StorySculpting™ Workshops are interactive group experiences that guide participants through StorySculpting™ exercises with the added value of sharing and building on Story in community. A group Reiki session closes the workshops for a full mind, body and spirit experience.
Each workshop’s theme is customized for the needs of the individuals and communities I serve. My aim is to create a safe and sacred space for all to feel seen and heard, to experience expansion, release and open new possibilities for themselves and their lives.
What is StorySculpting?
StorySculpting™ is the dynamic and interactive exploration of your Story, your personal narrative, for deeper awareness, healing and growth.
What is the Story of you? How did this Story come to be? How is your present day life according to this Story? What future Story is calling you and what do you need to release or transform to evolve there?
Using interactive story exploration, creative visualization and guided writing + self reflection exercises, StorySculpting shines a light on your past, explores how you experience the present and opens up a shift in awareness that leads to the conscious and transformative creation of your future.
Through this process you become intimate with all of your parts – the joyful, the challenging, the light-filled areas, the parts of you in shadow that you might hide or possibly don’t see. We work together to integrate them all, illuminating your unique Story, in all its twists and turns, as a medium of possibility for all the growth and evolution that’s beckoning to come through in your life. Your Story becomes a healing catharsis that awakens your Authentic Voice - a powerful tool that helps you connect with and inspire others.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a hands on healing practice that removes blockages and balances your energy - the life force that animates your body. It facilitates a gentle and powerful connection with self that raises your vibrations, bringing you into a relaxed and aware state of being.
It’s in this relaxed and aware state of being that you access a higher state of consciousness where healing, creation and transformation are possible.
DEAR MAMA : A JOURNAL MEDITATION + STORYSCULPTING EXPERIENCE
Your relationship with your mother can be layered, and Mother’s Day can hold different significance depending on your journey. For some it’s a day of appreciation, for others a day of remembrance, for many it’s a day of complex dynamics and emotions.
In preparation for the day, come and process with Hosanna Marshall, creator of The Open Series. Through deep breathing, guided visualization, journaling and discussion she’ll create a space for you to process and connect with the mothers in your world and the mother within. Leave with tools to navigate the day (and your relationships) with love and awareness.
Where : Dumbo House, 55 Water Street, Brooklyn NY
OPEN LINES : THE ROOT CHAKRA
Sandi Preston, yoga teacher and co-founder of And Yoga Studio, and Hosanna Marshall, reiki practitioner and founder of The Open Series, lead a seven-part series that delves into the wisdom and insights stored within the seven chakras -- the energy centers that animate our body, hold the stories of our lives, and are instrumental in maintaining mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical balance. Each workshop focuses on one chakra, creating a vivid and open line of communication to that sacred space through yoga, visualization, StorySculpting™ (writing + conversation), and reiki healing.
This workshop will focus on chakra one, The Root Chakra. We’ll explore its themes, how it shows up in life, what it looks like when it’s deficient or over-exerted. And then we’ll guide you through a deep connection and communication with your Root Chakra to bring it into balance.
Where : And Yoga Studios, 449 Nostrand Avenue, Bed Stuy, Brooklyn
STORYSCULPTING™ FOR COLLECTIVE CHANGE
A grounding exercise opens the workshop to bring us into our bodies and our breath. We then explore our individual lived experiences around a theme of social relevance to our times, exploring and acknowledging the current reality and then collectively working towards envisioning a reality that incorporates and supports all of our well being. A group reiki session and affirmations close our time together, as well as an exploratory of how this envisioned reality could be made manifest. Participants will have the opportunity to connect for continued building after the workshop.
Theme : Walking Around in My Body
