Join us in May of 2017 for the Spring Storytelling Retreat & Adventure – 7 days of practice and performance, feedback, and discovery.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 picturesque 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. You will engage in exercises, conversations, tellings, teaching, and ‘deep listening’ that will nourish your being and your stories while bringing them into the light whether the telling is for a family gathering, a corporate event or a storytelling festival audience.This 12th Annual Storytelling Workshop welcomes all levels of expertise, from beginner to experienced teller. In a supportive and encouraging atmosphere, participants discover ways of being in the world that nurture your creative flow while developing 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 learn to give self and partner appreciations• Activate your body as a key component of a well-told tale• Use your voice, breath, and silence to support the audience’s listening journeyContact the StoryWindow office for more information!
