When a storyteller and a story receiver engage intentionally, openly, and honestly, the space in between becomes an invitation for the sacred, for the divine, for the supernatural to come into the midst of the exchange. There is a value and a power in our stories that all too often goes untapped. Our stories have immense potential to change our lives and the lives around us.
Come and join us at this Sip Session to be led by Rev. Mandy M. Mastros, as we identify the different facets of our own personal narratives and the value in sharing our stories, and receiving the stories of others.
Each person will have the opportunity to practice in this ‘give and take’ exchange in a new way, and to debrief with one another about their experiences. We will also discuss the individual and collective impacts of doing this well, and will think about how we can use these skills in the days and weeks ahead to develop more meaningful relationships.
Join us for this November 16 Sip Session. Reminder: Bring an open mind and an open heart. And have a beverage on-hand to enjoy a virtual toast!
