“The Universe is made of stories, not atoms.”
 - Muriel Rukeyser

We often hear the phrase “You are not your story!” and with just a little reflection we know that it is true. Yet, stories can also point the way to self-knowledge and bear witness to acts of heroism, transformation, and true love. They can awaken the desire for knowledge and truth, arouse the sleeping giants within us and, perhaps most important, make us laugh at our foolish antics and grandiosities. In fact, with an attentive heart, hearing stories can change your life.

Please join us for tales of the great masters that provide humor, direction, and good company for the journey.

Friends and family are welcome.

Tickets are $20, which include refreshments, and are available online at our website and in the Registration Office. You may register here. Special Events tend to sell out quickly, so it is suggested that you register well in advance to secure a seat.
