Gather a group of friends, co-workers, classmates or whoever you can find and come meet me, so I can help you discover the Power in YOUR Story with the Butterfly Touch! As a woman who has had to overcome countless societal barriers due to having a physical disability, I understand that sharing our own personal stories is our most powerful tool for initiating positive change in our community. In this workshop, I will guide participants as they start on their journey to find the most comfortable form and perfect voice for their stories, so they can be shared in any setting and with encouraging intentions. A story can be written, shown, just spoken, performed or it may have a little bit of everything. It’s up to the storyteller. There will be writing prompts, format tips, discussion questions and a few conversation exercises to help you see what works best for you. Give me enough notice and I can come to wherever you are! Depending on the level of participation, the workshop can run up to two hours and tailored to all types of storytellers.
Example prompts are:
- Think of an inspirational book or movie that really hits home and make it about you.
Who’s in the cast? What’s the storyline and main plot points? Is there an overall message?
- Write a short letter to a past version of yourself about a challenge they’re facing. What about your current circumstances would bring hope?
