The DoBeDo Way

“Stories set the inner life into motion…

…[they] cut for us fine wide doors in previously blank walls, openings that lead to the dreamland, that lead to love and learning, that lead us back to our own real lives . . .” [2]

Engaging with stories leads to an invitation to change as we discover new things about ourselves, our communities and the world. In the DoBeDo way it is for the hearer to notice and respond to that invitation, there is no expectation from the storyteller. We are free to hear and enjoy the story, we are encouraged to reflect and respond to it. We stay attentive to our feelings, noticing what we like and what makes us feel uncomfortable, and we are curious as to what that tells us about ourselves.

A story is the medium through which we learn more about our own story. As our story develops we make more connections with the story of the world, and perhaps the transcendent. This is the gift of story.

Openness to change

When we connect with a story we have time to process and reflect, and we can choose to make changes and see the story we tell ourselves about life in new ways.
