January 11-13, 2019 Becoming the Vessel
Theater of Witness Training

New Dates!
Friday January 11- Sunday January 13th 2019

Jefferson University, Philadelphia

As part of our HeART Stories program, we offer a few free spaces to community members. This intergenerational course will focus on strengthening and expanding the practitioners’ ability to bear witness, ‘find the medicine’ and work creatively with stories of suffering and transformation. Students practice deep listening, and how to become vessels of steadiness, compassion and wisdom, for themselves as well as for others. In order to create a safe environment in which to do this work, most of our practice work will involve creating theatre from students’ own life stories both individually and in partnership with one other class member.   For those who successfully complete ‘Becoming the Vessel’, ‘Entering the Gate’ will be offered later.
