Resource Each Other – Skills for Peer-to-Peer Support (session 3)
April 28 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Learn how to invite stories so a group can build trust and become wiser together.
Telling and listening to stories are vital ways we relate, learn together, and build connection in community. Bringing storytelling into any conversation or gathering creates warmth and resonance, invokes the imagination, and draws people’s attention towards each other.
Each person has so many stories to tell, yet in the pace and disconnection of modern life, we often have limited avenues to share and draw wisdom from these. With skillful invitation and context-setting, we can open spaces for stories to be shared. Here, we can listen and find larger meaning and inspiration when we connect our stories.
In this workshop, you’ll learn processes for integrating story-telling into conversations and gatherings and have an opportunity to practice these. We’ll also explore Appreciative Inquiry, where we gather stories of what is working well, which can provide an empowering starting point to the question, “where do we go next?”
Following the workshop, you’ll get a ‘resource-rich’ email of methods, articles, and other links to support you in applying these ideas.
