ConsciousSHIFT with Julie Ann Turner featuring
SELF-TRANSFORMATION THROUGH STORY / BARBARA MAINGUY & LEWIS MEHL-MADRONA
Story shapes our world - and reshaping our stories
can positively transform how we experience our lives
Stories are the units of meaning-making
that help us make sense of our world.
And, as Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guests Barbara Mainguy and Lewis Mehl-Madrona - co-authors of REMAPPING YOUR MIND: The Neuroscience of Self-Transformation through Story - share with us, retelling your personal, family, and cultural stories can transform your life, your relationships, and your world.
Where we may have been thrown into an unhappy
or even hostile story, we have ways to remap
and re-story our lives ... and through conscious
story-telling, we may transform the inner
and outer landscapes of our lives.
We'll discover a road map - traced by neuroscience -
through which we may view the inner landscape
of our collective minds as the territory of stories we live by.
We tell ourselves and others who we are, what motivates us, how we arrived where we are today, and what kinds of challenges we face in the stories we live by.
As it turns out, stories are far from passive, inert influences in our lives; they can be every bit as dangerous as they are healing.
The latest neuroscience research on memory, brain mapping, and brain plasticity confirms the power story
exerts on our lives and how we experience the world.
Moreover, when we engage our stories consciously,
we may experience transformation and transcendence by being able to story our life differently.
Join Julie Ann, Barbara and Lewis, as we go on a gentle journey to discover our inner (and outer) storytellers - and learn how to negotiate with them, to form coalitions of healthier voices, to oppose the views of more negative voices .. and in this way influence our experience, and co-creation, of our world.
