Expanding Perspective
Deepening Empathy

[and having a good laugh about life]

What Is The Narrative Method or TNM?

* TNM is a group experience that uses stories to increase awareness, wonder and  empathy.

* TNM helps us connect deeply and develop meaningful relationships.


* TNM creates a space for us to communicate authentically without the pressure to conform to arbitrary rules.


* TNM gives us the tools to put ourselves aside, absorb new points of view and imagine the world through the eyes of another.


* TNM gives us the opportunity to expand our tolerance for differences.


* Through TNM we discover new perspectives about what may be possible for ourselves, others and the world.


The Narrative Method's award-winning trainings and workshops empower participants to explore the ways culture, media and personal beliefs interfere with the ability to deeply connect. The efficacy of our programs has been borne out in a yearlong study conducted by California State University Northridge. Even with the most difficult to reach populations, 98% of participants demonstrated profound increases in empathy and tolerance.

"I am normally a very shy person but I felt really open and comfortable. It was enlightening, helpful, and uplifting.  I felt like in two hours, I got to know complete strangers better than I know any of my colleagues.”

– LP (HR executive)

"I feel better about myself. I'm learning how to understand people better, too."
