Gareth Higgins, author of How Not To Be Afraid, writes, “Anxiety, exhaustion, and dread derive their power from a story. We can take a look at how fears depend on the story we tell about them – and then imagine a new story.”
In our series examining community, Clerestory writers and contributors have traced their ways to self-understanding, belonging, compassion, and contribution. In our work together, we hold storytelling as essential to our inner and outer work. The stories we tell, together, shape who we become together.
For April reading, we’re suggesting works which help us articulate new stories about who we are, how the collective is evolving, and liberating possibilities for our communities.
