Christine Carlton – The Inside Story to Wellbeing

“The stories people tell have a way of taking care of them. If stories come to you, care for them and learn to give them away where they are needed. Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive. That is why we put these stories in each others’ memory. This is how people care for themselves.” —Barry Lopez, Crow and Weasel

Within all of us are stories waiting to be told – stories that can affirm, challenge and provide insights to help us and others develop understanding, connection, empathy, resilience and promote health and wellbeing. In this practical, participatory workshop we will explore how we invite people to give voice to the stories that say something about what we value, what’s challenging, humorous and inspiring for us.

Storytelling is not only a pleasurable activity for the listener and teller, it also can be a process for developing confidence and wellbeing in the workplace, family and community. This workshop will provide you with simple processes to unearth stories that contribute to the wellbeing of individuals and groups.
