Stories of Longing, Resilience and Choice [March 2021]

An online expressive arts workshop series focused on storytelling.
Writing and listening to stories can be liberating when we are facing any type of challenge. And… aren’t we dealing with big challenges right now? A story can give us a short break or a needed escape from the day-to-day “smallness” or “tightness” that is for many people an everyday reality. Storytelling can also be a playful way to explore our longings and to make sense of various life events.

Tales provide endless opportunities for exploring what is alive in us, what we long for, what we need at the moment, and what supports us in integrating changes. Stories can transform how we perceive the world and help us to build up resilience. They can widen our perspective, not just through the process of shaping our own narratives but also by listening to others.

Art, including storytelling, is a bridge between our inner and outer world, a pure expression of who we are as humans. Using arts creates new perspectives on how we see ourselves and reality.

In this series of three playful workshops, we will experience various forms of creative writing and much more! Through gentle movement, visualization, and storytelling, we will enter the alternative space of art-making and simply create inspiring narratives. Then we will share our stories and listen to the ones written by other participants.
