Special Workshops

Facilitating Storytelling Workshops- training for leaders, educators, and change-makers (virtual)
November 10 & 17 @ 9:00 AM PT – 2:00 PM PT
Two-day intensive training

Storytelling has the power to change our communities and transform the lives of those around us. Creating spaces for people to share and listen to one another’s stories can open up routes to inter-group dialogue, community building, and ultimately social change. Capital Storytelling has spent years developing methods to open people up and help them find and share their stories.  We are now offering training for community members (leaders, educators, and change makers) to give them methods for facilitating storytelling workshops. In this intensive 2-full-days class, Executive Director and founder of Capital Storytelling, Dr. Lisa Cantrell, will lead you through methods for facilitating storytelling workshops based on those we use at Capital Storytelling (and that we have used in private as well as corporate workshops). She’ll also share insights gained over the years to help you create a brave and compassionate space for story sharing.



Celebrating the Mother: a storytelling workshop for first and second generation immigrants (in person in Sacramento)
November 15 @ 6 PM PT 
90 min workshop

Connection to the natural world is celebrated across cultures, and storytelling is the most naturally human thing we do. In this 90 min workshop, we will define moments in our lives when we felt connected to the land – whether it is this land or the lands of our ancestors. We’ll reflect individually on our own stories and then share with others in a small group (for those who choose to do so!). Together, we’ll celebrate what it means to be people on this planet.
