Human beings live in community. Human beings are solitary; we are born and die alone. This is our paradox. We are forever separate yet bound together. Much of the depth journey into one’s interior is a solitary exercise. However, there is a communal dimension to all depth seeking. It is this communal aspect of the journey into the deeps that the Story Circle addresses.
The Story Circle is something human beings have been doing since the beginning of time...
...whenever we have gathered to share our personal and collective stories with each other for guidance, support education, nature, counsel, celebration, and comfort. Participation in a Story Circle is one of our most fundamental needs. We have shared in Story Circles our entire lives: the small and large family units that nurtured us, the classrooms in school where we received our education, the social and athletic groups into which we have invested our life energy – all of these have provided structures within which we have connected.
