TimeSlipsTM Creative Storytelling
Through open-ended questions based on a photograph or other prompt, Sarah, as facilitator, invites spontaneous responses from participants. All answers are acceptable and woven into the narrative. Sarah echoes and writes down all responses verbatim, reading them back as the improvisational story grows.

Sarah immediately created an environment that was warm and sensitive to our group’s specific needs. Her technique helped foster communication and brought out the creativity and fun in each and every one of the participants. Our group was so excited to see how our story turned out!

The group brings people together. And it's helped me. It's hard for me to say everything I want to say. But through you, I'm learning. -- Irene G., storyteller
TimeSlips is most effective as a series of group or individual sessions that build over time to a special event honoring participants' creativity.
