I have a deep sense of gratitude for all of you who took part in the story course. Your commitment and generosity of spirit is overwhelming. You were able to grasp the ethic of collaborative creative work and really make the process your own. Thank you for trusting me as facilitator and the process.
Last night I talked for almost 2 hours on Skype with a Spanish PhD student who interviewed me for her thesis on using the ‘symbolic frame’ for creating lasting transformation in people. I told her about our process and some of the shifts we had noticed. She asked me how I know that these shifts are lasting and did not just occur on a superficial cognitive level.
How lasting is the happy ever after?
I had my own ideas about this, but I thought I would give it back to you and allow you yourselves to comment on the short term benefits you experienced during the course as well as the lasting value it has for you. Feel free to comment on how lasting you think the shifts are. What does ‘happy ever after’ mean to you in this sense?
Your comments will be invaluable for everyone interested in trying out one of our story workshops as well as for me to somehow capture the impact of the work.
Thank you for taking the time to reflect and share your thoughts, I am looking forward to your comments.
