Our Mission

Our mission is to create safe, supportive spaces for people to share and listen to each other's stories, be creative, and see the world in new ways. We believe that everyone deserves to feel seen, heard and accepted for who they really are. 


 What is TNM? 



The Narrative Method (a California-based 501c3 non-profit organization) is an award-winning approach to building meaningful human connections by helping individuals reframe how they see themselves and others through the process of sharing stories. TNM programs and products are designed to peel away participants'  negative or false beliefs imposed by cultural and social influences to help them rebuild their understanding of themselves and the world. 

We Create Connection


Simple prompts ignite the imagination, inviting participants to follow their creative instincts.

No teaching. No critiquing. No fixing. Nobody's broken.

Each experience is a joyful, ever-changing adventure. And it’s amazing to see the multitude of perspectives that all began with the same pebble of inspiration.


TNM believes in the power of groups to help us recognize that we all belong to that crazy little thing called humanity.

Rather than pathologizing our unique differences or worrying about trying to fit into impossible molds, we discover that when we are real, others can understand and identify with us. When we speak and others nod in recognition
, it fills us with the confidence that we have something good to offer the world.


TNM embraces 12 interconnecting core concepts that serve as ongoing inspiration to living a more empathic, connected life. Each concept is designed to help you go deeper and better understand yourself and others.


Research has been proven TNM to increase AWE: Awareness, Wonder and Empathy. The concepts are meant to broaden our perspectives and help us appreciate our own story and cope with life's constant challenges.


We encourage discovery and self-exploration without dogma or the pressure to agree or fit in.
