Talkingstick was founded to give the truth a safe place to be told. We speak to universal truths by telling deeply personal stories, stories that changed our lives. We have learned there are guidelines to help us achieve this goal. They are:

 - Tell the truth
 - Speak from the heart
 - Go deeper
 - Mix the tribes

 Speakers include storytellers, poets, comedians, writers and musicians. We've been to the Friends Meeting House, Tibet House, St. Mark's Church, Bowery Poetry Club, Rubin Museum of Art, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine and Taliesin Spring Green. Talkingstick events float between locations because these truths belong to us all.
