Inspiring growth and change through storytelling

Discovering Paradise


This workshop takes a particular method of understanding, questioning, and imagining new paths to stories that are meant to be told orally. In the workshop, Jim presents the model (based on the PaRDeS model of text study), and then works with the participants to apply it to a rich story. This work is done both in full session and in breakout sessions.
