On November 5, the Global Red Circle is having its first storytelling event that revolves around one theme, grief. This will be a transformational storytelling experience for those navigating life after the loss of a loved one. The evening will start with a light meal so everyone can relax and get to know each other. The stories will be celebrated through song and the evening will culminate with a post-performance discussion with the storytellers and special ritual to honor those who have passed on.
There are many reasons to join us for this experience. Come because you want to hold the space for two courageous souls standing vulnerable while they share their stories. Come because you are interested in processing and healing your grieving heart in a unique way. Come because you yearn for deep connection with others who are on a similar path. Come because you are in need of catharsis in a caring and compassionate environment. Come because you have fallen in love with storytelling and want to experience the art form on a deeper level.
This is a warm, welcoming, heart-opening gathering. Come dressed comfortably as you would for movie night at home or a casual gathering of treasured friends. Bring that special friend and support each other through this journey. Check out Kim Andrews’ blog post about her experience with telling her grief story the first time. Tickets go on sale Saturday, August 27, 2016. Sign up for updates now!
Testimonials From: Praise for “Women Standing In Truth – A Storytelling Experience” March 12, 2016
“I’m so proud of all the women who shared their triumphs over issues that could have had devastating consequences. These are stories that every woman needs to hear and celebrate.”
— Connie T.
“There comes a time in every woman’s life when she has to stand in her truth and fully own her experiences and her responses to them. It was such a privilege and a gift to witness women sharing that moment.”
— Kimberly B.
“The courage of these women to stand up in front of a room full of strangers and remove their veil was incredible. It was obvious this was not staged, these women were raw and it stirred something deep inside of me.”
— Sheila P.
“Not a dry eye in the house. Tears of joy and celebration of breakthroughs and empowerment.”
— Kat S.
“Inspiring. Courageous. Authentic.”
— Kimberly B.
“The women on the stage came from various backgrounds and circumstances. They could have easily played the victim, and blamed others for their life. Instead, they summoned the courage to fly above circumstances and shared lessons learned with the audience in an authentic and empowering way.”
— Cyndi M.
“I identified wholeheartedly with the earth-shattering stories of each woman…Their gutsy stories touched my mind, body and soul. I could easily place my size eight loafers in their shoes. And by the third hour of the event, the deepest part of who I had been denying or hiding for decades was given permission to be exposed and to be gone, forevermore.”
— Margo T.
