story bowl comes to Reno

September 09, 2013


Last year my friend Andrea shared a vision with her community.

She “imagined a group of women (who didn’t know each other) around a table, eating beautiful food, and passing around a bowl filled with story prompts. One by one, they would tell an impromptu story about their lives. It would be connecting, and nourishing, compassion building and healing”.

I loved her vision so much that she has allowed me to share it with you, here in Reno.

What thrills me about the idea is that I have been craving real connection with other like minded women and know there must be others out there that are too.

If you know me, you know, that I love hosting people and celebrating with others. So the combination of a celebration + a story thrills me.

Just like Andrea, I also believe in the power of storytelling.

For centuries people have passed down their histories and stories by talking and communicating with others in their communities.

Author Philip Pullman said: ” After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”

A storybowl is no exception. Andrea has been holding them for a year and I am honored to continue her tradition in Reno. In Andrea’s words: “It is just the right mix of fun, connection, deep nourishment, compassion building and healing.”

Please join me for a bowl.
