In-person – Connie’s performance storytelling along with workshop ideas, on Thursday, June 23, 2022, 3:00-5:00 pm at the Center for Life Enrichment in Highlands, NC. Open to public. 

The Art & Heart of Stories: 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 from Connie Regan-Blake’s mountain top leap in New Zealand to her husband’s “Dorky Spandex vs Macho Leather” encounter on the Blue Ridge Parkway to the sparkling traditional Scottish tale, “Well at the End of the World.” 

Intertwined with her performance stories, Connie 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 connecting with staff and the public – or performing for a group, you’ll have a taste of ‘art & heart’ of storytelling.
