Tools Beyond Talk: Embodied Storytelling as Community-Based Healing
Friday, April 30, 2021
1 to 4 p.m. ET

Story telling is healing. Story telling creates communities and bonding through hearing, listening, seeing and sharing. Yet we can learn to unpack the gifts of experiential story telling and improvisational theater to use in a variety of therapeutic settings, including psychotherapy, coaching and teaching.
This three-hour online training workshop introduces simple embodied forms of improvisational expression and deep listening based on the method of Playback Theatre, a method of honoring stories in a group and often experienced as therapeutic by participants. Instructor is Chris Fitz, M.A., founder of River Crossing Playback Theatre in central Pennsylvania. Three CE, psychodrama and Act 48 hours.

Retrieving the Treasure – Returning to Serve, Heal, and Transform the Wasteland

Our 2018 series, which has used myth and the Journey of the Heroine/Hero as a model for healing and transforming ourselves and our world, culminates in this final three-day workshop, which focuses on the Return of the Heroine/Hero.

During phase three, we again draw upon action methods and expressive arts, including the Sociometric Wheel, to help us explore:
• How the Heroine/Hero, who heard the Call and travelled the Journey to retrieve the Treasure, must Return home with those transformational gifts;
• How Global Citizens and Social Artists can nurture community, age consciously, share resources, and actively support the empowerment of all beings;
• The power of joining with kindred spirits in a compassionate community of support, inspiration, encouragement, and celebration; and
• A ‘winter’ of self-care needed to ponder and integrate transformational experience.

Participants will have the opportunity to:
• Identify and reflect upon the gifts they’ve received on the Journey – their Treasure;
• Interact compassionately with others in understanding how they might individually and collectively explore what it means to be Global Citizens and Social Artists;
• Access roles that can deepen their understanding of and experience with action methods and their use; and
• Reflect on how their learning might be incorporated personally and/or applied professionally after the workshop.

Though helpful, it is not necessary to have attended the previous two events. Indeed, as multifaceted beings, in one area of our life, we may be hearing a Call; in another, we may be experiencing the Journey; and in a further area, may be striving to integrate and apply new learning – the Return. The focus of this workshop is on the Return, but the overall heroine/hero’s journey remains the context and will be incorporated into the workshop.

Time: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. each day
ABE Hours: 18
