Whether it comes from a lifelong condition or a short-term but significant stressor, we all experience challenges to our mental, physical, and emotional health. As we endured the stress of a global pandemic, society got better at acknowledging the prevalence of these issues, however, stigma still exists. The more we share openly about our struggles in supportive community, the more we realize just how normal those struggles are and how telling our stories helps both ourselves and others.

Learn to share your stories of resilience to help you and others become more resilient. This is an online, live, two-session class on June 9 and 16 from 11am-12:30pm Central time. This class will not be recorded.

This workshop will include:

  • What is resilience and how can we foster it in ourselves
  • How to discover, craft, and share a story about resilience
  • Story coaching
  • Storytelling tips and tricks
  • Story prompts
  • Writing prompts
  • An optional story swap
  • A handout rich with resources
  • A community of like-minded storytellers

Join professional storyteller Laura Packer for a fun, supportive, and effective workshop on telling your stories of resilience. No previous storytelling experience is necessary, and prompts will be provided to help you find your narrative.
