Sticks and Stones: Rewriting Your Narrative


You are not the sum total of all the names you’ve been called. You are not the labels that have been placed on you. You are a unique being, and no matter what anyone has decided about you or taught you about yourself, the truth is that YOU are the one who defines you. In this session, we will name and examine the stories others have told us about ourselves, that we have told ourselves, and we will destroy the ones that no longer serve us. Like a phoenix, we will rise from the ashes and create our own new story.
