Multimodal Storytelling, Listening & Attunement as Transformative Medicine

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this daylong Master Class, discover how and why stories function as a healing modality, and how storytelling, mindfulness awareness practices, art therapy, drama, and dance provoke deep expression of one’s personal story. Participants will learn practical skills and experience a profound collaborative method in service of uncovering the story that inspires personal transformation, as well as the stories that we tells others for community healing and well-being. The teaching team will demonstrate the potency of deep listening, and the attunement necessary for working with trauma of all kinds. This training is applicable for those working with diverse populations in a variety of settings that include schools, humanitarian organizations, prisons, men and women’s groups, and community crisis efforts in the aftermath of disaster or conflict. Everyone is welcome!
