The Past Is A Foreign Country

My talented friend Francois Lubbe made a short film about my journey with storytelling, the piece is titled ‘The Past Is A Foreign Country’.

This short film takes a brief but in-depth look at the positive impact and healing power of storytelling, and how its application and practice can transform lives.

    I have just been ripped wide open watching this short film!

    Ade you are an amazing human being – you embody thoughtfulness, honesty, openness and forgiveness…….. To the man who made the film, what a wonderful job you have done in presenting the fullness and authenticity of this very special man to us. Thank you!

    I love that you touched on the residual shame phenomena. Shame is found in all strata of abuse and denial of the authentic self. In my work with women it is one of the major issues to deal with in the healing process. And speaking personally, I have found that though it is mostly absent now it can still pop up now and again – it never seems to completely go away – it is just something we deal with 🙂

    Ade I loved seeing you right at the end of the film – where you are in the group LBGT group chanting. Your inner joy and peace was radiantly obvious. There was no sign of anger, shame or blame in you. One of the great gifts of travelling the road of denial of self and abuse is that we are offered the opportunity to know we are truly more than our stories. I think you know that.

    Thank you Ade and many blessings to you and your on-going work. xoxo Pauline

    I apologize for being so late in reading this post, my blogging brother. I was away in Greece while my father recovered from surgery. Great job, my friend. Muck love and naked hugs! 😉
