It’ll happen when you’re not looking for
it. . . .And don’t mention it to anyone else
unless you find that they’ve had adventures
of the same sort themselves. What’s that?

My Bedtime Stories group offers a soothing path to deeper self discovery. Well written stories evoke a response of the heart: “I know, I’ve been there, I feel that way sometimes. I used to be afraid of that. I used to imagine that.” This is a unique space for you to lose yourself in a children’s story, and safely share your personal journey with fellow listeners.

During each group session you may be entertained, soothed, enlightened, inspired, and possibly awed by the connections you make with your own experiences. Bedtime Stories is a resting and recharging place for effortless self discovery. I will begin each group by reading you a story. After the story reading, I will gently encourage a sharing of what each group member is experiencing; feelings, thoughts, dreams, or memories.
Groups will last an hour and a half, and will be held twice a month. The fee will be $40 per session, with 8 sessions, paid in advance ($320).
Group format: 7:00-7:15 pm, get settled in. After a brief relaxation and grounding exercise, I will read a story aloud. The group process generated by the story will continue until 8:45. We will complete wrap-up by 9:00pm.
