Part II: The Deep-Listening Story Tracker
How to Track a Story
Many years ago, I read The Tracker by Tom Brown, Jr., in which he described his apprenticeship with an old Apache tracker, Stalking Wolf. Captivated by his life-long training and extraordinary attention to detail, the Tracker-within me as a birth story listener was awakened.
In Part II of Birth Story Medicine, you will experience the vast difference between “tracking” a birth story and passively listening and meandering through one. In four weeks, you will gain knowledge of the following story-tracking skills through practice: Becoming still; Hearing with all your senses; Knowing what you are listening for; Which stones to turn over; How to keep the Story Pony in the corral; When to keep going and when to pause and listen more deeply. From the moment a story-teller calls you, you will begin following a trail backwards to discover the mystery of the emotional conflict which will ultimately lead to the story-teller’s recovery of peace of mind and self-compassion.
Five Ways to Learn at Home for Four Weeks
Each week, you will:
- Gain access to the in-depth modules on our online learning platform
- Listen to pre-recorded lessons presented by facilitators
- Study segments of birth story sessions to hear what works and what doesn’t
- Receive constructive feedback on your homework on the interactive Forum
- Participate in a live consultation call with your facilitator and small group of six peers.
