New Parent Company, Same Mission

When we open our minds to the stories of others, or share our own in truth, we invite healing for both the listeners and the storytellers. Tikkun Olam, a Jewish expression translating to Healing the World, has always been the inspiration for our mission statement...

"Healing Through Storytelling"

Autistic License is a surprisingly funny, heartbreakingly tragic, authentically surreal and unflinchingly honest play which offers a glimpse of the rewards and struggles of raising a child with autism. 

This critically-acclaimed play goes beyond the statistics and divisive headlines to provide audiences with the personal experience of living with disability.  Autistic License is a play that is ultimately about family, love and relationships. 

Autism may be the vehicle that drives this theatrical piece, but the true message of the play speaks to anyone who thought their life was going in one direction, only to find themselves on a completely unintended journey.

*********************************************
Does it ever seem to you that just when you think you got something down, life has this way of shifting it all up?

You know the saying, "Life is 10% what happens, 90% of how you react."

How do we react when life rises above or falls below our expectations? Do we accept change willingly? Fight tooth and nail? Try to run and hide? or get paralyzed in fear, unable to move away from the train about to hit?

In all my victories, defeats, challenges and amazements, these questions have arose, yet from the perspective I was in at that moment.

Shift Happens...
birth, death, relationships that come and go...
health, wealth...
abilities, accomplishments, failures
beliefs, seasons,
fashions and hairstyles,
All these and more that represent the cycles of our lives...
SHIFT HAPPENS...

Awareness of that small phrase allows us to more gracefully move through our lives.

As always, there is so much more to share, but for now, please share this information with anyone you think might be interested.

Until next time, SHINE ON!
Many blessings for health, happiness and only gentle transitions.
 
Sincerely,
  jules :)
