Change Your Story: Transform Your Life — 2017-11-28 thru 2017-12-12$89 — Face to FaceView Details

3 Tues., 6-8 p.m., University Center Rm. 209. Current brain science tells us that how we think, how we feel, and the stories we tell creates our personal reality. What if you could change a story from your past? What story would you choose? What if you could create your future story? Would you? The human brain is hard-wired for STORY. We think, imagine, and retrain information in narrative or STORY form. In this writing workshop, narrative consultant Jenifer Strauss will guide you through her Turning Points Personal Narrative Process to help you identify the pivotal events that have changed the course of your life, show you how to change the stories from your past, and intend the future story you wish to live. No prior writing experience necessary.
