Share Your Story On World Storytelling Day

Monday is World Storytelling Day and local author, Natalie Stockdale, is inviting the community to come together and celebrate this ancient ritual by sharing personal anecdotes on a series of topics.

“Sharing stories brings a sense of connectedness, a sense of belonging,” said Natalie.

“This is an opportunity for people to feel seen, heard and valued – it is also really good for your wellbeing and resilience.”

This is the third time Natalie has hosted one of these events, but the first time in the Whitsundays.

Natalie is the author of two books that share stories of individuals overcoming life’s challenges.

By sharing their stories, she hopes to inspire others and show readers how to build resilience.

At the storytelling session, Natalie will draw on her experience working with others to create a fun and interactive morning where people share their reflections on key topics.

The topics include light warm-up exercises, and answering questions like whether you prefer dogs or cats – she will then move on to your proudest moment and your experience with random acts of kindness, among other inspiring themes.

Celebrate Storytelling Day this Monday by attending this nourishing and invigorating event where you can meet other like-minded people and feel connected to our broader community.

The tickets are $20 cash and a morning tea is included.
