Creative workshop: The Story of Song

  • Multipurpose Room 1, Kathleen Syme Library and Community Centre 251 Faraday Street Carlton, VIC, 3053 Australia (map)

So often we are our own worst critic. Do these narratives sound familiar to you?

  • “Why did she pick me to lead this project? I don’t think I’m experienced enough for this.”
  • “OMG I sounded so stupid in front of that guy. I wish I didn't say that, I’ll try not to speak up again.”
  • “No wonder I didn't get enough likes on that photo, I look so chubby.”

We all create stories about ourselves, many of which are untrue and unhelpful. When your critical inner voice takes over, you may feel like you’re never good enough. Maybe you constantly compare yourself to others, and lose sight of what makes you exceptional.

In this Beyond Story workshop, Psychologist and Chief Story Hunter, Christine Yeung, we’ll use song to connect more deeply with ourselves, and each other. Research suggests that self-expression can be a powerful way to retrain your inner voice and reshape your inner narratives.

Experienced StoryArtist Sherry-Rose Bih Watts will share her story of finding a means of self-expression through singing and using it to overcome her self-doubt. In a fun, creative and nurturing space, we’ll join together in song.

We’ll also explore strategies for understanding and letting go of our judgmental inner voices, so you can build self-compassion and reconnect with the unique beauty within you.

 This workshop is for everyone – no vocal skills needed.
