On Friday, 15th September, participants from the business world were inspired by Mary Alice Arthur's ”Collective Story Harvest” workshop. The afternoon was rich with storytelling and story listening, with each story listener- listening with a particular focus and one listener witnessing both the storyteller, the other listeners and the overall telling. Then all these “harvests” were shared back to the teller and the group in what was an enriching and empowering session.
"Mary Alice Arthur's Collective Story Harvesting workshop is a revelation. Listening is the key. She shows how to listen for magic, for the unspoken elephants in the room, for dark moments and challenges, for unexpected collaboration, for the call to leadership. This focussed listening leads to transcendent and empowering stories." Jeanne
