ReStory: ReWrite, ReSpeak, ReImagine your Life
with Erin Mahone
6 Mondays, February 5 - March 19 (no class on President's Day, 2/19)
Final performance Thursday, March 22 at 7 pm
10 am - 12 pm
The most empowering thing a person can do is to reclaim the story of their life. We carry shame and fear that the world will discover the truth - we've experienced pain, we've made mistakes, we are faking it a lot of the time. The truth is that none of us are born with an instruction manual and NO ONE knows what the hell they are doing.
If you have decided you want to stop hiding, stop pretending, and take back your power then ReStory is your gateway. In this series you will learn to tell a great story; to find humor, lessons, and meaning in the challenging experiences of your life; and at the end you will stand-up in front of the world to share your unique and important perspective with your classmates and invited guests. Each participant will prepare a 5 minute piece to be shared at the final performance on March 22nd.
Your story belongs to you. It has the power to change the world. Learn to tell it in a way that makes you feel proud of who you are and of all you've overcome.
