Yaamanda yanay barriyaygu? Will you come to the window?

When people seek healing, they come clutching a story that they and others may only have considered from a select viewpoint. Yaamanda yanay barriyaygu? [Will you come to the window] or Barriyay for short, is a Narrative Method that invites clients to journey through a story from several vantage points: AS IT WAS KNOWN, AS IT WAS TOLD, AS IT IS KNOWN, and AS IT WILL BE TOLD to take back the power and be the one who determines the story. The method is being used in therapy sessions and with literature written about Australian Indigenous Peoples by colonists. I am researching its use across Indigenous disciplines and welcome feedback.
