LAPIDUS JOURNAL Spring 2016: Storytelling
Welcome to our flourishing Spring 2015 edition of Lapidus Journal!
Celtic traditions mark the start of Spring, or Imbolc, on 1st February by lighting all the lamps in the house. Our Spring Journal hopefully will be as illuminating and enlightening as a thousand lamps.
When I tentatively proposed a theme of Storytelling for Wellbeing back in December, I did wonder if I would end up writing the reviews and articles myself. But our contributors have done us all proud with a fine collection of articles from the reflexive to the academic.
