Incredible space and morning to tell stories- 💜the inaugural storytelling event was held in a beautiful garden that allowed us to connect, ignite, transform and release our stories. 💙

We learned the power to tell your truth, ask for help, and make one good choice to change your life. ❤️We were safe, real, authentic, and vulnerable- 💛the stories were raw, honest, and heartbreaking- yet powerful, deep, and life-changing.

💚 at Storylab we love circles, cakes, and connecting. A big thank you to all who supported our inaugural event and to our storytellers Mike Greeff, David Shepherd, Desiree-Anne Martin, and Natasha from U-Turn who shared so courageously.

It was wonderful to support U-Turn our charity of choice.  U-Turn is involved in rehabilitating and reintegrating the homeless. They have crafted innovative skills based programme designed by occupational therapists, that is Christian faith-based including Bible Study, Biblical counselling and Fellowship, with long term results for rehabilitation and reintegration. Six months after graduating from the program, more than 80% of participants remain employed and sober.

💗 We all left feeling completely different and ready to release.
