Racial Healing-Meta Commerse Interview Part 2 PGE 25

This episode is the Part 2 of 3 interviews with Meta Commerse. Part 1 focused on Meta’s poetry and novel. In this episode we discuss the story/journey of Meta’s development of Story Medicine and her use of it to facilitate healing.

As Meta said in Part 1, “My work with people, it takes them to those stories, to those places that they had not told and they had not spent time with, and that they had spent a lot of energy not telling. And preparing a way, working with them, somehow, to prepare a way for them to find their language and break their silence and go ahead and tell it.” This is the nature and purpose of story medicine.

You can learn more about Meta, her Story Medicine Wisdom School, and her publications (in addition to how to buy her books) from her website:
