Storytelling is an incredibly potent tool to transform our personal experiences into art. In these unsteady times, some of the most powerful work we can do is to tune into the stories within our bodies that are asking to be shared, and to write, perform, film, sing, dance them out with the intention to free the self from our own narratives, and to connect to others through our unique experiences. It is of the utmost importance that we as human's witness one another's stories, but often we find ourselves trapped by trauma, or attachment to the very thing that wounds us. The act of creatively unearthing these narratives can allow the story to stand outside of us, so that we can see it as a player within the grand scheme of lessons we are learning while in these bodies.
This workshop is for anyone who is interested in creative storytelling, artistic expression, activism, and exploration of the self. We'll explore the history and impact of storytelling throughout the ages, take a meditative journey through our own story, and through writing prompts and verbal sharing, we will allow the creative gems waiting within us to break free and find their own voice through whatever medium they desire. You'll leave with a seed planted for your next creative expression, whether it takes the form of writing, song, dance, an event, a collective, a poem, a book, a film or anything else you and the universe co-conspire to bring into form.
