“Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can’t remember who we are or why we’re here.” ~ Sue Monk Kidd
From ancient times stories have been how we learn who we are, where we come from, where we might go.
They’re handed down through myths and at our grandparents’ knees. Children are story makers. And active story participants. What about adults?
When our stories are shortened, condensed, lacking detail—think Twitter— we can be in danger of forgetting how rich in story and myth our own lives are.
Spend time with Beverly Voss, LCSW, poet and InterPlay teacher to explore and enliven your own stories and see how they fuel connection with others.

Beverly Voss, LCSW,
is a poet, artist, and retired psychotherapist. Her 35 years of work with adult survivors of trauma led her to look deeply at how creativity can help the healing process and sustain the mental health of caregivers. She teaches wellness workshops that address compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma. As a writer/artist, she also teaches Creative Journaling and leads InterPlay groups. InterPlay is a joyful, creative approach to life that uses improvisational forms—dance, song, storytelling—to enhance the experiences of participants. She particularly enjoys bringing these forms to volunteer work at The Austin Clubhouse and to Texas women’s prisons.
