Transforming monsters

Master class med Laura Simms
LAURA SIMMS

Laura Simms er kjent for sitt sosiale engasjement og fortellerprosjekt blant voldsutsatte jenter på Tahiti, barnesoldater i Uganda og gatebarn i Romania. Vi har gleden av å invitere til deltagelse i master class med en verdens mest spennende fortellere og store pedagoger, Laura Simms.

 

Hver deltager skal i løpet av dagen utvikle sitt eget monster og en mektig fortelling om hvordan denne forvandlingen har kunnet skje.

 

Laura presenterer innhold og prosessen slik:

Through a step by step method of working with a traditional tale as template, and mindfulness practices that uncover presence, we create two stories: an imaginative narrative and a personal story. We expand our ability to find fresh solutions, unhooking us from habitual patterns of limiting self storytelling, and deepen our facility to listen and engage in the world. The workshop combines story listening, creative writing, dialogue and dyads, with contemplative exercises, and discussion.

Hvordan bli en forteller som åpner for endring og medfølelse?

 

Laura Simms utdyper dette slik:

The process of engagement through storytelling, when understood, is the catalyst for changing minds, opening hearts and protecting the essence of mythic perspective that connects us to ourselves, one another and the natural world. We will work with a series of potent activities that reveal the profundity and skillfulness of genuine storytelling, imagery and the unique structure of a storytelling being told and heard.
