Since ancient times people have gathered around a central hearth to listen as stories are told, revealing where we come from and how we are bound to one another. Every culture or community and every family or group of friends has its unique stories, told over and over with laughter and tears. These stories form the very foundation of our being, helping us discover, ever more deeply who we are.

At Resh we experience, time and time again, the power of storytelling to heal. The audio stories found in Passing the Torch: Stories of Wisdom and Legacy and the videos of Lily reading stories from Two Rare Birds: A Legacy of Love honor ancestors and reveal a path to transforming loss into legacy. We invite you to listen and watch some of our favorites, below..
