The Seventh Story Experience
27 HOURS IN A NEW WORLD
Human beings are storytellers. It’s how we make sense of everything around us, from whether or not we want to get up in the morning, to how we can contribute to world peace. So if you want to change your life, and if you want to change the world, you have to begin with stories.
Currently, six primary stories shape our lives as individuals and as societies. They give our lives meaning, direction, and drive, even though many of us have never given them a name. As soon as we name them - domination, revolution, purification, isolation, victimization, accumulation - we start to notice something: these stories do not work.
Instead, they drive us apart, create more suffering, and fail to answer the question of how to make a better world. The sun is setting on our old stories.
But there is a Seventh Story, misunderstood and hidden, but available to everyone … a story that upends what we think we know about religion, politics, economics, art, and even storytelling itself.
Brian McLaren and Gareth Higgins have been thinking and talking for many years about how to tell better stories to make a better world. Now we want to invite you a brand new experience: the first public event exploring, experimenting with, and embodying the idea of the Seventh Story.
It's a conversation about a different way of living that could change the way you see yourself.
It's an exploration of how humans relate to each other that could end war.
It's an inner journey that could transform how we experience meaning and love, and turn our contemporary anxiety into a thrilling hope for our own participation in making a better world.
It's 27 hours, with up to 100 people talking, listening, working, playing, and celebrating together. A new community imagining a new story. (There'll be an open air ritual with a fire too, but we'll tell you more about that later.)
Hearing the Seventh Story changes your mind. Stepping into it will change your life.
