Workshop Description 

If truth is stranger than fiction, how do we incorporate that strangeness into a worldview that allows for it? Solving a life equation is best done with a small world/big picture orientation. This workshop will walk us through the process of orienting ourselves to living and sharing our own stories, bringing idiosyncratic experience into the realm of the universal.
