Every gardener knows that plants need two things: time and sunlight. The same is true for stories. Come to this week-long storytelling workshop in Asheville, NC and encourage your stories to come out of the shadows. Enjoy a whole-life approach to being a teller, one in which “telling” is as much about listening to yourself and the world around you as it is about skills and preparation to tell, whether it is a family gathering, a corporate event or a storytelling festival audience. You will engage in exercises, conversations, tellings, teachings and ‘deep listening’ that nourish your being and your stories while bringing them into the light.
This Storytelling Workshop welcomes all levels of expertise; from beginner to experienced teller. In a supportive and encouraging atmosphere, participants discover and develop skills to:
•    Find, create, learn, and polish stories.
•    Effectively integrate voice with image, gesture, and emotion.
•    Embody a story and break free of memorization.
•    Engage in companion listening and appreciative inquiry.
•    Activate your body as a key component of a well-told tale.
•    Use your voice, breath, and silence to support the audience’s journey as they listen.
