On Saturday, March 16, join nationally acclaimed storyteller, Connie Regan-Blake for a one-day workshop to explore and develop storytelling skills. The focus is on gaining confidence in speaking publicly and learning skills that support and encourage the storyteller in you.
Participants will draw on the 5 senses to engage your listeners and discover your innate capacity as a storyteller. You will also practice deep listening skills as a path to letting go of nervousness so you can be present and in the moment while in front of people. And learn how to ‘embody’ stories while cultivating and enjoying the bond that forms between teller and listener – all in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere.
Welcoming, powerful and fun, these teachings can be useful in the corporate world, with colleagues, family and friends, and on stage. ‘Storytelling’ has become almost a buzzword in the worlds of public relations and business.
This very old form of communication is finding new applications in our modern world. Come see how storytelling can support your life and your work. This is a great professional development opportunity, as well as just a fun way to spend a Saturday.
This workshop takes place on the top floor of the Chamber, at the Lenoir-Rhyne Center for Graduate Studies at 36 Montford Avenue in Asheville. Please visit www.storywindow.com, or call 828-258-1113.
