Workshop: A Story of Discovering Unique Beauty through song

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

Do these narratives sound familiar to you?

  • “Why did she pick me to lead this project, I don’t think I am experienced enough for this“

  • "OMG I sound so stupid just now 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 in this photo, my god, I look soooo chubby.”

You are at times very harsh on yourself, aren’t you? Indeed, we all do that. We live our lives through the creation and exchange of narratives which told by others and by ourselves. When your judgemental inner voices take over, you disconnect with your unique beauty -the good in you.

Research suggested that there are ways to engage with these inner voices more effectively so that you are able to respond more meaningfully to the world within and outside you.

About this workshop

Our StoryArtist Sherry-Rose Bih Watts, shares her experience of being a young woman finding a means of self-expression and beating moments of self-doubt through song.

Through hearing her story and singing this song together, join her and Chief Story Hunter Christine Yeung to gain new insights about your narratives that you have been telling yourself. We will also explore strategies to get unstuck with these judgemental inner voices and learn to get-back-in-touch with your good within you.

You will take away a self-love pack which included tips and goodies that are handmade with love from us to you.
