RESTORYING LIFE – A QUEST IN AVEBURY
Discover the Art and Science of Story Making
27th – 29th April 2018
Avebury, Wiltshire, UK
“Once you have heard the pulse of your deep story, it cannot be ignored”
It’s the nagging feeling in the middle of the night when you wake. The ever-present mild anxiety that you are not where you are supposed to be, or that you are walking along the wrong path. It’s the pull deep inside that tells you that you are not living the life you know you could be, not making enough of a difference in the world. Familiar? Instead of waiting, ignoring and burying these feelings perhaps it’s time to stop, listen and discover the clues that lie deep inside you – the clues that point the way towards the biggest story that you are capable of living in the world.
Are you ready to create the story you were born to become?
