The World Mother Storytelling Project is based on and has

grown out of the Narativ listening and storytelling method,

which has been honed across decades of work on multiple continents.

The method enhances emotional intelligence by developing empathy,

compassion and connectedness.

The crux of the method is to harness the power of participants’

stories for personal healing and social transformation, which are at

the heart of the Project.

​World Mother is an attempt to surface the hidden knowledge

of mothers and inscribe mother stories into the world.

It is a creative vision of how mothers’ stories, and children’s

stories, overlap, intersect and shape nations.

The bond between mothers and children is a lens to examine some of

the most contested issues of our day, such as the ascendance of

womens’ voices, maternal health, environmental protection and

the need for discourses around love rather than hatred.

In the midst of the growing consciousness of the way women’s stories

have been written out of the public record for centuries,

World Mother offers a very concrete vehicle for changing

that—within families and communities; in public; on stage; as art.


The global threats of climate change profoundly affect poor, rural and

indigenous women whose lives are impacted by food shortages,

droughts, floods and diseases. The local knowledge of Mothers—housed

in their stories—are sources of innovative solutions.
