I use the ancient craft of storytelling to enable individuals and group to reflect positively upon the critical issues of their life. I truly enjoy the opportunity to share this craft through storytelling in a variety of environments where people are seeking intuitive answers to difficult and challenging questions about their lives. These places include formal (school, colleges, etc) and informal educational spaces (community and healthcare centres, hospitals, etc), where I run exciting and dynamic experiences in the form of workshops, courses, seminars.
Everyone who has participated find that their unique voice and value explodes and expands, and immediately apply this embedded learning to their unique and beautiful lives. What I do is created for the individual and group to experience, empower and create environments for peaceful co-creation and co-existence.
