The Healing Power of Stories – An Evening of Storytelling
Saturday, February 22, 2017
6 PM – 8 PM

Institute for Spirituality and Health
8100 Greenbriar, Suite 220, Houston, TX 77054

Telling one’s own story is fundamental to growth and identity. Personal stories of healing can be profound for the wounded and for the “healer”. The story goes beyond the technology of the healing arts and touches the personal, the ultimate, and the mystery of healing.

We invite you to join us for an evening of storytelling, and we hope you will share a story of your own. Use the link below to register, and include a couple sentences about the story you would like to share.

For the storytellers:

Stories should be 5-7 minutes in length, so please tailor your story within that time frame.
We will not have time for every submission. We will let you know a few days in advance whether or not you will be a storyteller for the evening. If yours is not selected this round, you will have an increased chance of being selected for our next storytelling evening.

Cost: $10
