Consisting of 150+ questions--designed to be answered in as little as five minutes or as long as a lifetime-- What ' s Your Story?: A Journal for Everyday Evolution (Sounds True) is essential for anyone ready to begin living their most authentic, creative, and meaningful life. Now in book form, this method is based on the authors' work with workshop participants and digital subscribers around the world.
- Explore by area of life: Each chapter invites you to explore a different part of life as you move through your day--from waking up and encountering your mind, to being in relationship with your body, other people, nature, and technology, to reflecting on community, identity, and mortality.
- Explore by theme: Five themes, color-coded throughout each chapter, allow you to explore a particular focus from beginning to end: creativity and self-expression; self-care; activism; spirituality; and grief, loss, and the work of healing.
"Finding the voice to know, write, and speak your story can mean the difference between an existence of repressed silence and a life of joyful fulfillment," write the authors. "Our stories have the power to limit or liberate us."
"Rebecca Walker and Lily Diamond have created a powerful workbook to rewrite your life--to transform the scripts you've inherited into the narratives you choose." --Esther Perel, New York Times bestselling author, therapist, and podcast host.
"This journal is beautiful. It will help you find your voice and, finally, hold it sacred." -- Cleo Wade, author of Heart Talk and Where to Begin.
