Discovering a Path to Connection and Creativity
Humans have been telling stories since the beginning of time that ignite our connection to self and affirm our belonging to community. When we can connect our personal stories with traditional stories we can access a deeper wisdom about life. In this workshop, you’ll explore the intersection between the art of storytelling and the healing arts, and learn how you can use stories to offer clients a fresh, creative, and enlivened experience. Through a variety of interactive exercises—including movement, voice, and visual arts—you’ll discover:
- How to tell a simple traditional tale and uncover personal meaning in timeless archetypes and structures
- The universal element in your personal story
- Skills to guide clients in a nonthreatening creative process of exploring a traditional story that leads to insight, resilience, and transformation
