Presentation: The Stories We Tell

An ‘identity’ workshop from Life Clubs

Stories have been told from the beginning of time – from ancient cave paintings to oral traditions of poetry to European minstrels and writers, as well as Middle Eastern Sufis and scribes, no culture is without their lineage of storytellers.

What we are going to focus on is the way stories bring new energy and perspectives to understanding yourself and your problems.

Perhaps you’ve never thought of yourself as a storyteller before. However, storytelling is such an integral part of being human we barely notice it. It’s everywhere, from the blogs we write to the gossip columns we read and the television we watch. Or even the gossip that flies around the office and round your family.

You might even find that the story you are telling about your life is just that – a story. This workshop will enable you to recognise the story you tell yourself and others. And, of course, the wonderful thing about stories is that you can change the script.

This workshop is one of 50 (with more being added all the time) from Life Clubs. Life Clubs run weekly across the country and focus on a different aspect of the Life Puzzle each session leading to a clearer way of thinking.
