The Story Exchange

This workshop is centered around two of the simplest—and most powerful—things we can do as humans: be vulnerable enough to tell a very important story from our own lives, and respectful enough to own someone else's. Participants will be introduced to the global organization Narrative 4 and dive into its trademark story exchange. The session will end with a discussion of practical ways to apply this empathy-building method.
