Have you been called by Story? Do you have a desire to explore that which is longing to be told?
Story seeks our attention. Intelligent and self-organizing, it is a wise and living expression that needs our participation in order to emerge from the fruitful darkness into the golden clarity of form.
The time has come to honour your untold stories.
Through intuitive writing, deep imagery, and self-generated prompts, we will cross thresholds into the wild realm of story. With reverence, freedom, and playful curiosity, we will track the shimmering shards of story as it emerges; tending to our wild and precious expressions as they begin to take form.
In this 4-part workshop series, you will discover:
• Ways to create a reverent space for story
• Self-generated writing exercises guaranteed to get the words flowing
• Techniques to harvest rich story material and patterns that emerge
• Tips to transform raw story fragments into a cohesive whole
These Story-maker sessions will empower you to:
• Connect with your inner storyteller, wise healer, and creative soul
• Discover simple and powerful intuitive writing methods
• Unearth the hidden patterns & gems embedded within your writings
• Develop a consistent writing practice
• Explore your rich inner realms
This series is for those who wish to immerse themselves in the mystery and magic of story-making. Whether you’re currently working on a writing project, or wanting to explore the hidden stories which exist within, these sessions are sure to jump-start your writing process! You will leave with valuable tools to develop an ongoing writing practice, faith in your ability to write AND complete a story, and the motivation to keep going!
Note: This is NOT a critiquing group. You do not need experience as a writer to participate in this series. All levels are welcome!
