth groups, and the workplace.
THIS WRITER’S LIFE: I was in Dymocks, Melb CBD, on Friday signing books when up popped an image of The Sunday Story Club on several large screens around the store. But look! The books now have an autographed edition sticker on the cover. That’s never happened to me before.
Big thanks to Dymocks and Zoe for all their enthusiasm. And if you can’t make it to Dymocks:
Our audiobook has just been released. It is a bit spooky hearing your own voice. You can listen to my co-author Doris Brett reading from the introduction (click below the pic).
The Sunday Story Club. We all carry stories within us – wrenching, redemptive, extraordinary, and laced with unexpected and hard-won wisdom. These stories define you. Deep conversation has the power to enlighten, heal and transform.
Your curated, online persona is NOT you. You need to talk.
The stories you tell yourself define you. But are they accurate? Could there be another version?
In The Sunday Story Club, we ask questions that sidestep the prepared narratives participants often use to explain their life experiences to themselves and others. In this way, you learn something new about yourself. You can find out how to run your own salon in the book.
There are many benefits to spending time reflecting on your life through a deeper conversation.
Here is our interview with Cassie McCullagh, ABC Sydney, about our book The Sunday Story Club.
We would love others to engage in a deeper conversation by running their own story clubs.
