About the Event
Workshop Dates: Monday, November 25th 6-8pm and Sunday, December 1st 2-4pm
We all want to become more comfortable and confident when we communicate with others. Since story is how humans communicate and play is how we learn, the best way to evolve our story ability is to play with story.
By design, this workshop isn't one-and-done. It's a double-chance to play and replay, to train our nervous system to relax a bit, by learning tools and practicing behaviors that help us connect and reconnect. During the sessions we'll start safe, move to brave and then have the chance to leap with that bravery into an upcoming STORY event (optional). All the while doing exercises that activate your child instead of your parent, get you into your body and out of your head, teach you to trust your instincts rather than the shoulds, and give space to reflect and integrate what you're uncovering.
You'll come away with
- knowledge about the elements of an impactful story
- practical steps for crafting your story
- exercises that stretch you out of comfort and into confidence
- connection with a group of people who celebrate each other's unique voices
- resources to help your stories get out into the world beyond the workshops
Wear comfortable clothes. Bring something to write on, something to write with and a lot of curiosity.
Recommended: a refillable water bottle.
Optional: Yoga mat or blanket to sit on.
Preparation: None. You do not need to have a story prepared to attend.
Disclaimer: During these sessions, confetti may be thrown. Previous attendees have experienced a wide range of emotion and there have been cases of simultaneous laugh-crying. Please be warned that experimenting wildly will be praised while working hard will not be celebrated.
Excited to play with you and your story Monday, November 25th 6-8pm and Sunday, December 1st 2-4pm. Space is limited.
