As a Storywalker, each young person is the main character of a unique life story. Placed into a challenging environment and tested with difficult situations, the character travels the path of life's ups and downs.
Each young person writes his or her own divine story by choosing how to react to each situation. Storywalkers learn to engage with Earth, with Spirit, and with one another - heart to heart - to overcome challenges and to co-create more meaningful life stories and a better world.
Stories unfold as characters step into each moment, mindfully observing, listening, feeling, reflecting, and then reacting. The Storywalking process is like turning the pages of a book to see what happens next. The outcomes of each choice educate and inform future choices.
