Unconditional Love: The Storytellers

CoverSofia, March 23, 2022

This year we turn 30! Another content by us: the book Unconditional Love. We presented it on March 23, 2022 online. The authors of the stories took part as well as the inspiration of this exciting e experience – the unbelievable Dr Paul Browde, psychiatrist actor and family therapist, and Dr Murray Nossel, psuchologist, Oscar nominee and director of the ‘Narativ Inc’ company.
The book is unusual with the fact that the texts present from first person the life stories of grandfathers and grandmothers of the participants in the three-day training on changing the narrative. By evaluation of all the involved the book is highly emotionally influential. During the meeting the participants felt again the way they are connected with one another via the life stories of their ancestors.
