Storytelling Workshop with Mark Yaconelli
March 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
“You will find Mark Yaconelli to be a wise and patient teacher with a lovely sense of humor. And if you’re anything like me, you’ll find direction and validation and a lot of truly great wisdom in his words.” —Anne Lamott, NYT bestselling author
There is a depth to story that we rarely take time to ponder, let alone to tell and hear. Story is how we transform pain. Story is how we make something useful out of the absurd. Sharing stories is how we make a home within ourselves and one another. In this interactive presentation, author, spiritual director, and veteran storyteller Mark Yaconelli will help you uncover, craft, and share the sacred stories of your own life. Based on his new book, Between the Listening and the Telling: How Stories Can Save Us, Yaconelli will engage participants in a series of reflective exercises and facilitated discussions designed to bring about a deeper appreciation for the sacred diversity of our human experience.
