Elaine Muray from Embodied Voice Story Arts

Looking for a unique way to celebrate a life milestone? Stories connect us to each other in our communities of friends, family, and work and play. It is through narrative that we learn about the defining moments that led a person down his or life path. It is said you never truly know somebody until you know their story. Through consultation with those in the honoree’s circles of influence, storyteller Elaine Muray will uncover those defining moments, craft them into a meaningful script and perform the material at your event.

Gathering for a family event? Hearing family stories helps us to lift up what we share and honor our differences. In this workshop, Elaine will prompt participants to find their own personal stories and shared oral histories. Participants will learn to discover common themes in their stories and how to take anecdotes and turn them into fully developed material.
