Storytelling Workshop: Our Worst Critic
Let's face it, we're not always very nice to ourselves. We tend to be hypercritical and filled with false beliefs about our own character and ability. How can we "reauthor" the stories we tell about ourselves?
This workshop is part of David Labi's regular series of dynamic, interactive, and intimate personal-growth workshops at Full Circle.
Drawing from years of working with organisations and individuals on storytelling, David skillfully blends design thinking, narrative therapy, gameplay, and sheer creativity to make the discussion of personal topics become easy, fluid, and fun. His facilitation also ensures internal and external ice is broken – giving people the opportunity to mix with other participants on a far deeper level than the usual Bru-ha-ha.
