Life is made up of stories. From very early on, we encounter stories of all kinds: fairy tales, nursery rhymes, fantasy, adventure, and romance. Some of these stories are fictional while others are based in reality. Many of them simply retell the stories of our lives, and we are the storytellers. This Storykeepers workshop is offered to inspire you to find, tell and write your own personal life stories and to listen, respond and hold onto one anothers’ stories. 

You are invited to join us in-person or online, as individuals or with a group. Churches are invited to join as a co-hort (contact for details)


This four-part workshop occurs every two weeks, and includes the following sessions:

Jan 29:  Turning Point Stories: How Our Personal Stories Shape Us  

  • The value of sharing meaningful stories from your life experiences. 
  • Reflecting on life’s turning points offers an opportunity to see the shape our lives have taken and the possibility of seeing new ways to view the future.  

Feb 12:  Singing the Blues: Stories Shattered, Lost and Revised.  

  • Hard experiences disrupt our provisional and preferred narratives and can force us to tell the story in a new and different way. Surprisingly, sad stories of hard times can also be words of life. 

Feb 26:  Boundary Line Stories: Crossing Generational, Cultural and Spiritual Lines 

  • Old stories that are shaped and formed as our life journey continues. 

Mar 12:  Honoring the Living Story: Recognizing the Sacred 

  • Seeing the larger story in our own stories.
