Discovering Transformational Stories
August 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT
Some stories are well-suited to being told as “transformational stories” – stories that invite the audience to meaningfully change. Transformational stories can be the basis for healing rifts – whether within us or between us. However, to be “transformational,” it must be the right story, at the right time, for the right people, and told with an open heart.
In this 90-minute class, we will examine stories to discern what about them may allow them to become transformational. Stories will be provided for review, but students will be expected to provide the “bones” of 1-2 stories they would like to submit to this examination.
This class is co-taught by Jim Brulé and Maja Bumberák. Jim is the founder of Transformational Storytelling, and Maja is a renowned storyteller, singer, and educator based in Budapest, Hungary.
Their biographies can be found here.
A tool for analyzing stories in this manner will be taught and used in the course.
The standard course is $50; participants who register for the complete course ($75) will receive a recording of the class for one month of personal use, as well as the handouts used in the class.
