The Stories We Tell

personal insight workshops with

JAMIE & SARAH JAUNCEY

The Stories We Tell workshops are about making the most of yourself and your life.   They're about finding connection, direction, creativity and purpose. And they're about how telling, or re-telling, your life's stories can offer insights that allow you to move forward more easily and live your life more fully.


See below for the 2017/18 programme

WHY OUR STORIES MATTER

Our stories matter because they give us our sense of who we are. We get used to the stories we habitually tell ourselves about our lives (we use 'story' simply as another word for the way we interpret our own experiences). But sometimes a closer look can be helpful. It can remind us of just how rich they are. It can reveal things we've never seen before. Or it can make us realise we should have let go of some of them years ago.

Our workshops are all about you – and we welcome anyone who would like space and time to take stock of where they are in their lives, celebrate past achievements, explore where they're going, and look at anything that could be getting in the way. Whatever it is that brings you to us, we encourage you to be curious, to push the boundaries, to learn from one another—and to have fun!

THESE WORKSHOPS CAN HELP YOU TO:

• become clearer about what matters most in your life

• make more of your natural creativity

• learn to be kinder to yourself

• connect more deeply with the people around you

• discover a stronger sense of purpose

• live your life more fully and authentically

"We are all storytellers—we make stories to make sense of our lives. But there must be someone to listen. If you can't tell your story you go mad."  


Steven Grosz, The Examined Life

'The Stories We Tell workshops with Sarah and Jamie have been fundamental, indeed critical, to my discovering my true purpose in life and to truly getting a sense of self. I have enjoyed and been stretched through the different levels of their workshops as well as literally basking in the sunshine of their teaching and facilitation in Sardinia. Since then I haven't looked back, discovering and committing to my true spiritual path as well as discovering a creative side I had only dreamt of (OK, I have vivid dreams!). I believe a Jauncey workshop should be part of everyone's journey of self discovery. If you are at all curious about life and your part in it, past, present or future then sign up - awaken your mind, heart and soul."

Steve Coulson, Business Coach


"These courses, these facilitators have taken me to new places - physical places and places in my mind. Beautiful, inspiring , colourful places. They have freed my mind, body and soul. Shown me there is another way to live. Opened up my horizons in all sorts of ways. They have led me on a voyage of discovery - in the world and in myself, where I have rediscovered some glittering, precious things that I love and enjoy right here and now. Things like writing, exploring new places, talking with different people, opening my mind and my eyes. Enabled me to breath fresh air, to become more alive. Through them I have made many new friends and connections. Like minded people who are creative and imaginative."
