Working Creatively with Stories: Peter Pan
In this interactive workshop, we journey deep into the story of Peter Pan to explore the story using tools from the Story Arte creative toolbox. Gestalt therapy, art therapy and/or Psychodrama will be accompanying us on the voyage.
We will be working with an abridged oral version of this famous story written by Sir James Matthew Barrie and sharing Nikita Gill’s thoughts from her book Fierce Tales – Poems & Stories to Stir your Soul.
We will be exploring the back stories of some of the characters and relating some of them to the enneagram. This workshop is experiential, and participants will be invited to explore the story in depth and engage actively in the activities.
Stories have been with us since the very beginning of humanity when we gathered around the fire to listen to myths of creation to connect us with our inner selves, our clan and the universe. Stories have accompanied us through dark times, of war and plague and they are here to accompany us now, with their medicine, in this time of uncertainty.
