SANCTUARY EXPLORATION MODULES [6-weeks]: take us inward to discover our stories. Each Sanctuary workshop takes us through the chakras of the body. These modules are self-discovery journeys, where we mine the stories that are living in that part of the body and energy system. Each Sanctuary module is supported by guest teachers who bring unique expertise to broaden our perspective and skill set. We will engage in a dynamic creative process to compost, transmute and heal while revealing the hidden gems of your life experience.
STORY SKILL BUILDING MODULES [4-week workshops]: allow us to integrate our discoveries and practice our craft. While you harvest the content for your stories in the SANCTUARY modules, you will focus on the craft of – creating and telling – the story in the SKILLS modules. We’ll concentrate on story development, the writing process, how to work with and manage an audience, and fine-tuning our performance skills. In our final module of each skills module, you’ll have an opportunity to participate in a performance for our module.

A Special Invitation from Leah Lamb, MSW, Transformational Storyteller, Founder and Principal Instructor of the School for Sacred Storytelling

Storytellers hold the keys to thriving through the initiations of life.

In many ways these are miraculous times in which such diverse peoples with different origin stories, different belief systems, and different values form a multi-cultural society.

At no other time have people experienced so much transition at such a rapid pace, from technology to climate change to the appreciation of diverse identities.

As storytellers we know this universal truth:

Every ending leads to a beginning.
And every beginning emerges
from the ashes of an ending.

As we are tested by these times, the ancient stories provide a blueprint, a place of solace and respite. They provide the threads that weave us together. When we add our stories to the greater tapestry, we foster the evolution of our species.

When you step onto the path of the Sacred Storyteller, you say yes to becoming an elder. You don the archetypes, becoming the dream weaver, the visionary, the healer, the wisdom keeper.

Every generation experiences its own initiations. Story will guide you how to integrate and alchemize these initiations into potent medicine to be shared.

The ancients agree, the world was sung, spoken, and chanted into existence. This wisdom-keeping is a key to understanding humans’ unique role as creators on the planet. What will you create with your voice? What world will you weave with your words?

We are living through one of the greatest initiations on our planet. The stories we speak into these times, and about these times, will nourish and guide generations to come. Your voice, your heart, your spirit, can speak to and call on fear, anxiety, division… or speak to and call out the best parts of humanity to prevail.

I look forward to welcoming you into the next cohort of Sacred Storytellers and thank you for bringing your stories to our community.

The nature of this program invites you into the depths of your consciousness, to wander the wilds of your inner landscapes, and to shine light on the darkest corners of your personal story. And to find beauty, grace, and wisdom, all along the way.

Story Ceremonies And Workshops

Where stories come from remains a mystery.

Some will say stories come from the earth speaking out loud, others will say they are whispered by the ancestors, and others will speak of stories that rise from within our bones.

The relationship between ceremony, ritual, and story, goes back to the roots of the very first expression of theatre, and with the actor, Dionysus.

Each ceremony will be guided by a specific story, and that story will provide an invitation for you to explore how that story is — or isn’t– being lived through you and the life you are choosing.

Over the module of the 19-months of the curriculum there will be workshops and ceremonies you can choose to participate in. A workshop is something you may be familiar with, an all-day affair that combines learning, practice, time to create, and time to share and be witnessed.

In story ceremonies, we step out of the pedestrian, and into the mystery of story, into a sacred space, outside of time, and has a more open and spacious nature of being with story.

When registering for the full curriculum, five 1-Day Story Ceremonies or Workshops are included in your tuition. You can also register for each story ceremony on its own.

Immersive, Experiential Full-day Events

Full-day story ceremonies and workshops will provide intensive journeys engaging ritual and performance in community. These explorations will focus on a particular story that shapes our shared mythology and our view of ourselves. We’ll dig deeper into how this tale may be rooted in and informing your own story.

Over the course of the program, you select 5 of the 8 workshops and ceremonies  to participate in. The full-day workshops will incorporate time to learn, create, share and to be witnessed. In story ceremonies, we step into the mystery of story, into a sacred space, outside of time. We will play with story, try it on and turn it inside out.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there different ways for me to participate in the curriculum?

Experience with teaching in person and on-line led me to create a 20-month curriculum that consists of 11 self-contained learning modules. Students can participate in the entire 20-month experience, receiving the optimal benefits, or they may join one module at a time with unique, stand-alone workshops. 

The Speak Your Spark program begins a new rotation every two years. It is possible to join the community at any point during our journey if there are spaces available in the individual workshops. However, enrollment will be limited, in order to preserve the intimacy of the group. If modules are filled by participants of the 20-month curriculum, then individual modules will be closed for registration.

What if I just learned about the program and I want to jump in?

The program rotates like a wheel. You can join the 20-month program at any time.

Can I attend just one module?

Yes, you can attend one or more modules. You receive a discount when you register for more than one module at a time.

What if I miss a module?

All modules are recorded and will be available to watch within 24 hours.

What if I am an alumnus and I want to repeat a module that I already participated in?

Welcome home!!! You’ll receive a 50% discount when you repeat any module you took previously.

Are scholarships or financial aid available? How do I qualify and apply?

You can apply for a scholarship here. We have limited spaces and prioritize elders and youngers. There is also an opportunity to do work-exchange.

What if I'm unable to complete the full 19-month program?

There are limited spaces in the 20-month Speak Your Spark program. The program requires a high level of commitment that opens the door for deeper breakthroughs to happen. It is important for students to be fully committed to the entire program and to plan ahead to make space and time for it during the 20-month period. That said, Leah recognizes that abrupt, significant life changes can occur, and the team works with any participant in such a situation to make the best decision under the new circumstances.

What comes after the Speak Your Spark program?

There is a facilitator training program in which you can continue your work with story as a tool for healing. Inquire to info@leahlamb.com for more information.

What if I have questions about whether the program is right for me?

We recommend you attend or watch the recording of the Introductory Session which will provide an overview of the curriculum and program format. You are also invited to attend a live Master Module where you can ask specific questions. You may also Contact Us via the online form with any other questions.
