The Multifaceted Nature of Story with Laconia Therrio

In this workshop participants will consider why we tell stories and how stories affect us as both Teller and Listener. Be the story Folktale, Fable, Legend, Scary or Personal, something happens when Story is shared.

Reconnect to Purpose

WORKSHOP: The power of story. This workshop, led by Denise Keyes Page the founder of Ubuntu Storytellers and co-founder of Women Tell by the Decades, introduces storytelling and listening as pathways to reconnect to purpose; to help us fill in the blank. Together in community we will respectfully mine our stories for the buried insights which can both strengthen and enlighten us. Our process begins with prompts for reflection in solitude, followed by pair and/or small group sharing of our recalled stories.
