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. You will connect with other creative people and a nurturing instructor in a safe environment. At the end you will stand-up 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.

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.

Writers are thieves--of their own lives. Learn how to tap into your experiences, memories and flashes of insight to jump start that novel, short story, poem, memoir blog or creative journal that's been lurking beneath the surface. In these "writing from life" workshops, we'll explore how to access the right side of the brain, side-step writer's block and get all of our words, thoughts and ideas onto the page, determining the genre only after the essential words have been written. Join me for a 6 week series of reading, writing and sharing work aloud in class, that will result in your own portfolio of raw material, fresh ideas and beginnings that beg for your return. Please bring a journal and pen or pencil as we write by hand. Coffee and tea provided!
