Memoleaves is created by three women who met through our children. A chance conversation about the weather between a filmmaker, a multimedia specialist and a psychotherapist birthed Memoleaves. We want to create projects highlighting and documenting the power of the lived story. It is a desire of ours to create a place for everyone and anyone to document their death stories.
We believe there is wisdom in these stories and we believe everyone is the expert by the pure fact of living it.
Lived stories; everyone has one.
Memoleaves focuses on our stories around death.
Death changes us.
We want to hear the stories of the living as shaped by the dead.
It could have been a death of someone close to you; or someone at a distance you didn’t know.
It could be recent or have happened a long time ago. It’s the story you need to tell.
We believe in the wisdom of the lived experience.
You don’t need to be a writer or an expert on death to contribute here.
Your experience is your qualification.
We encourage you to write in your own language.
We encourage you to write from your heart.
So write your story, your reflections may help someone else understand themselves or their own experience better.
You may help one life breathe more easily and make sense of their altered world.
We hope that Memoleaves becomes a place of comfort, reflection, catharsis and insight……………………..
