Deborah’s workshops are unforgettable! By design, every gathering of women through the Cameo Life Stories program is enlightening and uplifting. In a loving and accepting environment, women sift through their greatest treasure--their life experience. And safely and comfortably, they share that treasure. Each woman is honored, each respected. The miracle of our human condition is celebrated--and the stories take wing. Everyone is encouraged to be authentic, to search for her personal truth and to reveal only what feels appropriate. The meeting room invariably hums with the murmur of memories and revelations. All the best human gifts are shared--laughter, questions, attentive listening, empathy, knowledge, tears, friendship. Compassion for ourselves and others. And side by side, the life story and the wisdom grow.
Everyone is welcome--introverts and extroverts, talkers and listeners, writers and non-writers, younger and older. Most workshops are women only or men only, to encourage people to open up.
Deborah and staff lead one-day and two-day sessions that give you a strong start in the Cameo Method. They teach writing and memory retrieval techniques, review publishing options and detail opportunities for sharing and archiving your story.
Cameo Life Stories workshops are offered during the summer at Maidenwood, an 80-acre retreat with a spacious Gathering Hall near Maiden Rock, Wisconsin, just an hour southeast of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. During the winter months, workshops are scheduled in Phoenix, Arizona, and in various areas of the U.S. (See Maidenwood.net)
