In the second part of the day, the puppets were put away and Rene's box of objects were put out on a table. We then went through a series of exercises/games that allowed us to tell our own stories and witness each other's. The objects acted as powerful symbols, their placement, position and actions drawing out and holding extraordinary, and sometimes unrealised, thoughts and emotions. This might sound heavy duty but it was done in play, and so hard facts became touchable reality. I'm so glad I attended this workshop which I booked on a whim, a gut instinct. I feel like a seed has been sown and that after I graduate I now have a direction I am moving towards.
