Soul Stories hosts conversations that facilitate personal healing, human connection and social change
Select your interests:


Stories have the ability to both divides and connect us. Our stories of ‘others’ can be incomplete and filled with assumptions. We help people develop skills to have challenging conversations within and between communities so we can move past the issues separating us and preventing progress.

Over the last 5 years, we have hosted over 100 events that have impacted 2,500+ participants in the metro Denver area.

It’s more important now than ever that we learn how to be in dialogue with one another so we can build healthy communities and relationships.

RECIPE for Community: Stories from Denver's Past - Pt. 2

Join Denver Artist Franklin Cruz as he interviews a group of long-time local artists that have grown up alongside the city of Denver. Enjoy these artist's personal stories, and their perspective on the ever-changing community that they call home. This interview will delve into some of the most intimate moments of the storyteller's pasts, and ultimately answer the question: what is your recipe for community?

Facebook Live from 6:30 - 8:30PM


In this time of isolation, we gather around the virtual fire to connect. Campfire is a weekly space for open dialogue, story sharing, and creative expression.

As the guides of the evening, we will set the tone, structure, and facilitate the event, but this event is intended to be improvised by the attendees. Come experiment with us!

RECIPE for Community: Stories from Denver's Past - Pt. 3

Hear from Jim Cronin, a science teacher and science fiction author who taught at middle schools of Denver for thirty years. Jim and his son David will share and compare stories about life in Denver over the past half a century. We will unpack questions such as: How has education changed over the decades? What happened in public schools when the bussing program was initiated to integrate the education system? How are things different for the different generations in your family? How has the city of Denver changed, and how does it continue to change?

Facebook Live from 8-9:30PM
