Telling Tales

TEACHER:  Erin Oke
THEME:  Telling Tales
MEDITATION:  The Storyteller
INTERACTIVE: One Minute Life Stories
“We tell ourselves stories in order to live” – Joan Didion
Erin: Our inner narrators often work hard, writing the stories of our days in real time, explaining and concocting, making meaning from our sensory input. Tonight we’ll turn the meditative lens on the storytelling engines of our brains, notice how and where these tales get written, and if we can stop the presses for a moment. In part two, we’ll tell each other the extremely condensed version of our life stories.
