Bring Your Stories to Life!

- Telling autobiographical and personal life tales.

Your life is a unique story, a true 'Once upon a time; adventure of a striving heroine or hero, facing challenges, over coming obstacles, falling in and out of love, and experiencing loss, triumphs, and transformation as you follow an invisible storyline that reveals itself from day to day.

If you feel a call to honour your journey, and celebrate the ‘real stuff’ life and all good stories are made of, you are warmly invited to join us and ‘Bring your Stories to Life’!

On this course, in a fun and encouraging atmosphere, we will explore together methods of unlocking memories, sourcing meaningful experiences from our personal biography treasure chest, and transforming them into fascinating stories; gifts for ourselves and those around us.

You will find how to use your authentic voice and presence to serve the call of your unique story. We will learn storytelling techniques and how to shape, or craft, these stories artistically, so that our personal experience touches something universal in our listeners, revealing what it truly is to be human.

Working creatively with our perception, understanding, and interpretation of personal experiences, we will open doorways to find fresh meaning in past experiences and seeing our present story as full of potential and possibilities.

By the end of the course you will know how to use an effective process of crafting, transforming and polishing the raw pearls and raw diamonds of memories into the shining invaluable gifts of precious gem stories; as well as the required skills to apply to any story you wish to tell, and to any audience of listeners.

This journey will run over 4 meetings, once a month for 3 days (Friday evening to Sunday afternoon -4.30pm), and is suitable for anyone who has already complete a Begin It Now course (our weekend introductory course) or complete any of our longer courses.
