Land & Story for Educators & Healers

Agraria Center for Regenerative Practice 

Monday, June 27, 2022 through Tuesday, June 28, 2022
9 a.m.-3 p.m.

Learn to use narrative and story in educational and healing settings, guide dynamic personal narrative that can be staged to process trauma and drama, and create stories that guide us to the right relationship with the land. Participants will take a deep dive into the landscape as they practice effective techniques such as story gathering, land-based activity reflections, the story form report, theater games, and more to incorporate into their own life and work. Participants will leave with a portfolio of their own learning and receive a certificate of completion.
