Healing Storytelling for Children with Debra Darby Session 1
Parent and Caregivers, Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles, Teachers and Healers, and all who interact with children.
(I guess that covers just about everybody!!)
You’re all welcome to . . .
Come have fun in this interactive workshop about healing storytelling. Why tell stories to children? What is a healing story, anyway? Why is it needed on the planet, in the community, in the home right now? A story created with loving intention can calm fears, offer hope and celebrate strengths.
We’ll begin with some warm ups, and then you can sit around an imaginary campfire and listen to some stories. We’ll then focus on the basic elements of creating a healing story, and finally, we’ll create stories ourselves in small groups.
There will be plenty of guidance but no pressure. No performance required; I promise! No experience necessary; I promise! Come in to find your inner storyteller, because we all have that spark within us. Come in to nurture the children in your life. When told with loving intention, stories can lift children up when they most need lifting, offer valuable guidance and inspiration.
Childcare provided! Please let us know when you register how many kiddo’s you’re bringing.
