These workshops will be held outdoors at a private residence around a firepit on a paved patio. There is ample space to spread out. Bathroom is available indoors. And yes, there will be marshmallows.


People have been telling stories around a fire for as long as there has been fire. Join us for these advanced workshops in a special setting, where we will dig into your stories, put in some hard work, and help you overcome your own unique challenges. We'll take it to the next level with focused strategy and goal setting.  This is an advanced level class for those with some level of experience telling their stories on stage or at work.


Each session will be a mix of short exercises, conversation around topics chosen by the group, and sharing of useful tools, techniques, and philosophies. Each session will also include the opportunity for individual participants to share a story with the group and receive supportive coaching from the instructor and constructive feedback from the group. 


Each session is a standalone workshop. You are welcome to join us for one or both if you'd like. 

Workshop size will be kept to 6 to insure that participants receive maximum individual attention.


In the event of especially rain, we'll move under the covered patio, which will result in no fire for the evening. In the event of especially severe weather, we'll poll the group to either sub in a Zoom session or an indoor session with cracked windows, ventilation, masks, high powered HEPA medical grade purifiers, and a little spacing.
