WOMEN ROCK! story stones collections 1 + 2

Hello activists, organizers, moms, daughters and advocates of women!  Have you found story stones yet? They're amazing! I found them and fell in love.

What are story stones? 

Story stones are literally rocks with art on them, some kind of image or word. Story stones showcase images which act as prompts inspiring your imagination to build a narrative - one from experience or completely made up.

Story stones illuminate our voices. They enable the storyteller and broaden the understanding of the listener. They provide a starting place for a story, inspire creativity, and wake imagination.

STORY STONE IMAGES ILLICIT IMAGINATION, HIGHLIGHT MOMENTS IN OUR LIVES and HELP US UNDERSTAND OUR OWN AND OTHER'S ASSUMPTIONS. 

Why WOMEN ROCK story stones collections? 

Women and women's advocates are coming together as powerful activists, intentional organizers and brave women. This work is not new, yet our world is listening in a new way.

 

We show up as our whole selves, sharing experiences (some full of love and some full of trauma), asking hard questions, challenging patriarchal status quo that doesn't serve our communities, and supporting one another as we find our feet, our hearts and our voices.

 

Gloria Steinem and all inspiring activists (as well as those who have come before) put their minds and hearts and whole selves out there towards a place where love is a rule. I aim to support this work by providing tools to help facilitate conversations to actions, tactile ways to help us find the courage to open our stories to the world.

 

Change is often born when one piece of someone's story  resonates with you, with her, with him, with them!
