Hi — I’m Peter. I’m a storyteller. I’m offering a workshop on personal narrative storytelling in Berlin. In this workshop we’ll explore how story leads to connection. The work is grounded in aspects of non-violent communication and also the work of Brené Brown. My intention is to create a story circle or story wave in the oral tradition and to work with the energy we would need to make a public performance.

I’ll help you figure out what makes a satisfying story. We’ll balance the needs of the story, the storyteller and the audience. We’ll work in pairs. We’ll tell stories. We’ll allow ourselves to be seen. We’ll deal with questions such as:

* what is a story

* what makes a good story

* the fear of being boring

This work is not therapy, but it is healing. I just came back from the Rainbow camp in Thüringen where I ‘perfected’ this workshop but I can’t wait until next summer to do it again.

Date: Saturday September 22nd

Time: 14:00–16:00

Where: Berlin, Wedding

No charge — Kostenlos

Wir werden auf Englisch arbeiten. Du könntest fühlen, als ob dein Englisch nicht gut genug ist, aber egal. Es ist interessant eine Geschichte auf einer anderen Sprache zu erzählen. Es gibt dir ein bisschen Abstand von der Geschichte und Leute haben gesagt, dass es oft einfacher zu tun ist.
