Everyone was tired of the old stories, they all wanted a new one, a New Beginning
But where would the new story come from and who would be willing to listen?
We all tell ourselves stories, and the process of finding a new story can be one of the first steps to breaking out of past patterns, showing us new and more satisfying ways to live our lives. Join us for a playful and creative afternoon of storytelling, embodiment and Bear Magic as we prepare to listen deeply for new stories, and let go of the old ones that no longer serve us.
2020 has been an extraordinary year. It has thrown up so many challenges, with aspects that resonate on both a personal and global level. Many of us will be currently in a process of change. This can be a very exciting yet confusing time, where clearing away the old allows us to see new possibilities, revealing more sustaining choices for the future. Letting go of these old stories gives space for new stories to form and take shape within us. If we trust their wisdom they will help us find clarity and show us the next steps that will take us forward.
In this immersive and online workshop, we will learn how to nurture our dreams of change for ourselves and the world, planting seeds that will grow to become part of the New Story we wish to create.
