About the Storyrope™

The storyrope™ is taught in the context of the Christian Worldview - putting one's story in the framework of God's story as told in the Bible. 

The storyrope™ is typically a narrow strip of fabric, on to which other fabrics, ribbons, buttons, beads and/or found objects are tied.  These multicolored elements can represent emotions, people, places etc. These are attached along the rope, creating a tactile timeline of that person's life.

The activity of creating and orally sharing the storyrope™ helps an individual process their story, giving meaning to the elements, often leading to emotional healing.
