About Jennifer K Miles

I am an educator, researcher and writer, passionate about storytelling and its power to change perspectives of self. Through undertaking the journey of my own transformative learning, I now work with adults to support them in drawing forth stories of the strength and potential gained in their lives, as they move towards the creation of their stories as yet untold. My three beautiful adult boys are the most precious part of my story, and continue to walk with and support me in undertaking my PhD research about storytelling and the learning of our lives. I write about story and transformative learning ... the circumstances of our lives and the stories remembered; influences on the construction of our self-identities - positive and negative; critiquing the assumptions and limitations we have come to accept about ourselves, our potential, and our place in life; daring to imagine a story untold.

‘the best criticism of the bad is the practice of the better’

A new day dawns

Standard

As the day begins with a quiet hope of new beginnings, I hold you all in my heart. I am blessed to be surrounded by incredible souls… each of us finding our way in an often disorienting world… and I am grateful for the love and hope that continues to rise.

To each of you, thank you for showing up in life each day with such joy and courage. In spite of the personal struggles you endure, you continue to be there in all sorts of ways for me and those I hold dear, and for people near and far across our incredible global home.

In this season that celebrates love, I send you my deepest love and appreciation for you and all you bring to our collective world. Blessings to you and yours

Mike Rose’s Blog: The Benefits of Going to College: The Case of Joanie

Standard

A wonderful commentary from Mike Rose on the benefits of returning to study as an adult. Community Colleges are the American equivalent of our TAFE colleges, and can provide a rich, nurturing environment for those who step out tentatively on the road to personal and professional development. Joanie’s experience is my experience…
