There's something sweet and attractive about being around people who are people, you know? As I matured with the events of life, I realized this desire to be close to authentic people, in an attempt to find my own authenticity. Authenticity, however, is not as simple to achieve as turning the light switch on and off. Do not.
Authenticity is an achievement, it is the result of a work of self-knowledge. The more I know myself, the more I discover what I am and what I am not, the more I develop.
In parallel, I realized that working with tales and stories was providing an increasingly varied internal world. Somehow the narrative structure of the tales and stories, the contact with different experiences and, consequently, different perspectives and angles of a story, brought internal movement to me.
The story we tell about ourselves has power, it ends up defining us. What is the story you are telling yourself? Are you the one who tells your story or are others telling the story for you? Rescuing who we were and understanding who we are, honoring our history, celebrating our moments and putting our learnings in a tale to be returned to the ocean of stories is what I propose in the Biographical Tales Workshop.
By not telling our story, others will be able to do that and they will probably tell it in a way that we wouldn't. In this workshop, I invite you to appropriate what makes you human, what makes you human, and to be the protagonist of your own history.
