Transformational Storytelling has two missions: to help transform the world through stories and to help storytellers become transformational storytellers. Our school for transformational storytelling is in its sixth year.
We work with individuals, groups, and communities around the world promoting the growth of spirit that comes from living with an open heart. We do not promote a particular tradition or ideology – our fundamental assumption is that we must truly appreciate the richness of our differences and the joy of our commonality to lead a full life.
Journey into Dying and Living is a series of four, six-week programs each addressing a different aspect of dying and living through storytelling. We have a number of Short Courses that are designed to hone your skills as a storyteller. Of course, there is a constant flow of events and workshops designed to both open your heart and broaden your skills. And if you’re ready – consider individual coaching for storytelling – with a transformational direction. So – dig in!
Maggid Program – Individualized schedule
This is the latest version of a two-year program that teaches the art and craft of Transformational Storytelling. Originally accredited by the National Storytelling Network, it has been enhanced by lessons learned during the pandemic. It now incorporates new insights gleaned from the deeper multicultural work of the Diving Deeply series and even richer experience gained through lessons learned from an extended faculty.
The Maggid Program provides Jewish students with the opportunity for s’micha – ordination – upon completion. Non-Jewish students will receive a certificate of completion; all students receive highly individualized content and pacing.
