No straight lines

This video, “No straight lines: We all benefit from maps of life’s territories”, highlights how we all benefit from maps of life’s territories. Maps help ground and orient us. Where we can become stuck and overwhelmed, maps can help us find our way. Maps help us to connect, share and draw upon the experience of those who have come before us.
