Now it was the women's turn to make their own story ropes.
Charise did a great job teaching the process, so why were only two-thirds of the class getting their materials ?
I told them that it was perfectly fine if they did not want to make a story rope. BUT......
....I assured them that if they did make a rope, they did not have to share their story.
That seemed to free up the women and they slowly made their way over to the materials table.
They finished their ropes and the next day they would be invited to share their stories...if they wanted to.
