Telling Our Stories

Fri, 11th December, 2015 from 10:30 AM, in London

An experiential exploration of how story-telling can help our work and lives


“Stories make the heart grow bigger” Ben Okri

We are bombarded from all sides with information whether we like it or not.

In this workshop there will be time to focus, to review and reflect on your unique experience of and connection to your information, your stories.

There will be time to consider the stories you were told and the stories you weren’t, and the impact that has had on your sense of self.

There will be the opportunity to look at the different contexts in which we feel we can ‘tell a good story’ and those when we find it more difficult.

Throughout there will be the incomparable benefit of working with others:  having our stories heard in a respectful, accepting exchange, and listening to the stories of others adds a powerful dimension to the work.

This process of telling and listening can be truly informative, helping to build new awareness, affirm our chosen identity, connect with our dreams and expand our sense of what is possible.

The stories well tell not only write and re-write our histories, but can also change our future.

The workshop will be led by Harriet Spicer, currently a coach and mentor. She has a ‘long and formative experience of stories throughout her life’ and loves sharing that with others.  Jeremy Keeley will be the moderator.

The workshop will be held at The Amadeus Centre in Little Venice.  A light warm lunch will be available.  Sadler Heath is a not for profit organisation and nobody gets paid anything.  Presenters and moderators work on their learning edge and the workshop is both experiential and experimental.  We hope you will be OK contributing £65 towards the cost of the event and lunch.  We might go for a quick seasonal drink afterwards.
