“What’s Your Story?” Profile in Huffington Post

Local Ashland resident Craig Comstock wrote a nice article on the storytelling project I facilitate here in my home town. We recently had a number of bullying incidents at our high school that involved some arrests. We held a storytelling evening on the theme “Bullying” and it became a way for our community to address the issue–particularly with stories from bullies as well as the bullied. You can read the article here. Craig’s hope is help expand this model to other small towns as a way of building community, eradicating shame, and creating dialogue. This storytelling project is part of the compassion formation work that we are developing at the Center for Engaged Compassion.
