About the Event

〰️ Stories are so much more than words; the meaning of your message moves through your body, your voice, your facial expressions, and your energy. What would be possible if you were able to regulate your nervous system and become comfortable using the full range of your storytelling instrument?

〰️ This Connect With Story event is based on neuroscience research, improv techniques, and somatic self-regulation tools. You’ll learn to shift your energy and tap into confidence for networking, presenting, pitching, or wherever embodied, resilient storying can have the biggest impact in your life. Sharing a 5-minute story is optional.

〰️ Join us and connect with the good people from the Groundfloor community at their beautiful, welcoming space in the Mission.  (Groundfloor is an inclusive community of people from all walks of life looking to build meaningful relationships. We are a member-driven social space that steers the curiosity and interests of members through shared commonalities and experiential events. Join us at Groundfloor -- the People's club.

〰️ Not a member of Groundfloor? No problem. Just sign up here, then show up, keep an open heart and mind, and practice being your-really-great-just-as-you-are-self with others.
