In this time of global unraveling, millions are losing hope that a regenerative, meaningful and just future is even possible. But those of us connected to GEN not only know a better future is possible, we’re living it now! Developing and sharing our personal narratives of living from a place of love can inspire others to help manifest this (re)emerging story of our being in community with each other and all life.
So, what’s your story?
- What is something you wish everyone knew about your life or community? Why?
- How did you find your passion or purpose? Why is it so meaningful to you?
- How have you struggled with bringing your vision into reality?
- How has living in community transformed you, surprised you, or challenged you?
This course is for anyone who…
- is curious about the art and practice of storytelling
- is wanting to delve into, craft, and share meaningful personal stories
- would value working with an intimate cohort of peer storytellers
- understands the power of storytelling and would like to become a better storyteller
Through six 1.5 hour sessions we will…
– Create a safe online community to support our story crafting and sharing
– Learn about why stories are so important in this time of transition
– Explore what makes a great story that can impact others and the world
– Develop, revise, and share a meaningful personal story
– Learn audio/video recording/editing using the online platform WeVideo
– Craft our “digital stories” with narration, images/video, and music
– Share our stories on GEN’s YouTube channel with each other and the world
Facilitator: Daniel Greenberg, Ph.D.
Daniel has been involved in the ecovillage movement since 1988 when he pursued his doctoral thesis on “growing up in communes.” He then spent a year at Findhorn where he was inspired to found the non-profit Living Routes, which partnered with UMass-Amherst to run study abroad programs based in ecovillages around the world. Daniel has lived and worked in over 100 ecovillages around the world, is co-founder and past Board Member of Gaia Education, and served as President of the Global Ecovillage Network from 2015-2019. He is now inspired to bring forth stories that can help put “flesh on the bones” of the New Story.
