Who are you?  Where do you come from?  Where do you belong?

These days, answering those questions can pull you in opposite directions:

 
  • You want the freedom to be who you truly are, but you crave connection with others in equal measure. 

  • You're independent and empowered, but you're isolated and lonely.
  • You're interested in your ancestry, but you don't want to be defined by your origins. 

  • You long for roots that keep you grounded, but you resist the ways tradition holds you back.  

 

In our quickly modernizing, globalized world, as more and more of us move around the globe, our communities are changing, our perspectives are shifting, and our values are evolving. Our connection to our respective pasts— our heritage, our history, and our culture— has become tenuous, if not entirely absent.


Our sense of who we are, where we're headed, and where we belong hangs in the balance. 


Hi! I’m Emily Halpern, founder of The Repast Project. 

I help individuals, businesses, and organizations explore how their history impacts their identities, and preserve their past in ways that resonate in the present, and will stay relevant in the future.

I believe that, as we progress on so many fronts, we need to find new ways to relate to our roots and to our stories—ways that reflect our current perspectives and priorities, that help us make authentic connections with one another, and that make it possible for us to change as times change and evolve in our lives, our businesses, and our communities.

That's why I founded The RePast Project, and that's why I'm dedicated to helping people and organizations find progressive, creative ways to explore their stories, reconnect with their roots, learn from their history, and to keep their culture and traditions meaningful in the present and relevant for the future.

The Story of Your Past Should Serve You, Not Keep You Stuck.

 

But the past can be a double-edged sword.

Holding on to our histories and heritage can ground us, create meaning, give us purpose, and help us honor the hard work and sacrifices of those who came before us. But the stories we tell ourselves and others about our past can also keep us from moving forward, prevent us from innovating, and make it challenging to change with the times. 

The story you tell about who you are affects how you relate to others and how you relate to yourself. It can create meaning and connection in your life or perpetuate prejudice and misunderstanding. It can keep you barreling toward the future or it can keep you stuck in the past. It can empower you or discourage you...

As individuals and businesses, reflecting on and reframing our stories empowers us to see ourselves clearly and make confident, conscious, current choices about the way we live life, the way do business, the way we connect with one another, and about the world we leave to future generations.
