Guilt, Shame & Storytelling

Sep 28, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Referencing stories, Bishop T.D. Jakes once said, “There’s the public narrative, and then there’s the truth.” What is it about our stories that require “an edit” before sharing publicly? Two things: guilt and shame. Join us as executive storyteller/artistic theologian Alexus Rhone facilitates a guilt, shame and storytelling workshop, leading us to unpack our lived realities and loose the shackles of shame.

Snapshot of “Story vs. Testimony: a guilt, shame and storytelling workshop”
* “Shame & Storytelling” introduction; “Guilt vs. Shame” (what’s the difference); roots of shame; story crafting exercise
* “Confronting Shame” – strategies to pull the weeds of shame from your life’s garden; story crafting exercise 2
* “How To Tell Shameful Stories To Audiences Hungry For Uncomfortable Truths”; connecting your stories to relevant audiences; story crafting exercise 3; mini-slam

Let’s heal our families, communities, nation, and world by throwing off shame and wrapping ourselves in the power of our collective stories.

Coffee/tea, snacks, and lunch will be served. TMS Workbook included. Space is limited.
