There is something really special about stories that come from our own geography - from the people with whom we share a culture of place. How amazing would it be if every town & city had a practice of gathering to share stories?! Well, for this episode, we used the Story Bridge Method to guide a group of people through a Talk Story Exchange in Wailuku, Maui. Participants were given a prompt: "Talk about a time when something radically changed in your home, yourself, or your community." Each person shared a story from their own individual lives & deeply listened to other participants' stories. This podcast is a selection of true stories we heard that night from members of our local community.

Special thanks to Maui Academy of Performing Arts & Mālamalama Maui for hosting & sponsoring this Talk Story Exchange gathering in Wailuku, Maui.

Special thanks as well to Richard Geer, the founder of The Story Bridge Method & Qinghong Wei, Story Bridge's executive director, & the Story Bridge Team for all your community & support. Find out more at StoryBridge.Space

In this episode we tell you a lesser-known fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen about a melodious songbird during the Industrial Revolution. “The Nightingale” was originally published in 1843, as the machines of the Industrial Revolution were appearing in greater numbers around the world, & as engineers & philosophers were singing the praises of their advancement. In this story, Andersen masterfully juxtaposes the emergence of the machines of his time with this story about a modest melodious songbird. This story touches on themes & symbolism including life, death, nature, art & society, human progress, & -of course- resilience. 

This is the first time on this podcast we are delving into myth, & folktale, & we’re pretty excited about it. Mythology & story symbolism can connect & inspire us in deep ways.

Noah Rattler takes us on a journey into ourselves & beyond. We talk about everything from science fiction, to ancient Rome, to mental illness, to shifting society. Noah has some incredible ways of cultivating resilience in possibility in his own life. A few years ago he walked 1,800 miles from Houston to LA in the sweltering summer heat to raise awareness for homelessness, & to show his community & beyond how any human can do extraordinary things. We hear the story of his walk, his motivations & mindset, & how his life experiences & self education have changed his connection with himself, nature, & society.

Our hearts go out to all those affected by the flooding along the Gulf Coast from Hurricane Harvey. If you feel moved to help by volunteering or donating, look for a homelessness organization in the Gulf Coast region -or a local homelessness organization near you- by starting at the National Coalition for the Homeless: NationalHomeless.org

Hear the inspiring story of a group of people working together to reforest part of the island of Maui. Art Medeiros & the Auwahi Forest Restoration Project are protecting tracts of highly endangered forest as biological and cultural sanctuaries. Hawaiʻi is home to some of the rarest plant species on earth. It is known as the endangered species capital of the world. With the help of volunteer tree planters, the project has begun to successfully restore some of this remarkable native habitat on the slope of Maui’s volcano Haleakalā. Art shares with us this story of resilience.
