Rebecca Walker and Lily Diamond with Whitney Leigh Morris – What’s Your Story? (Virtual Event)

January 17 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PST

Transformational questions for personal and collective change.

In this time of global reckoning, revolution, and reinvention, authors Rebecca Walker and Lily Diamond invite you to excavate the narratives that have shaped your life and write a new, fulfilling story for the future. Consisting of 150+ questions—designed to be answered in as little as five minutes or as long as a lifetime—What’s Your Story?: A Journal for Everyday Evolution is essential for anyone ready to begin living their most authentic, creative, and meaningful life.

  • Explore by area of life: Each chapter invites you to explore a different part of life as you move through your day—from waking up and encountering your mind, to being in relationship with your body, other people, nature, and technology, to reflecting on community, identity, and mortality.
  • Explore by theme: Five themes, color-coded throughout each chapter, allow you to explore a particular focus from beginning to end: creativity and self-expression; self-care; activism; spirituality; and grief, loss, and the work of healing.

“Finding the voice to know, write, and speak your story can mean the difference between an existence of repressed silence and a life of joyful fulfillment,” write the authors. “Our stories have the power to limit or liberate us.”
