60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday: Like Storytelling Healing Is Connection
by Diane Wyzga | February 17, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Webster Parish, Louisiana!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday with your host, Diane Wyzga.
I’m not a therapist but storytelling is therapeutic. What do I mean? We connect to a story because something beckons us, speaks to a feeling, an emotion, an experience of ours. We recognize it. We feel it resonating in our bones. We can turn to the story and say, “What! You, too? I thought I was the only one!” [C.S. Lewis]
Things around us need healing. Healing is connection. What if someone asked us how do we feel disconnected? What if, instead of bemoaning our current state of affairs we say, “Hey! This is just like having a fever and when we have a fever that’s the body saying, ‘I could use a little help here!’” What if our pain is like a societal fever? And what if we could revisit our stories to figure out how we lessened our pain in the past? And then do it again.
Question: How might we proceed to engage, to connect, to share the stories that will help lessen the fever and restore us to health? What story would you share?
