Havana Cafe Sessions Podcast


Every week Sarah Beth Hunt and Clay Lowe meet over coffee to talk about matters of conscious living and practical wisdom.  We don’t profess to be gurus on these matters, just two people who believe in the power of conversation to find new insights and gain greater understanding of the world.  Please feel free to join in the conversation.  Together we can all grow in wisdom.

There is ‘what happened’.  And then there is ‘the story we tell’ about what happened.  Over time, our propensity to narrate events into a story that means something creates something much larger... our own story of our life.  A story of how we became who we are, and who we are becoming.

But which events do we choose to remember? Which events to we mark out as significant in our Life Story? And how does the version of the story we tell impact our own self-perception and what life we think we’re living into?

 

This week Clay and Sarah discuss narrative identity, the significant way we construct stories about our life.
