George Santayana famously wrote in “Reason in Common Sense” that “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” (p. 284, volume 1 of “The Life of Reason,” 1905). If you’ve ever been stumped trying to make a decision, you might have considered turning to people from the past to help you with the choice. Chances are, though, you struggled to find just the right moment in history to help guide you to the right decision. A new app, Insight – Story Therapy, hopes to change that.
More than 350 stories
Insight – Story Therapy contains stories from a variety of sources, from the Bible to Greek Mythology, Buddhist stories, and more. You can have more than 350 of the most original stories ever told right in your pocket, each with true meaning hidden in the words for you to uncover and apply to your own life.
Find just the right story at just the right time
Insight – Story Therapy helps you the most with its story generator feature. You choose the type of dilemma you are facing, the aspect of your life that makes the problem difficult, and then a variable that is the biggest issue in the situation you are facing. The app will then present you with a story that may give you valuable insight on how to approach the circumstance. If you just want a random story, the app will provide you with one.
Various belief systems
You can choose from various themes of your stories. The app contains Bible stories, Buddhist tales, as well as Greek and Norse mythology. The tales are told in a modern way, with fresh language and an approachable tone. There is a little bit of something for everybody in Insight – Story Therapy.
Getting the stories
Insight – Story Therapy is available for $1.99 on the App Store, and contains no ads or in-app purchases. The app is designed for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and requires iOS 8.3 or later.
