Sick of chitchat, we started our Sunday Story Club to encourage a deeper conversation. The results were so uplifting and moving we wanted to share both some of the stories and also how to run your own story salon so others can experience this magic too.
Now a 5 STAR review on Amazon shows authentic stories – not the curated FACEBOOK versions – are both moving and inspiring. These stories connect us beyond stereotypes.
THIS WRITER’S LIFE: It is always amusing to see the company you keep on the bookshop shelf. Here we are this time with Shane Warne, Tim Costello, Jeremy Clarkson & Makybe Diva, a horse! The Sunday Story Club, Melb Airport.
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 STORYCLUB (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:
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.
