A Powerful Process for Personal Storytelling
“You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
Join me in this engaging retreat-like experience and discover your personal stories, one paragraph at a time.
MY LIFE IN PARAGRAPHS is an engaging process for personal storytelling. My program guides you in discovering and telling your most meaningful stories.
I show you step-by-step how to communicate the hard-won wisdom you’ve gained in your life. What’s more, you will expand your capacity to connect with others, and feel better known and understood by the people you hold close; all while making an impact on your future generations.
When you join in the “My Life in Paragraphs” process you will:
-Easily see the challenges you’ve overcome, the learning those challenges have offered, and how they have shaped who you are today.
-Have fun reflecting on the meaningful moments, people, and turning points you have encountered throughout your life.
-Gain clarity around how your core values were formed and how those values influence decisions you have made in the past, and in the present.
-Increase your awareness of your own uniqueness, and also understand more fully how you have shown up for others, and who has shown up for you.
-Strengthen the ties that bind your closest relationships, while witnessing your experiences in a new way.
I give you tips on how to share these stories now, and how to pass them on for future generations. These are your stories, you choose how you would like to share them.
My method is geared toward those who may not be super exited about writing, but do (or would) enjoy exploring, telling, and maybe even sharing their personal stories.
Come along on this meaningful journey! The gift of discovering your personal stories is not only a benefit to you, but those in your life today, and your future generations.
