War and Peace
According to Orwell, words, properly arranged are as good as ammunition. We all know the pen is mightier than the sword but violence is only half the story. Words also have the power to inspire and heal. When we tell tales we create pictures in our mind’s eye. These are pictures that can reach deep into our unconscious.
Fun and Therapy?
Story Jug will help you manage your feelings by providing a safe and supportive space to explore them. Story Jug can help you become more accepting of yourself and situation using powerful exercises and techniques to convey the essence of your story.
Story Jug is accessible to all. We hold workshops:-
in libraries, schools, theatres and church halls
in companies and organisations where staff are challenged by change and high pressure workloads
online, in video group conference groups providing access to the isolated, the disabled and others who can’t get out easily.
in residential homes for the young and elderly
and for a wide range of support groups, e.g. carers, cancer support, PTSD groups, health support groups, recovery from substance abuse…
No-one is asked to share what they create in a workshop (poems, stories, films, drawings) unless they want to. Story Jug workshops are ‘enjoyable’ and ‘therapeutic’ but they’re not ‘therapy’.
