The Importance of Sharing Stories with Gemma Brady
Join me for the most delicious conversation as we round up the Practical Magic podcast interviews for 2018. I'm in conversation with founder of Sister Stories and documentary maker, Gemma Brady.
She has dedicated her life to creating spaces for people to tell important stories, be it on film, in writing or in their community. She believes in the healing power of storytelling and the power of the generous acts of both speaking and offering deep listening.
Gemma created Sister Stories as a means of offering women an opportunity to come together to be seen and heard, experiencing the transformative power of simply being given to the space to be truly witnessed. Grounded in the primal and magical traditional of storytelling, Sister Stories events invite women to depend their sense of connection to the self and one another, experiencing the simple joy of knowing we are all in it together. What started as a simple women's circle gathering in London has grown to a thriving, supportive movement with 15 women leading Sister Stories gatherings in their local communities.
We talk about the importance of sitting with others in conversation, and why sharing stories is so intrinsic to be human. It really is the most gorgeous podcast, and I could sit and listen to Gemma talk for hours, so do enjoy.
