Our Living Your Storied Life retreat workshop happens 31/8 to 2/9 at BKR near Gansbaai.
Discover your purpose, see your life as an unfolding story, and enter the adventure of becoming fully alive. How we interpret the narratives within our Life Story is crucial in influencing our life affirming energy, creativity and vitality, and countering the destructiveness and self-sabotage that can happen along the way.

We have been holding workshops for professors, lecturers and young academics in Potchefstroom (at the Sports Village where the football World Cup winners,Spain,were based), Pretoria and Cape Town. Our subject has been the use of story patterns to design lectures and presentations; enlivening, challenging and involving audiences and learners through story; and using metaphors to carry ideas.

Used in a Jeep Grand Cherokee TV advert: “You can watch your dream slip away, or you can follow it. You can walk a beaten track or follow a new path.
