A 3-day workshop combining mindfulness, creativity and storytelling for change-makers
17-20th July 2019
with Claire Thompson and Bethan John
At a time where the daily narratives of unregulated growth and consumption drive environmental destruction and social inequality, we need to change the stories we live by to change the world.
So …what’s your story?
Storytelling makes us human. It is our narratives that shape our personal and collective experiences, as well as impacting and influencing the world around us. Stories can connect and inspire. And they can divide and destroy. It is how we relate to, and shape them, that ultimately determines our individual and collective well-being – as well as our relationship to the environment we share with other species.
“Neither revolution nor reformation can ultimately change a society, rather you must tell a powerful tale, one so persuasive that it sweeps away the old myths & becomes the preferred story”
Storytelling to Myth-Making – Ivan Illich
Through mindfulness-based approaches, group reflections and creative writing exercises in the beautiful natural surroundings of the Nantlle valley, this workshop will explore how creative and authentic storytelling can enable us to contribute to a happier, more peaceful world that is striving to be sustainable.
