A Special Invitation

We invite you to go deeper into the stories that matter most to us…

Do you hear me calling you

The voice of a mother, and a father and a child

Would you recognize the truth

Do you feel a love that’s falling from my eyes?

Take just a minute

Come and rest you by my side

Let me tell you your own story

Let me walk you through your life

Only a second, is all it takes to realize

There’s a hundred thousand angels by your side…

Amanda Gorman calls us to write our stories

~ A reading of a portion of "In This Place (An American Lyric)," by National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman, courtesy of SoulPancake.

We are the storytelling species

There is a power in our stories.

Storytelling is how we know who we are.

StoryCommons is where conscious storytellers converge. 

Sharing Our Stories - Creating Community

StoryCommons offers the most comprehensive storytelling toolbox available for telling the most important stories of our lives. We owe it to ourselves – and each other – to give life to our stories, to share our journeys with each other that have shaped us into who we are.

Storytelling is in our blood; it is an essential part off our nature. Storytelling is how we get to know what our connections are, how we discover that each of our stories are pieces of our collective history. The Commons is where this community-building happens, where we learn from and engage with others through the stories that are shared…

Our Stories Can Change the World!

Through the stories we tell of our lives, we tap into ageless themes and archetypes that suddenly become familiar to us, add greater meaning to our lives, and link us to our ancestors. Our stories are variations of the myths, folk tales, and other sacred stories that have spoken across generations of our inner truths.

Telling our stories strengthens family and community bonds. With so many families living so far apart today, and so many others still suffering from the effects of various hurts over the years spent together, stories can connect families across great distances, be they internal or external. Stories shared create communities of memory and sustain hope for the future. Telling our deeply lived stories makes the implicit explicit, the hidden seen, the unformed formed, and the confusing clear.

As we share our stories that matter most to us, we see we have a lot more in common with others than we may have thought. This connection that is established remains, and cannot help but change our world.


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
