Join us for a two-part workshop where you will explore your inner landscape through the art of storytelling. Leah Lamb, known storyteller and performance artist, will lead you through this experiential and interactive workshop. Carefully crafted exercises and activities will provide you the time to tap into your creativity, and to reflect and explore your personal story through writing, sharing, and performing. The mountains and rivers of Colorado will be our guide as we explore the connection to the natural world and your wild nature. No writing or storytelling experience necessary, and all forms of storytellers are welcome.

Days 1-3, Part 1, will explore developing your creative process, addressing and playing with the inner critic, the of use nature to inform our storytelling, and using symbols and metaphors in story.
