LIFE STORIES: Memories of Love, Action and Thought

“We are all the same, that is human, [but] in such a way that nobody is ever the same as anyone else…”
Hannah Arendt

Inspired by the work and thinking of 20th century writer and philosopher Hannah Arendt, and by Diving for Pearls, a book about Arendt by Kathleen B. Jones, this workshop will guide participants as they write and share stories “to know precisely what the past was, to [explore] this knowledge and these memories, and then to wait and see what comes of knowing and [remembering],” as Arendt put it.

Through writing prompts and facilitated exercises, we will celebrate what Goethe called “life’s labyrinthine, erring course,” as our narratives “recall significant events in our lives by telling one story among many, so that they can live on.”

Come prepared to compose, share, laugh, ponder and discover your inner writer.
