Play, Write, Breathe!
The world is a chaotic at the moment and there doesn't seem to be a resolution in sight.
In times of chaos, we may feel overwhelmed, pulled in many directions at once, feel an urge to act (and confusion around what exactly to do), experience a generalized anxiety, or simply feel helpless.
One way to navigate these times is to reconnect with the deep sense of purpose and value that we each carry simply by virtue of being human.
By connecting with our values and exploring what it means to set boundaries, both personal and interpersonal, we're not only accessing powerful tools for ourselves, we're also creating a bit more harmony in the world. And the world could use a bit of that right now.
Only July 23rd, we'll explore these ideas through a combination of play, creative writing, and breathwork.
It's going to be a fun, creative, and transformative afternoon. Hope you can make it!

What We'll Be Doing
We'll be playing together, doing some writing exercises, and exploring breathwork. For more information about breathwork, please check out the Eastside Breathers website.
The themes we're working with can be challenging, so we've designed the workshop to be fun and encourage a sense of play, openness, and discovery. The afternoon will be highly experiential. In other words, less of us talking, more of you doing.
Questions? Great! Get in touch using the form below and we'll get back to you in a jif.
Arrowyn Ambrose, founder of Story Tribe, grew up a performer and writer. Actively participating in acting and dancing throughout her life she studied dance at UCLA before pursuing an acting career in Hollywood. It wasn’t until she discovered Long Form Improvisational Games and Personal Storytelling that she found her true voice and calling. When combined, games and writing had an unusual effect on her. She found the words falling onto the page almost faster than she could type them and realized a sense of worth from reading them out loud to an audience that had always eluded her. She began volunteering with The Young Storytellers Foundation in 2004 and became their Program Director in 2007. Weaving games, council, personal narrative and performance became a passion of hers and the results were undeniable and universal. Arrowyn is passionate about creating community and inspiring our humanity.
