The bane of religion today is close-mindedness. We demonstrates how to extract the best of traditional Wisdom stories to create new but ancient paths for inspiration, growth and faith development.

part 2. (45 min) Learning to access and tell our own “wisdom” stories

Each of us is in truth a survival story and we are heroes in our own movies. In this workshop we learn to recognize the beauty, uniqueness and differing gifts of our own stories and risk sharing them with others.

Participants will learn
1) appreciation of the universality of wisdom stories in literature, children's fables and bible stories
2) the process and power of accessing their own "wisdom" stories
3) acceptance of the differing gifts and energies in each other and the "wisdom of the crowd."
