Storytelling for Women
9th January 2018 or 16th April 2018
9.30am – 16.30pm
Ballroom 4, Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Golden Sands, Malta.
NO previous experience in storytelling is needed.
This is a safe space with no judgement and no pressure to do anything you are not comfortable doing.
Do you often wish you could communicate your thoughts and feelings better?
Struggling with public speaking every time you need to address an audience?
Do you feel frustrated because your full potential is not being realised?
This is a common problem but it is made worse because narratives of active, powerful women are so often hidden or kept in the shadows. So many of us try to clear time for ourselves and our personal and professional growth. And yet, more often than not, daily responsibilities take over and our plans for that extra course we wish to take or the special ‘me-time’ we were hoping to have fall to the wayside.
Whilst it’s not your fault, it’s frustrating!
Thing is, breaking this pattern alone is difficult. Sometimes, we need to join others in the process of reconnecting with a space that allows us to grow. Storytelling provides just that space.
When people come together in a circle, each equal and valued, they are able to connect and inspire one another.
I’ve created this intensive workshop, hosted in a beautiful venue with the sound of the sea in our ears, to cater specifically for women who want to reconnect with their core, their ancestry and their society. We will hear and work with stories of girls, goddesses and giants. We’ll look at old stories and new ones. We’ll see what it’s like to feel our way through new stories, making them our own. This is a safe space however! There’s no pressure to do anything you are not comfortable doing and there is absolutely no judgement. Each woman standing by others, supporting one other. No previous experience of storytelling is needed.
Storytelling for women is a space in which we discover old and new stories about femininity and strength. We take the time to identify what is blocking us and draw on stories to find creative solutions. We become our own heroines.
Places are limited so call me to discuss your interests and concerns, no pressure to purchase, of course.
The fee of €100 includes personal and group coaching, lunch, coffee breaks and a resource pack to keep you going on your storytelling journey.
I look forward to hear from you!
Embracing you warmly,

The room outside is quiet, empty even, and suddenly I am struck by the realisation that it is my voice that must fill it. I listen intently, and intensely to a story I’ve just heard. Why is it so familiar? My thoughts, feelings and memories stir. I know the story. It is my own.
Listening to a story is one thing; but telling it, is truly another. A story is told from within, supported by the pillars of your own experience, world-view, and personality. Storytelling, first and foremost, requires you to take a good, long look at yourself, at where you’re coming from, and how you are essentially connected to all that surrounds you. It is then that a story can become your own…yours enough to be told.
It was a two-part storytelling session (Points of Contact) with Giuliana Fenech that awakened this realisation within me. It became clear to me that storytelling is not simply performance. It is observation and reflection. It is the acceptance of one’s own suppressed vulnerability. It is the ability to connect. It is perhaps, due to this that I found myself utilising several of the narrative tips she provided throughout the workshop, in my own daily life. Be it when listening to the stories of others, or even when telling my own, I do so with the conviction that a common thread of understanding flows between us.
