Your Story as Your Gift

A Morning with Jaune Evans


Event Details


Create a story from the heart of your life in three hours, written or spoken, a story you can give as a gift to someone during this holiday season. Share your love and special insight about a favorite place or inspiring person, an event that changed your life or your community, a story told to you by the land, the sky or the ocean. Bring forth a wild tale, the story of a dream, a family memory handed down from generation to generation. Offer your life-saving story as a “a lamp, a lifeboat, or a ladder” (Rumi) to your children or grandchildren, your sweetheart or best friend. Remember your Ancestors, telling their stories as you remember or imagine them. Give your story as a rare gift of heart and soul.

Cancellations: No refunds for cancellations made 7 days or less before the event date. Prior to 7 days before an event, there is a $15 processing fee per ticket for cancellations.
