Standing with Ukraine & 
Our Latest Offerings

Seems like we had just a few days when the pandemic lessened its grip, and now this tragedy. Our friends in Ukraine have to flee, people in Moscow are arrested for protests, most of us are not sleeping all these nights scrolling the news.

A Re-authoring Teaching Statement of Support for Ukraine

When Russia invaded Ukraine, shattering the peace whose fragility many of us underestimate due to the privileged peacefulness of our own lives, it happened coincidentally just as a sub-group from Re-authoring Teaching had picked up a dormant thread of discussion around our Hot Topic, Narrative Practices Around the World: Intercultural Considerations.  The thread began as a casual reconnecting between folks from various places on the planet, but as events unfolded—as was the case when this Hot Topic first formed at the beginning of the pandemic—we heard stories, and responses to stories, of resistance, resolve, pain, and relational accountability from members of our own international community was soon evident. One member had fled to the UK from Hong Kong, now fearful that to return and be subject to mandatory Covid screening was to offer up their DNA to a now-emboldened repressive regime. Another member was navigating life as a student and mother in the UK while their friends and family were protesting in the streets of Moscow....

...With authoritarianism on the rise worldwide—and what is that if it isn’t the ceding of authority to a single-story teller—where are we to stand? What are we to do?  As part of this disentangling work, we find inspiration in Kaethe Weingarten’s (2010) writing on what she calls Reasonable Hope in a Time of Global Despair.

Co-sparking Conversations Across Narrative Generations
Sunday, March 20, 2022 Collab Salon
4:00-5:30 pm New York time

How can we develop working relationships across narrative generations to become mentors to each other? What are some of the fresh ideas and different nuances persons from different generations are adapting to narrative practices from their cultural and historical contexts? This gathering brings together two narrative practitioners  in conversation across narrative generations. Akansha will interview Peggy Sax, a narrative therapist and Founder of Re-authoring Teaching and Trishala Kanakia, a fairly new narrative therapist and the Re-authoring Teaching Assistant. We hope to spark ideas about how narrative practices are being applied in diverse work contexts and also to highlight the fresh and different nuances each practitioner may bring in as they use the practices with their know-hows, wisdoms and adaptations. 

Everyone can register for free.

Narrative Practices Around the World: Intercultural Considerations

Narrative ideas and practices that began in Australia and New Zealand have now spread to many countries throughout the Americas, Canada, Europe, Asia, and Africa. How will narrative practice sustain and transform in the coming years and decades? While honoring our mentors, we take delight in the emergence of newer voices within a generation of narrative practitioners. Please check out our newly updated Hot Topic Narrative Practices Around the World: Intercultural Considerations including , Emerging Narrative Initiatives: Across Narrative Generations.  This edited version of the November 2021 Collab Salon (also featured above) brings together Raviraj Shetty & Jehanzeb Baldiwala (Narrative Practices India, Mumbai India), and Alfonzo (Poncho) Diaz (Colectivo de Prácticas Narrativas, Mexico City, Mexico) to learn more from them about their narrative initiatives and collaborative spirit.
