CBD 2015: Storytelling Workshop: Authentic Expression & Deep Listening

Stories and storytelling have long been a vehicle for creating greater presence to ourselves, others, and our world. In this workshop you’ll explore how to turn your encounters with stories into contemplative practices, with many of the same benefits of mindfulness and compassion meditation practices.  Join us to discover how to use stories and storytelling to reflect deeply and create more intimacy in all of your relationships.  

Anna Deavere Smith - Letter From a Birmingham Jail

Actress and playwright Anna Deavere Smith performs the landmark text of the civil rights movement known as the “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., written in the heat of his fight for equality. Ms. Smith collaborates with world- renowned violinist Robert McDuffie and pianist Anne Epperson to create an “epistolary occasion” that shares the power and timeliness of Dr. King’s call to action.

Anna Deavere Smith’s residency is copresented by Stanford Live, the Office for Religious Life, and the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education.
