Rona Leventhal, Storyteller

If you communicate, you tell stories!  

Come to the hills of western Massachusetts and learn the Art of Storytelling from a seasoned Performer and Coach in this three day intensive.  We will delve into exercises in improv theatre, movement, visualization, writing, discussion and imagery, all the while applying our new skills, knowledge and inspirations to crafting our story for telling..

Each year people have been gathering at the Institute to learn the art of effectively expressing meaning through storytelling. Each year has been rich with images formed by words and movements wisely chosen over the course of the three days.  Each year our presence and intentions to create together form a community amongst us!  And we have a blast!

Who should come?

Teachers (Massachusetts teachers can receive 20 PDP's!), librarians, educators, therapists, theatre artists, ministers and rabbis, corporate executives.and consultants, dancers, speech and language therapists......anyone who speaks with people or communicates for work!  And many simply come for personal growth and a chance to treat themselves to a weekend away from their usual routine.  Yeah......that sounds nice!

See Web site for full details.

There will be some "off" time on Saturday to explore, practice or luxuriate in the hot tubs, swimming pool or laying in the sun!

Stories for work, Stories for Life!  Hope you can join us.........
