About the Event

The stories that we tell shape our lives as much as they come from our experiences.  Listeners are invited to  come along on a laugh-out-loud and remarkable storytelling journey.   Intertwined with her performance stories, Connie Regan-Blake will  generously share ideas and tools she has developed and learned  throughout her trailblazing storytelling career.  Through partner exercises and  a 'walk through memories', you will enjoy exploring events of your own  life.  Utilizing 'deep listening,' she will guide you in experiencing  how the 5 senses and the 'colors' of the moment bring a story to life  and connect you to your listeners.  Whether your interests lie in  telling stories to family on the front porch, or more effectively connection with staff and the public or performing for a group, you'll have a taste of the 'art & heart' of storytelling.

Location:  CLE Lecture Hall
