Finding Your Story

 

Story Medicine is …

an Indigenous healing modality blending ritual with the written word.  Medicine begins with words in Indigenous cultures.  Myth and legend heal because they remind us of balance and right relationship.

In Western culture, we are disconnected from our ancestral stories and from the value of our individual story.  To reclaim our story is to reclaim the lost self.  This is what makes Story Medicine so transformational.

Story Medicine Utilizes …

  •       An Indigenous frame of reference,
  •       The power of words,
  •       The sacredness of story,
  •       Memory as raw material and community                resource,
  •       Heart-centered language for what has                      happened to us,
  •       Healing community as we learn and heal                together, and
  •       New self-care skills necessary to work with            this modality.

Adinkra Symbols

These symbols of the Ashanti in Ghana are timeless and still used today.  The name “Adinkra” can probably be traced back to the word “Dinkra” of the Akan/Twi Language spoken by the Ashanti.  “Dinkra” means: being separated, taking leave, saying farewell.
