What’s Your Story?
Let bestselling author and teacher Mark Matousek show you how to reinvent your life by changing your story.
Story is a vehicle for self-realization. Many people sleepwalk through their lives and rarely tell the whole truth to themselves or to other people. When we do reveal what Dorothy Allison calls “the scary story,” our lives are changed forever.
This lying reflex is so automatic that we forget the toll inauthenticity takes on our integrity and our well-being. When the luxury of lying is taken from us – by catastrophe or the desire to get real – the rubber of enlightenment hits the road.
Why Story Matters is designed to initiate students into the transformative power of telling the truth as a path to personal awakening. This six-week guided journey will challenge the story you’ve been telling yourself and the world and reveal the fictional chapters that are preventing you from being your authentic self. You will pierce the veil of your own fear, simply, by saying the unsayable.
The more you do this, the more powerful you become. When you tell the truth, your story changes. When your story changes, your life is transformed.
What you will learn in Why Story Matters:
- How to tell the difference between your situation and your story
