Description of the program:
THE POWER OF STORIES TO HEAL with TERRY LÁSZLÓ-GOPADZE
Topics explored in the dialogue include:
· Why do stories matter?
· How Bobbi Gibb found the courage to be the first woman to run the Boston Marathon
· How to heal ourselves from victimhood
· How the power of generosity keeps on giving
· How one woman found the “Great Mother” when she was one of the “missing” in Chile
· How the hula can change the world
For Terry László-Gopadze the idea of sharing stories of spiritual power was born out of a struggle with her own health problems,grief for her desperately ill father, and sadness over her mother’s placement in a nursing home. She found mentors who guided her on a path of healing and growth by the stories they told.
Writer and spiritual activist Christina Baldwin, in a story in the book, says, “In a crisis of such proportion as the times we live in, there are no idle stories. We may be coming to the point where our ability to save or destroy ourselves largely depends on thestories we tell each other.” Sit back and be lifted by this remarkable conversation and storytelling that illuminate a core of truth for us all.
Terry László-Gopadze is a licensed marriage and family therapist. She is also a storyteller and has led workshops on storytelling, shamanism, forgiveness, intuition, healing, and creating destiny. She has worked with such diverse groups as cancer patients, 12-Step programs, women’s groups, and health centers. She is the editor of The Spirit of a Woman: Stories to Empower and Inspire (Santa Monica Press 2010).
