Praise For How Your Story Sets You Free

“Human beings understand the world best through stories: not policy papers, not PowerPoint, but stories. And in this book Heather and Julian are ace story-enablers, bringing out the tales that all of us have inside. A must-read!” —Bill McKibben, bestselling author of Falter and Radio Free Vermont

“Working with Heather and Julian changed everything by getting me over the hurdle that stood between what was true about my life and what I was willing to share with the world. I became able to join my life’s work with my life’s hardest-won lessons. The passionate energy that wakes up inside us when we know we’re powered by the full truth is something I wish for every single one of us. I’m so grateful they’ve distilled their wisdom and vision into this book. Dig into the lessons and exercises inside, do the work, jump over your hurdles, because trust me, we need to hear your story—and so do you!” —Caledonia Curry, artist who goes by Swoon
