Sharing stories is of the essence.
Such stories are a kind of map or mandala. A mandala of character, time, place and journey. A four-(or more) dimensional map, with each element implicating — reflecting, shaping and responding to — the others.
Told and re-told, such a story comes alive, taking on a life of its own, and undertaking its own journey through a world of many stories — a mandala within a universe of mandalas — living stories unfolding in a web of seen and unseen connections, causes and conditions, known and unknown.
Stories within stories, layer upon layer. Doors within, doors without.
