Storywurx, Stories Heal

Since we humans first walked the earth, we’ve used stories to heal ourselves, heal our families and to heal our societies. From paintings on cave walls to story circles around fires, to grandparents sharing stories of their childhood adventures around the dinner table. Today the details of our very lives have become stories shared with the world via social media. In order to heal ourselves and our societies, we must heal our INNER STORIES to transform our OUTER STORIES. Storywurx, Stories Heal.
