Heal Your Story

Empowerment Workshop Series

Three amazing events – “Awaken Your Powerful Voice”, “Write from Your Authentic Self” and “Change Your Story”

If you want to come into balance and harmony with your most authentic self, don’t miss these three related workshops, facilitated by personal development coach, poet, and performance artist Bibi Caspari, with writing retreat producer and sound practitioner Diana Osberg.

Are you reluctant to fully express yourself?

Do you struggle to find the right words?

Does your inner voice discourage you from speaking up?

Do you long to feel more comfortable with yourself and more connected to others?

It’s time to discover and free the
powerful voice inside you.

Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. ~ Helen Keller

No writing experience needed!

Don’t worry about grammar, punctuation, or spelling. Powerful self-expression is primary. The clean-up and editing are for later.

It’s your time to discover, heal and take your own personal journey to freedom and empowerment.

You may choose to share your writing and experience with the group, though it’s not required. And sharing can enhance the healing and learning process for yourself and others. Just know that you’ll be in a safe, nurturing environment where you can be free to express yourself from the deepest level.

You’ll receive handouts that support ongoing learning and develop tools that will help you continue to heal and empower your authentic self with Balance, Strength, and Confidence.

Bibi Caspari will inspire you with performances of her original poetry. Her poems ask deep questions about key issues of the human condition. Her warmth, vulnerability and availability will draw you in and open your emotional channels to help you tap into your deepest, most vulnerable self.

She will then lead you through writing exercises that motivate you to ask significant questions and listen for truthful answers.

Learn to:

  • Shift emotional blocks
  • Create powerful breakthroughs
  • Find and develop your passion, purpose, and message – your authentic self

Express yourself from a place of vital honesty, toward greater authenticity, self-expression and empowerment.

Through my work with [Bibi] I have re-aligned with the path to becoming who I truly am. If you are stuck or lost, I can’t recommend anyone more highly than Bibi to embrace you and intuitively find the methods to unlock you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Dylan

As you write, you’ll be bathed in the haunting, healing sounds of Tibetan and crystal singing bowls, an ancient practice that is known to release emotional trauma, promote deep meditation, and improve concentration.

Diana Osberg will select instruments that best compliment the healing goals for each workshop.

Inside each of us is a natural born storyteller just waiting to be released. ~ Robin Moore

WORKSHOP 1: Awaken Your Powerful Voice – Sunday, March 4, 2018

Have you ever felt vulnerable? Of course! We all have. It feels uncomfortable, doesn’t it? And yet people respond most powerfully and openly to us when they sense we’re communicating from our truest, most vulnerable self.

Writing is not just something that happens when you type or put pen to the page. It’s a discipline that requires being mindful, observant, and truthful. It requires that you’re constantly in touch with your deepest thoughts and feelings.

It requires being vulnerable.

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” Anais Nin

Topics:

  • Observing the world around you
  • Observing your thoughts and feelings
  • Listening to your deepest self
  • Accepting and honoring your inner life
  • Connecting with your heart
  • Allowing yourself to be vulnerable
  • Embracing and letting go of fear
  • Engendering love and gratitude

Learn to organize your thoughts, identify key issues, and put your true emotions on the page. Overcome your embarrassment and communicate with emotion, power, and truth.

You’ll learn how to express your deepest thoughts and emotions in writing and tell passionate stories that connect.

“We need to look hard at the stories we create, and wrestle with them. Retell and retell them, and work with them like clay. It is in the retelling and returning that they give us their wisdom.” ~ Marni Gillard

WORKSHOP 2: Write from Your Authentic Self - Sunday, March 11, 2018

Do you want to learn to express yourself more powerfully?

Whether poetry, blog, short story, essay, or memoir, when you write, the most powerful writing is from your authentic self.

Questions are an essential part of your continued exploration and growth. It can be difficult to find answers if you don’t listen for and ask the most poignant questions.

It is through asking your subconscious mind significant questions, and listening carefully in the depths of yourself for answers, that you find your authentic self and your wisdom.

When you find the questions that are most relevant and drop those questions down into the silence of your deepest being, it can lead to potent answers that support personal empowerment.

Learn to listen deeply, and speak with power.

Express from your deepest, fullest, wisest, and most authentic self.

Encourage the heart and mind to go deeper.

Reveal passion, purpose and message and go home to yourself.

Learn to process and discover more about who you are, what matters to you, and express it in your authentic voice.

Topics:

  • Sourcing questions
  • Listening for answers
  • Emotional probing
  • Vulnerability
  • Unblock the heart and mind
  • Connect to your wisdom
  • Awaken and free your voice
  • Passion, purpose and message

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak. Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen” ~ Winston Churchill

WORKSHOP 3: Change Your Story - Sunday, March 18, 2018

We all tell ourselves stories about who we are. These stories are often negative ones that cause us pain and keep us from being our most powerful, authentic selves.

Maybe you think you can’t change your story. But guess what? You can! You can choose a more fulfilling story.

Change Your Story and Change Your Life!

Your stories are powerful and colored by your perception. They’re often more about the emotions you feel, rather than the true facts surrounding them.

Do you:

  • Make up the stories that define your reality?
  • Create myths that block you from being your best self?
  • Project negative, painful feelings on past events and hang on to them as though they are the absolute truth?

These are the stories that stop you from being your joyous, most authentic self.

“My life has been full of terrible misfortunes, most of which never happened.” ~ Mark Twain

Healing and transformation are only possible by changing your inner view. By rewriting the stories of your past you’ll learn to let go of negative feelings and empower yourself to heal.

This will help you distill meaning from memory and leave the past where it belongs, behind you.

Topics:

  • Dialogue with your inner visionary
  • Letting go of trauma
  • Obituary for your victim self
  • Creating a new story
  • Visioning what can be
  • Living in the now
  • Celebrating the new you

You’ll come away from the workshop understanding that staying present and being gentle with your inner self is the most powerful path to healing, bringing you into balance and harmony with your higher purpose.

“Those who do not have the power over the story that dominates their lives, the power to retell it, rethink it, deconstruct it, joke about it, and change it as times change, truly are powerless, because they cannot think new thoughts.” ~ Salman Rushdie

I always come away from (my work with Bibi) with some new insights and ways of looking at things… I felt lighter and unburdened…The work we did helped me feel like a new person.

Angell A.

I felt so safe with (Bibi’s) support that I was able to let loose and be fully expressive. And your notes were helpful to my processing and supported me in anchoring the experience.

Bibi Caspari

Bibi Caspari

Bibi Caspari is a personal development coach, writer, performer and workshop facilitator. Her career path includes years as a mime/dance/movement performance artist, actress and producer. Along with her studies in movement, acting and voice, she explored the human growth potential movement and personal development. While teaching, these two areas came together when she realized that people’s resistances kept them from learning. Bibi began coaching her students in moving through their obstacles. Her diverse professional background in personal development, production, writing and the performing arts has contributed to her experiential learning and broadened her perspective. She created a personal development curriculum, producing it through a non-profit organization that she founded to help at-risk people develop essential life skills that could empower them to achieve personal and professional success. More recently, she has been reviving herself as a performing artist, including performing her poetry.

Read more about Bibi…

The poems of Bibi Caspari enlighten, teach and guide her audience to open their hearts and tap into that universal energy present in life, like a channel for the divine. With her gestures and her intonation, she radiates power and wisdom, supporting her audience to connect to their rich inner abundance.

Sujata Dube

When Bibi performs her poetry, her ability to put movement to her words is remarkable. There is a power, rhythm and fluidity to her visual expressions, so organic that it’s as if she can’t hold it back. When we make a visual metaphoric discovery, we own it, so when we watch what Bibi does, we feel a level of intimacy rarely experienced between artist and audience. Calming, thought provoking, inspiring and thoroughly entertaining.

Bill Boyle

Screenwriter, author of “The Visual Mindscape of the Screenplay”

Unbound by traditional rhythm and rhyming, Bibi Caspari’s freeform poetry is still somehow profoundly melodic. Recited and interpreted through cadence, expressions and movement, her performance is dramatic. And, like her life coaching work, Bibi’s authentic, inspirational speaking is transformative.

My first sound bath session was AMAZING. I have never experienced anything like it before. The sound just resonated throughout my entire body and I couldn’t believe how soothing and relaxing it could be.

Gloria Inman

I cannot even begin to express how much I loved the live sound bath that Diana has provided for us. I have never experienced anything of its kind before. I was so relaxed that I even eased into a restful sleep. I felt the vibrations of it and could even “see” colors with my eyes shut. It put me into a phase of relaxation that I truly needed in order to destress from life in general. I cannot thank Diana enough for helping make that happen with this beautiful art of ‘painting colors with sound.’

Jackie Ryczek

Diana accompanied one of my yoga classes with a sound bath. It was an amazing experience for me and my students. I look forward to working with her again!
