Untold Stories Project is returning to Toivo! Experience a powerful way to heal and transform in connection with others.
Seven storytellers will sit in a great circle with the audience to share their experiences of pain, trauma, addiction, and so forth in a supportive and loving atmosphere. Through connecting with the audience, it is hoped that our storytellers will find their own paths towards growth and healing.
Doors will open at 12:30 pm and we will begin promptly at 1 pm. Please arrive before 1 pm to get settled in.
- 1 pm: Cacao (Optional and $7 fee associated)
- 1:15 pm – 2:15 pm: Guided meditation and sound healing
- 2:15 pm – 2:45 pm: Authentic games
- 2:45 pm – 4:45 pm: Storytelling
- 4:45 pm – 6 pm: Potluck, drumming and yoga
Cacao is an unprocessed chocolate drink. Drinking cacao releases endorphins, the “feel-good” hormone in the body.
Authentic Games reveal your authentic self in a structured, fun way in connection with others. By engaging in Authentic Games, we see what we have in common with others and we are reminded that we’re all in this together.
If you would like to participate in the potluck, please bring a dish or dessert to share for serving 6-8 people.
To help us make this an environmentally-friendly event, bring your own reusable plate, utensils, and cup.
People are not required to stay for the entire workshop. However, we will be closing the circle during the Authentic Games (2:15 pm – 2:45 pm) and Storytelling (2:45 pm – 4:45 pm). New people can’t join during those times and will have to wait until we open the circle, but people can certainly leave if they need to.
Suggested donation is $5 to $25, but nobody will be turned away. The cacao has a fee of $7 to cover the cost of ingredients.
We will have seven storytellers sharing 15-minute-long stories. Do you want to share your story? Contact Kristen at 860-455-3384 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Laura at 860 296-2338 ext. 104.
