CBD 2017: Using Stories to Deepen Your Presence to Life

Monday, November 6, 2017

12:30 pm

TBD

Sponsored by:
Health Improvement Program, Stanford Storytelling Project, WorkLife Office, and the HELP Center.

Like meditation, stories and storytelling have long been a vehicle for creating greater presence to ourselves, others, and our world. In this workshop you’ll explore how to turn your encounters with stories into contemplative practices, with many of the same benefits of mindfulness and compassion practices.  Join us to experience how to use stories and storytelling to reflect deeply and create more intimacy in all of your relationships.  

Instructor: Jonah Willihnganz, MFA, PhD, has taught literature and writing at Stanford since 2002 and is Director of the Stanford Storytelling Project, an arts program that sponsors courses, grants, an acclaimed event series, and the award-winning radio program State of the Human.  He is also co-founder of LifeWorks, a new initiative at Stanford that helps students cultivate natural human capacities such as courage, resilience, compassion, and deep attention.
