Exploring the Stories We Live By

What sits between the words: Listening and Sharing
Our stories – personal and collective – give meaning and definition to our lives. Whether we’re aware of them or not, they shape us: our presence, our relationships, and more.

Event Details

Date: Saturday, November 19th, 2016
Time: 9:00 AM- 5:00 PM

The Institute for Living Story at The Academy for the Love of Learning believes that the stories we live by include a range of beliefs, assumptions and patterns that define our lives and that we can each find the optimal relationship to those stories. Through transformational learning, both personal and collective, we can identify, explore, revitalize, dismantle and even birth stories that give our lives vitality and meaning and lead to a healthy, just and compassionate world.

This workshop will provide the opportunity to sensitively explore these stories to discover and breathe renewed life into them. Through partnering, a core Academy practice, participants will have the opportunity to feel how deeply listening to ourselves and to one another can bring presence and intentionality to our relationship with these stories that guide our lives, bringing new vitality and awareness.

This workshop is part of the Academy’s new Foundational Series. These five one-day workshops expand upon some of the topics of our popular Evenings of Exploration and explore the overarching question: Who Am I? You can take the workshops individually, or you can take the whole series.

Each daylong workshop is designed around an exercise from first phase of the Academy’s foundational training: Leading by Being, and will introduce you to the Academy’s learning model and some of the methods and theory central to our work. Through experience and interactive dialogue we’ll discover how the intentional practice of learning can lead not merely to the accumulation of knowledge and skill, but also to personal transformation and the expression of our innate gifts and unique qualities.

Join us for this adventure in ‘learning as a practice.’
