TNM: Music Saved Me
Tuesday, January 12th at 7:00p.m. PST / 10:00p.m. EST
Music manages to make us a community while simultaneously being deeply personal. With this in mind, I am inviting you to a zoom event hosted by my wife Shari Foos and her organization The Narrative Method. Kick-off your New Year with us for a fun and meaningful conversation around our shared love of music and the ways it has shaped us.

ABOUT THE NARRATIVE METHOD
The Narrative Method (TNM) is an award-winning approach to building meaningful human connections by reframing the negative stories and false beliefs that define us. At TNM, our programs, products and experiences practice empathy to broaden participants’ perspectives about themselves, others and the world.
The humanistic practice of relating compassionately to build deeper understanding.
Embracing awareness, wonder
and empathy to honor differences and help you see the world through someone else’s perspective.
THE CULT OF CULTURE
The negative messages and noise that confuse and shame us into disregarding ourselves and conforming to groupthink.
WHO YOU REALLY ARE
Seeing the value of different perspectives to discover new possibilities.
