the living art of storytelling in Massachusetts

Summer Storytelling Institute Retreat, in Western Mass!

Third Annual Storytelling Institute Retreat in the Hills of Western Massachusetts!

Hello Storytellers!

Here's great opportunity to learn the art of storytelling, hone your skills or
simply give yourself the luxury of a long weekend to return to
"beginner's mind" and work on that story you've been wanting to learn!
Here's the info:

Immerse yourself in in the power of storytelling - as an educational tool, as a way to connect with others
on a very human level and as a tool for creative growth .... then
immerse yourself in the soothing waters of the hot tub! Or the
refreshing waters of the pool! Or the peaceful energy of the forest!

"People would be crazy not to attend - the opportunity to get taught and
coached by Rona Leventhal in a place of beauty - it's a no-brainer!"
Andy Davis, Storyteller, Workshop Participant, Director, World
Fellowship Center, NH

The dates: Friday morning, August 6 - Sunday afternoon, August 8 (three days)

Where: Leyden, Massachusetts in the Rolling Hills of Western Massachusetts (just below the VT border)

What: A three day immersion into the Art of Storytelling, physicality in
stories through improv theatre and movement, tools for improved
communication skills, application to many professions, personal growth
and FUN!

Here's some more important Info:

*Recommend this workshop to a friend or Colleague and you both get a $25 discount…
addition to any other discounts you’re entitled to!
* If you have a partner who would like to come along for a vacation without attending
the workshop, they can come for the low rate of only $185! This would

beautifully prepared meals, massage therapy on the premises upon
