DECEMBER

Fri – Sun, Dec. 12, 13, or 14, Doug Lipman will be available for coaching, individual or small groups. He is working in Virginia and will be driving home to Massachusetts, so anyone along the route who may wish to work with him should make contact. You can schedule hourly or for a half or full day, or even the weekend. This is a rare (these days) opportunity to work locally with one of the best storytelling coaches. He has expanded his storytelling coaching to include marketing help, and story work in a variety of specific settings – business, religious venues, schools of course, and has also developed workshop materials on creating stories from images, creating personal stories, living your artistic vision and more. Check out his website if you haven’t recently - StoryDynamics.com.
If you are interested, please contact Doug directly at dlipman81@earthlink.net If enough people are interested, people can come to him in the hotel where he will be staying, or if anyone has cat-free space to accommodate Doug for a night or two, or space for the coaching, let him know.

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.comUsing 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.
