FACILITATED
DIALOGUE

Our team of facilitators focuses on creating "Soul Stories Magic" which is the experience of feeling fully connected to your community of participants after discussing vulnerable and sometimes difficult topics. We put thought into every question, activity, and minute of our workshops to make sure our community gets the best possible experience.

COLLABORATIVE

STORYTELLING
EVENTS

We work with local artists, storytellers and non-profits to create transformational storytelling experiences that often humanize social issues and help us dig deep into the imperfect experience of being human. We work closely with all presenters to help them craft and share a story or performance that they feel proud of and will positively impact our audience members.
