Storybook Workshop: Ages 7-100

Bring your child, your grandma, your best friend, your coworker. Renata will guide you through the adventure of keeping your very own storybook. It's not about writing your story, it's about exploring and capturing it in your own unique way. And every week the focus will be on a different topic, so you can come back again and again. Each of us has a one-of-a-kind very important story; what would the world look like if each of us dreamed big and believed in it? Let's start with you and the ones you love.

$20pp. 2 hours. Registration required: FriedaB.com

STORYBOOK TOPICS: Aug. 7 or 10: "Who are you free to be?". Aug. 16 or 17: "Don't waste the struggle". Aug. 21: "Taking care of each other". Aug. 30 or 31: "Belief is what fuels story". Sept. 4 or 7: "Seeing things differently". Sept. 13 or 14: "You matter, you belong".

 

Dream Boards Workshop: Ages 7-100

In this workshop, Renata will walk you through the process of creating a Dream Board - a visual collage to remind you to stay true to yourself, inspire you to follow your story. We will provide all the supplies. Just bring yourself, your coffee, your child and/or your best friend, co-worker, neighbor, mom... and look forward to two glorious hours devoted entirely to encouraging the story within.

$25pp. 2 hours. Registration required: FriedaB.com

 

A Different Kind of Book Club: Ages 21 + Up

We take great joy in seeing adults discover deep meaning and discussion in the pages of our books. So much so, we've created our very own Wednesday night book club (and you don't have to read the book ahead of time)! Renata will lead the discussion, focusing each week on a poignant theme related to a different Frieda B. book. For parents, educators, caregivers... the topics we explore can help you consider and navigate the stories within the little lives you help to lead. For individuals, friends, family members - adults of any age... it is never too late to nurture your own story, and the stories of those you love. We'll do that here.

$30pp, includes signed copy of book. 2 hours. Registration required: FriedaB.com

BOOK CLUB TOPICS: Aug. 8: "Who are you free to be?". Aug 15: "There is no story without conflict". Aug. 22: "How caring for others is caring for self". Aug. 29: "The power of belief, in self & others". Sept. 5: "Empathy & heroism: Seeing things differently". Sept. 12: "The significance of story & purpose".
