The power of story in our lives
Verlede week het ons iets gesê oor Garth Japhet, uitvoerende hoof van Heartlines, se nuwe boek. Hierdie gesprek stel die nuwe publikasie bekend. Dit bevat bemagtigende beginsels van toepassing op gemeentelike bediening. Kyk gerus – klik hieronder.
Beskrywing van die gesprek:
Maverick Citizen editor Mark Heywood in discussion with Dr Garth Japhet, co-founder of Soul City and founding CEO of Heartlines, on how stories can be used to tackle big issues in society.
Garth Japhet is an exceptional South African. He is a medical doctor who has turned his attention to exemplifying the importance of communication to public health. Over the years he has founded successful non profit organisations such as Soul City, Heartlines and For Good.
But in a new book Garth explains that underlying all of his activism is a belief in the power of stories – fictional, factual and our own. His philosophy “when you share your story with others and they share theirs with you, barriers break down, hardened attitudes shift and healing begins.”
