What happened to meaningful conversations? Can we even remember how to do it?

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.

The BOOK CLUB without BOOKS. Stories of love, loss, trauma & resilience

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).

Online vs the Real You: We need to talk

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.

You are not a sad face emoji!

We talk. We text. We email. We might even Tweet and post on Facebook and Instagram. But too often we are just skimming the surface of our lives.

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.

Stepping outside the Narrative YOU use to explain YOUR LIFE

THIS WRITER’S LIFE:  Co-author Doris & I outside the ABC studios Melb. Great interview with Cassie McCullagh, Sydney.

We had time explain that The Sunday Story Club uses quirky questions to step outside the prepared narratives you often use to explain your life experiences. In this way, we learn about ourselves and others. These questions are intriguing to all ages.

How E M Foster’s dystopian world became our reality!

THIS WRITER’S LIFE: In Foster’s 1909 novella, The Machine Stops, people communicate via glowing screens but live lonely, isolated lives. His dystopian world has become our reality. We wrote The Sunday Story Club as an antidote to screens.

The Book Ninjas Strike Again!

THIS WRITER’S LIFE: So the , who set books loose on Australian public transport for commuters to take, read & return, dropped The Sunday Story Club off at Kyneton Station, my home town! I wrote 3 books about growing up on the Police Station in Kyneton. That is amazing synergy!

Doris and I wrote THE SUNDAY STORY CLUB so others can discover the magic running their own salon. And the idea that a random commuter might stumble across this idea is heart-warming.
