Fall Storytelling Intensive: Stories of Healing/Healing our Stories

Oct 15 2020 - Nov 19 2020
Thursdays, 6 PM – 8:00 PM

Location: Remote

This six-week intensive will help you master the art of live true personal storytelling! The workshop covers crafting stories using the five-part story arc, delivering your best performance on stage, and a treasure trove of secrets to this satisfying art form. And as a special twist, the theme of this particular intensive will be stories of healing. How do we tell stories of our traumas and dark nights of the soul? How do we talk about the events of our lives that truly shaped and transformed us, change how we saw ourselves, others, and the world? And how do we do this in a way that acts as the final verse of a healing spell – finishing and integrating our healing process?

This class is appropriate for therapists and those working in the healing arts, as well as any and all who feel the call to tell the story of their personal healing one-on-one, in public, or in memoir or personal essay form. This class includes a live storytelling show over Zoom, where you’ll tell your story before a live (remote!) audience and have your story recorded as an audio file for you to keep.
