17) David Newman (Sydney, Australia).

Workshop: "Narrative Therapy: The smallest

of actions that set off people’s preferred stories’"

In this workshop David Newman will speak

about some of the forces that can serve to

dishonour, dismiss or obscure such action.

He will then share some options for honouring

such actions and ways to build preferred

storylines.

     As Michael White, one of the originators

of Narrative Therapy, said when referring to

what people and communities do in the face

of trauma, "People are never passive recipients

to trauma.  People are always responding to

what they have been put through."  Yet there

are many ways action and responses people

make to address trauma in their lives can get

dishonoured, dismissed or obscured and

therefore potential preferred storylines lost.

46) Jennifer Ramsay (Spain).

Full Moon Ceremony and Story Workshop.

Tune into the cycles of the moon!  When we

attune with the moon cycles, it becomes easier

to plan and create our lives.

     The new moon gives us the opportunity to

start anew every month.  It is a perfect time to

stop, go within, and connect to our dreams

and goals.  We can make new moon wishes,

set intentions, and sow these seeds to grow

with the waxing moon.

     The full moon is the culmination of the lunar

cycle, and emotions may be high at this time. 

When the moon is at its brightest it can shed

light on our shadow aspect and help us to see

what is out of balance.  It is a powerful time for

inner work, to look within and see what needs

to be released with the wanning moon to

promote healing and wellbeing.

     Jennifer will help us connect with the energy

of the full moon, in Virgo, through a story and

a visualization exercise.

Juliet writes:

The old stories live on in our modern lives. As our

world begins to emerge from a traumatic time, we

will be left with over a third of the population afflicted

with post-traumatic depression, anxiety, and despair.

The famous Russian folktale, “The Firebird,” with Its

vivid images, stark drama, and guidance from an

avatar of the healing imagination, has helped many

of my clients and their healers re-ignite resiliency

and courage to take life-affirming action.

57) Kevin Cordi (Ohio, USA).

Workshop:

"Developing a 'Narrative Mindset': When You

Think Story, Story Happens and Matters." 

Dr. Kevin Cordi shares how we may be "wired 

for stories" (Cron, 2012) but if we don’t know

how to use the wiring, we can't be charged-up

for stories.  Drawing on Carol Dweck's idea of

growth and fixed mindset (2007), learn how to

use story to make meaning, whether you are

on the public stage or simply engaging in the

day.  Discover what happens when we think

and act "in story."  This work builds an aware-

ness of how adopting a "narrative mindset"

(Cordi, 2018) can change the way you act,

react, think, and move with story as your guide. 

Participants will be equipped with how to re-think

using narrative-based reframing and other

strategies.  They will walk away valuing not

only how a story is told, but also how it can be

used, and can be used to make meaning.

59) Lani Peterson (Massachusetts, USA).

Workshop:

"Storytelling for Connection, Insight,

and Transformation."

The stories we live and hear influence

the paths we choose to walk and the

meaning we make of the road we are on. 

Some of our defining stories become

sustaining stories, providing the perspective,

clarity, and courage to carry us where we

want to go.  Others become constraining

stories, filled with messages that keep us

paralyzed, anxious, and stuck.  Through

discussion and theory integrated through

experiential activities, we will explore some

of the healing story ideas and tools to help

us recognize, understand, and shift

constraining  stories to become fuller 

sustaining stories that empower us to

create the story we want to live.

104) Rebecca Lemaire (Spain).

"Storytelling and Conversations about

Death and Grief."

In many societies, death is a taboo subject. 

Yet death is very much part of our lives and

doesn’t always have to be negative and morbid. 

What better way than to use storytelling to

bypass this taboo and allow some of our feelings

and thoughts about death to come to the surface?

In this workshop Rebecca, who is also a Reiki

and meditation practitioner and teacher,

endeavours to create a safe space during

which she tells traditional stories about death

and grief (sometimes lighthearted, sometimes

humorous, and sometimes emotional), and

facilitates short meditations, activities, and

conversations around the stories. Come along

with an open mind and heart, and see what

comes up.  You are welcome to attend even

if you don’t wish to speak.  You might want to

bring pencils and paper if you wish to draw or

paint as a response.

Workshop:

"Building Connection and Empathy through

Storytelling."

Storytelling is, at its most basic, an act of

connection.  We connect not only through

our words, but through our relationship to

the stories we tell, and the emotional energy

we bring to them stories.  In this workshop,

you will participate in exercises to explore

stories of connection and to expand your

emotional openness in a group.  We will

also explore ways to make difficult stories

safe through the use of humor.

Alida Gersie PhD is a London-based independent

researcher, author, and environmentalist.  She discusses

how specific storytelling and storymaking techniques

can increase the efficacy of therapeutic practice with

individuals and groups.

     Alida has, since the 1970’s, worked extensively and

successfully with traumatized individuals, families and

divided communities.  During this time, she developed

unique storytelling and storymaking techniques that

facilitate psychosocial healing in seemingly hopeless

situations.

     Subsequently she became a senior academic.  In this

role she designed and directed many Postgraduate Arts

Therapies Programmes at Universities in the UK and

abroad.

     Change agents in over 40 countries use her ideas,

change-methods, and storymaking techniques.  She is

the primary inventor of the Six-part Story Method.

    Her books include:

Storymaking in Education and Therapy (with Nancy King),

Dramatic Approaches to Brief Therapy,

Storymaking in Bereavement,

Reflections on Therapeutic Storymaking: The Use of Stories in Groups,

and Storytelling for a Greener World (with Anthony Nanson 

and Edward Schieffelin).
