Episode 033: Catherine Day: “Story + Mastery = More”, Visionary Storytelling and the Power of Purpose
In Episode 033, of A Medicinal Mind Wisdom and Well Being, I step away from the strictly medical to discover the beauty and truth of storytelling with visionary community leader and the founder of Storyslices Catherine Day.
In this conversation, Catherine shares her unique story-based approach intended to help others find their purposeful narrative and constructed from her extensive study at the Adler Graduate School as well as experiences as an executive in higher education, television, and radio.
We start the podcast wading in the waters of Catherine’s childhood with the birth of her own origin story and the beginnings of her calling as a steward of the story, paving passageways for others through life’s most challenging transitions.
Catherine then outlines her experience studying psychotherapist and medical doctor Alfred Adler, sharing how his pioneering work surrounding the role of community and our collective search for meaning informed the development of her story based approach.
We then explore the fundamental framework behind Catherine’s unique method, delving into the spectrum of tragic character states that hold us back and the transitional changes that must take place in order for us to embody our archetypal ideals, our SUPER CHARACTERS: The Truth Teller, The Visionary, The Healer and The Artist.
Catherine blends her own narrative, and even that of her mother as she describes the dynamic fluidity of these positive trajectories, and together we seek to uncover what really is at the root of our suffering or our hindered flourishing.
Catherine ends the podcast with a piece of her own creative mastery, a poem that will likely leave you too surrounded by the beauty of our natural world, free from the container reality says you inhabit.
