SPIRITS OF THE NIGHT WORKSHOP
Meets three consecutive Mondays
Sept. 14, 21 and 28 from 7:00 - 9:00 PM on ZOOM
Remember back in your pre-teen or early teen days- when your parents or guardians first let you start venturing into the world with your friends? Those shady moments that you’re now past the statute of limitations on with your parents, pranks, questionable decisions... they all make a good story.
Come on over and tell us about your shenanigans. We’ll tell you about ours!

MyPath Bibliotherapy Storytelling Workshops encourage and create ‘liminal’ space in the creative process of restructuring your stories into a piece of performance art. Through this process you become aware of The Five Layers of Story in a safe and supportive environment while you take ownership of your story.
Each MyPath Bibliotherapy Storytelling Workshop introduces a new layer and transforms your perspective of stories you have held frozen and unchanging since the event occurred in your past. Read on to learn more about ‘liminal’ space and available workshops then reserve your place in this transformative experience.
On a quest together, we will enter into Liminal Space... a passageway, in which, we will emerge. Similar to an artist creating a new piece of art...a painting, sculpture, poem or story... they begin uncertain of what the final output will be; yet proceeding with a vision, hope and confidence that the piece will be finished and shared with the world.
Facilitated by Roger Batton, this layer of MyPath Bibliotherapy Workshop requires each participant to meet on three consecutive Tuesdays for two hours in the evening on Zoom.
Participants will receive a copy of the Storytelling Workbook by mail prior to the workshop to use and keep as a reference source.
During your participation in Zoom, do your best to eliminate distractions in your participation space. This will allow you and others to focus on the lesson and freely interact with other participants.
Specific assignments for additional Zoom break-out sessions will be made at the end of each of the first two Zoom meetings. Participants will schedule a mutually agreed upon time and day for one-on-one Zoom session with a fellow participant to share story progress between group sessions.
A Zoom Storytelling show will be scheduled for all participants upon completion of the coursework, at which time a Certificate of Achievement will be awarded along with One (1) Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
Focus on authentic, first person experiences rather than pure fiction.
Stories are targeted for a seven-minute delivery time.
Be mindful when developing your story content. Hate speech, discriminatory speech about race, religion, culture, gender or identity is not allowed.
If at all possible, share your story with a MyPath facilitator for input before sharing with the entire group in the final meeting.
Participants are expected to share respectful and positive feedback within the MyPath “Holding Space Agreement".
