Your stories have the power to change the world.
Your world. And the world around you.
But to change anything your stories have to live, they need to be shaped, shifted and shared.
Will you bring your stories to life?
The Story Wise workshops and longer programs will teach you a step-by-step process for making sense out of your stories, finding their purpose and telling with style, your style.
As a curious, reflective person, you have a passion for self awareness and growth, and a message for the world embedded in you.
And of course you have a deep love of story.
You know you have great stories in you, but it’s just not coming together quite right.
As a storyteller who learned the slow way, who failed and learned the hard way, I know first hand how frustrating and difficult it can be. I spent years trying to work out how to tell stories. And years understanding the personal story telling process, its gifts, how to listen and feel the story and allow it to live within me, change me and be changed by me.
Benefits of Story Wise Workshops and Longer programs
- Deeper sense of knowing who you are, increased understanding and self-awareness
- Reflection and making sense of old events. A sense of peace.
- Ability to share a message, embedded in a story of who you are, that hooks your readers or listeners, gets them to know, like and trust you, and follow your persuasion.
- The deep satisfaction of being heard, being in charge of your story and using your creativity to craft a story proper.
- Letting go of tired scripts and reshaping events in a new way
- The benefit of group support, group feedback and group connection. The learning that comes from a circle of trust and watching the development of others in their story journey.
- A story; a shape, a beginning middle and end to events, to be shared, written, told or shown.

Story Wisdom: Sept 6, 2017 Brunswick, Melbourne
Make sense, shape your stories.
This program is if you want to work with your stories and see what's there; if you want to explore moments from your life, and use the reflective storytelling process to find renewed understanding of who you are and what is your truth; you will shape and tell, written and orally, stories that bring to light your best meaning making, and reveal your inner world.
And maybe you will uncover the secret prize of personal storytelling: as part gift, part message, when we craft our life events into stories for telling, we decide how we define events, make meaning and re-story our life.
Story Wisdom is a one day workshop.
Numbers limited to five.
9am - 5pm
