If you want your stories to help springboard our community and nation to civil and true conversations which can lead to reconciliation, you will want to taking “Healing the Sting.”
If you want to move your stories to being instruments of change, if you want a way to share your voice where you can be heard and want to take your stories further, then you will want to take “Storytelling Next: Taking Your Story Further.”
In all of Sheila’s classes, you will hear stories, create stories and have the opportunity to present.
