The Story You’re Not Telling: How Shame Stories Can Hijack the Narrative of our Lives
Saturday, 3:00pm | Portal
Story wields immeasurable power in our lives. We get dealt certain facts, some traumatic, and we build story around them to help us make sense of what happened.
If there is a story that you are not telling anywhere to anyone in any way, it islikely because you’ve attached shame to it. Shame kept in the dark grows. It metastasizes. Shame stories do the same thing. They become bigger, more powerful. They inform the decisions we make and the people we bring into our lives.
The story you’re not telling is running the board. It’s likely in charge of your whole life.
In this interactive session, participants will seek to identify those stories and release them.
You either own your story, or it owns you. Period.
