ReStory: ReWrite, ReSpeak, ReImagine Your Life.
Saturday, August 5
When you reshape the way you tell the stories of your life amazing things can happen.
Positively reframe your personal narrative.
Write for performance.
Learn, or polish, the skills needed for successful, dynamic, storytelling.
Get comfortable pushing through fear and self-doubt in order to discover what you are made of.
Through writing and storytelling, this workshop will focus on identifying aspects of self and experience that we tend to frame negatively. We will use intention and mindfulness to reframe the way we tell those stories to ourselves and others. Elements of self-discovery, mindfulness, effective storytelling, public speaking, and facing fears are at the core of this program.
