Using the Storying Experience Card Set to accompany Creativity and Therapy
These cards were made through body community actively resisting privileging head/idea/concept and invite you to engage with them in body guided ways - a chance to get into conversation with the many stories that run through and around you.
These cards invite you to engage with them, handle them, move them about, arrange them until they are in a form that, for you in that very moment, feels satisfying or somehow ‘spot on’ in relation to your experience, what moves and resonates with body community and provides a sensation that allows you to settle into exactly what you are doing and committed to in that particular moment.
These cards wish for you to be curious, playful and adventurous but not to push, bully or edit yourself with a harsh critical voice - or at least get to know and get into conversation with those voices through creative forms. These cards are designed to be used to engage in slow and expansive enquiry to generate storytelling of close nuanced personal experience. It's about noticing multiple stories emerge and become more visible, accompanying them in ways that they can be heard - especially the quieter ones that might get overlooked at other times.
Included exercises / guided audio
The Card Set is made up of 65 (A6) printed cards and includes suggested exercises / guided audio for engaging with the cards.
The questions and exercises offered alongside the cards is a melting pot from Poh's personal and professional experience and process - learnt with and from others throughout 20+ years of offering social work practice, narrative therapy and creative consultation.
*Please note these cards do not replace meeting with a mental health practitioner and are meant to complement and generate alongside therapeutic and/or process work.
