Description

What will you gain?

This three day workshop will give you:

  • An inspired start to 2018 - giving you a road map and process to achieve your goals

  • A technique to access your subconscious, address unresolved issues and unleash your creativity

  • A new understanding of where story gets its core power and how you can use it

  • A new network of fellow travellers

  • An increased sense of owning the narrative of your life

  • Inspiration! (to breathe or put life and spirit into the human body)

Change the narrative of your life in just 3 days

The biggest story in our lives is the one we tell ourselves about ourselves.
Unfortunately, this narrative is nearly always given to us by someone else.
The You Are Your Story intensive experience will help you become, once again…
the author of your own life.

Stephen May

About Stephen May:

Stephen May is a world-leading expert in self-exploration and development through story structure. He has over thirty years of experience as an actor, writer, director, film producer and teacher; working with the likes of Warner Bros, Film4, Working Title, Castle Rock, HBO. etc.

One of Stephen’s major passions in life and work is investigating the relationship between myth, story and personal growth. His own “story” has been shaped by: a childhood of constant movement (over 30 homes, 14 schools); sports success cut short by serious injury; the euphoria and trauma of video-journalism in war zones; the considerably greater euphoria and trauma of marriage, separation and three children!
And he feels he might just be entering Act 2…

THE POWER OF STORY

AYRES ROCK

What is the Program?

We are all obsessed by “stories”. But why? Where do they get their power?

Over three intensive days, Stephen May will help you understand the source of that magic and guide you to reframe the narrative of your life, using great movies for reference! The power of myth, rites of passage and three-act story structure carry thousands of years of wisdom.

And using the magic of expressive writing (speed writing with rules), participants will narrate their personal experience (your personal writing is for you only, it is kept strictly confidential). As you begin to fictionalize your story, moving from “I, me, my” to “she, he, we” you will feel the exhilaration of change and empowerment. You will feel the sense of owning your story again. YOU are your story. This 3-day programme will help you write a good one!



With his YOU Are Your Story® series of workshops and texts, Stephen May guides us to channel the wisdom of the greatest stories into a new, healthy narrative that we choose to write for ourselves. He guides us to reframe our “flaws” and “mistakes” as the very things that make us most human, most beautiful.
