Sun, Mar. 8.  Laura Simms, who will be in town telling at the Grapevine, will also conduct a workshop, MYTH AND MEMOIR-  Harvesting memory into story, at Jane Dorfman’s house in Bethesda. There is space for about 15 people. The cost will be $100. Let Jane know if you might be interested in attending. dorfmanjo@gmail.com Using a traditional tale together as a touchstone for inspiration, we will explore how to find an individual, mythic, personal story that needs to be told.  Each participant will create the seeds of a true-life story conjured from recollection.  We will be dreaming into image and language to uncover the essence that shapes the heart of our story.  Our focus is on presence, fresh language, the space between and reciprocity.  The difference between the work we do on a story for ourselves and the way we tell a story for others will guide us.   The workshop is for beginners as well as experienced tellers, also lovers of story in different ways for performance, healing, leadership, or transformation. There will be time for discussion and lots of on the spot suggestions for each teller.   Dress informally: we will have some basic movement. Bring a journal so that you can do lots of spontaneous writing and taking notes.
