Date & Time:  Sunday, April 18, 2021, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

What will be happening:

Four intrepid storytellers from our FUUSN community will tell a short story on the subject of “Replenishment.” The stories promise to be humorous, heartfelt, and personal.  We have invited storytellers who represent various age groups to add diversity to the event:  Aimee Lambert, Wendy Schwartz, Todd Farrell, & Eric Moore.

Eric Moore, our emcee, has participated in The Moth storytelling events for years. He has won two Moth StorySLAMs in Boston, and twice appeared in the Boston Moth GrandSLAM. Before that he was a professional stand-up comic and actor.

At the end we’ll have time for audience questions and reactions.

Everyone is invited to this zoom presentation—tell your friends too! We will be sending out zoom info as we get closer to the event.

Thursday, May 20, 2021 – 3:00 -5:00 pm.  “Reconnecting to Community”

Presenter: Karen Edwards, Ph.D., Therapist, teacher, storyteller and workshop leader. The goals of this workshop are to enhance relationships with self and others in community and to decrease loneliness. Karen reminds us that like a vitamin deficiency, a human contact deficiency weakens the body, the mind and the spirit. This workshop addresses the healing of one of the diseases of our time, the fragmentation of the world into isolated parts. She will take us into explorations of how to build friendships and resilient community. This will be interactive through reflecting on personal experiences and practicing skills in break out rooms.
