ONLINE WORKSHOP

How to use storytelling as a meditative practice​

01

So you keep hearing this word ‘storytelling’ like it’s some kind of cool buzzword in marketing. Is it?

Yes, but it’s more than that. It’s also a way of slowing down your thoughts, your fears and focusing on the HERE AND NOW so that you see the world differently. The same world but now with a sense of wonder and curiosity.

What is it about?

So you keep hearing this word ‘storytelling’ like it’s some kind of cool buzzword in marketing. Is it?

Yes, but it’s more than that. It’s also a way of slowing down your thoughts, your fears and focusing on the HERE AND NOW so that you see the world differently. The same world but now with a sense of wonder and curiosity.

Whether it is digital storytelling or creating something of impact.

Bring your questions and let’s find solutions.

Last year when the lockdown started I also found out that I was pregnant, but during the first scan doctors gave me a wrong diagnosis and said that the pregnancy wasn’t progressing and that we should terminate soon. A week later when I went back for a second test everything was fine again. But the anxiety that brought on, never left. I kept my pregnancy low key, for as long as I could be unsure what to feel.

A few months later my parents were diagnosed with Covid19 and made it out of ICU alive, again my anxieties and fear of losing loved ones escalated. Bearing in mind, there were travel restrictions and I could not fly home to see family, I would have sleepless nights wondering if I would ever make it home to my loved ones again. As my pregnancy and the pandemic progressed, I stayed isolated and distant from the community of friends who would normally have helped me through such stuff. A day after Christmas, I lost my uncle in South Africa to Covid and then a week later, my grandma losses her life to Covid19 and there were more deaths in my family the following weeks. I felt guilty that I couldn’t fully grieve as I wanted to be joyfully present in my own life because a week later, we welcomed our second baby girl into the world.

Can grief and joy sit together in the same room?

I learnt to handle my anxieties better by using storytelling as a meditative practice.

I started to feel before I could heal.

I learnt that yes, it’s okay to cry both tears of sorrow and joy at the same time as I held my newborn baby in my arms.

Whether it is digital storytelling or creating something of impact.

Bring your questions and let’s find solutions.

  • It’s for people who want to unlock their potential so that they can tell their story without the opinion of their boss or mum sitting on their shoulder
  • It’s for people who want to create something that aligns with their purpose.
  • It’s for the busy mom whose life is full of distractions and she thinks that she can’t write the book that she’s always wanted.

A whole year ago I did my first live IG chat. I got a few compliments from people who said they liked my live chat on Instagram and that it made them think of their own creativity. I guess that gave me a reason to feel like I had achieved something but the truth is, I didn’t do it for the feedback. I did it to get over my own self-doubt. For a while now I’ve been planning to launch my own podcast. But then I got stuck in the research loop, listening to countless other podcasts and consuming endless content. 

Everything and everyone inspired me. I had lists and pages of ideas and possible people to interview but somehow I was afraid to launch. I was afraid that my measly offering of content, imperfectly produced and hapharzardly packaged would not make a mark in the virtual world. I was afraid that not having the ‘right’ branding would render me a fraud. Who would bother listening to my uhms and ahs between questions. All of my doubts gave me an obvious case of ‘paralysis through analysis.’ I made countless excuses on why I couldn’t launch my podcast just yet, despite having acquired all the equipment that I needed. 

So what changed?  Join me for some key learnings from hosting my own podcast, what worked and what didn’t.
