Workshop Details

This is an invitation for you to discover your own unique and powerful story and the profound transformation that occurs when you speak it out loud. You’ll learn how to trust your creative impulses, thus embracing all of who you are. By becoming the author of your own life and learning how to tell your own story, you will not only learn to craft your experience into a compelling narrative, but you will also unleash a sense of purpose in your own life that you never thought possible. Through improvisation, writing exercises, and group discussion, you can cultivate a fearlessness in speaking your truth.

• Writing exercises to stimulate memory
• Learning to structure the narrative in a compelling way
