The Deepening Retreats are a chance to immerse ourselves in the work of Intuitive Storytelling. They are open to anyone, although people who have not previously attended one of Leo’s trainings will have a One Day Intro immediately before the retreat.
There will be many opportunities to practice telling intuitive stories, both in pairs and in small groups.
We will go deeply into the work of emotional honesty, and tap into our hearts’ deepest longings.
We will explore several gateways to intuition: the body, the inner child, and more.
These retreats also offer the experience of living in a supportive creative community as we live, eat and work together for four days.
Each participant will get direct coaching from Leo, in one to one sessions or while telling to the whole group.
For people who haven’t worked with Leo before: Tuesday 17th June 2014 at 6pm
For everyone else: Wednesday 18th June at 6pm
Sunday 22nd June at 4pm

Feedback from Past Deepening Retreats
Leo Sofer is a heart-warming mix of a humble teacher, a powerful storyteller and a compassionate human being with a true longing to reach out to his listeners and convey meaning and love through the stories he receives. In the ongoing workshops on intuitive storytelling splendidly and caringly lead and facilitated by him, he is part captain, part co-explorer in a true voyage of exploration into the realms of the unknown and the unseen.
As a professional storyteller with a longing that echoes his own, I can’t stress enough how invaluable these workshops are for me and the development and tuning of my craft and my connection to the vast landscapes of symbols, myths and images that we all share on a deep, deep level. The workshops are intensely meaningful for me, both as a human being and as a conveyer of stories. Well, not that there’s a need to separate the two. The telling of stories is intrinsic to being human. The main question is: What stories DO we tell? And how do they affect our world, both inner and outer? Through Leo’s workshops, I am strengthening my bond to the stories that are told from the heart. The stories that mend and the stories that reveal.
We need those stories.
