Welcome to this profoundly diverse collection of papers from Greece, Hong Kong, Australia, USA and Denmark.
— from practice based explorations about stories of the body … to narrative practice in the new media age
— from work within an Aboriginal community context in Australia … to explorations of Colombian magical realism
— from work with people with an intellectual disability in Hong Kong … to creativity research in Denmark
— from considerations of contemplation and creative solitude … to narrative responses to dreams and spiritual experiences during times of grief.
Narrative practitioners continue to expand the boundaries of the field in vibrant and creative ways!
