Description

Join us on this home retreat focusing on grief and loss. We will look at stories that explore ways in which we may embrace this grief, particularly our own, with intention and openness. Participants engage with the stories through creative writing, meditations, sharing, and exercises, in groups and individually.

The final session will provide an opportunity for participants to share a creative response with the group.

Rebecca Lemaire is a versatile Belgian-British storyteller and is currently based in the South of Spain. She has performed and given workshops at international festivals, in a prison, yoga schools, Tibetan monasteries, theatres, and libraries. She tells stories about grief and death to open the conversation and help with healing. She is a Reiki healer and is an active participant in the group ‘Vivir y Morir’ in Spain, in which the taboo about death is overcome through discussions, practical and spiritual preparation, movies, poetry, and stories.  In Spain, she gives introductory courses in storytelling skills for teenagers and adults in person and online. She often uses sound (Indian flute, kalimba, voice, and frame drum) to give depth to the stories she tells.

Maggid Jim Brulé is a transformational storyteller, death doula, Reiki healer, and the founder of Transformational Storytelling, of which this series is a part. He also works with organizations and communities to bring the power of storytelling to healing the fractures which so often divide us around race, class, faith tradition, and culture. Jim believes that the right story told in the right way with an open heart can heal wounds and change lives.

Transformational Storytelling, LLC
The mission of Transformational Storytelling is to help inspire deep, lasting change in individuals, groups, and communities through the power of story.

Here you can both experience transformational stories and learn how to become a transformational storyteller. We have worked with individuals, groups, and communities around the world promoting the growth of spirit that comes from living with an open heart. We do not promote a particular tradition or ideology - our fundamental assumption is that we must truly appreciate the richness of our differences and the joy of our commonality to lead a full life.

We look forward to encountering you in the future!
