    Product Details
    The Soul City and Soul Buddyz series are memorable for the way in which they
    integrated health topics into compelling storylines on TV, radio and in print,
    creating stories so popular that they entertained and informed millions of
    people. And the Heartlines’ ‘What’s Your Story?’ programme and films such as
    Beyond the River, continue to provide witness to the transformative power of

    As a young boy, Garth Japhet found his life radically shaped by the Jungle
    Doctor series of books. The stories so enthralled him that, against all advice, he
    set his heart on medicine. He could see his future – with a backdrop of
    savannas, golden sunsets, adventure and accolades – as a romantic figure, a
    healer, a hero.

    This fantasy sustained Garth through the challenges of medical training, but
    finally he arrived. He was Dr Japhet, living the dream. Except the dream was a
    nightmare. The reality of medicine was not the life he had hoped for. There
    were times when he cursed the power of the story that had so completely
    messed up his life. Having struggled with anxiety most of his life, he was
    catapulted into a deep depression.

    And then it happened. Garth stumbled upon the healing power of story –
    fictional, factual and his own. What magic was at work here? If stories had
    changed him, could he use story to change others? This question set him on
    the journey described in Like Water is for Fish; a journey that led to Garth cofounding
    Soul City and Heartlines, and to an understanding that story, in its
    multiple forms, is as essential for our lives as water is for fish.
    When you share your story with others and they share theirs with you, barriers
    break down, hardened attitudes shift, and healing begins.
