Transforming Pain to Gain

a part of Deanery IX's "Wellness and Spirituality" Series

      

Sheffra WilliamsSaturday, February 18, 2012
Presented by Sheffra Williams

Host: The Rev. Carolyn Estrada

Church of the Messiah

614 North Bush Street

Santa Ana, CA 92701

Healthy Snacks: 12:45 

Program 1:15-3:45 pm

 

In this highly interactive workshop, Sheffra uses the power of storytelling to transform the physical and psychic "pains" in our lives into advantages.  As she says, "when you change your narrative, you change your life - even though the facts may remain the same."  With a session that is "99 percent audience participation," as Sheffra works with us to develop our stories, we'll experience the transforming power of a "told" story.  As she explains: "Storytelling is all about the importance of having someone listen to your truth, then share the meaning it made for them.  What the listeners see in the story frequently includes strengths about the teller that the teller does not even see".
