The Story That Your Illness Tells (Public Talk and Workshop)

Mar. 24 @ 7:00 pm - Mar. 26 @ 4:00 pm

March 24th, 2023: The York Theatre “The Cultch”: 639 Commercial Drive, Vancouver, BC
March 25th and 26th, 2023: SFU Segal Building: 500 Granville Street, Vancouver (ground floor), BC

Illness of mind or body can be seen as random misfortune or a genetically decreed calamity. While the latter does occur, it is rare. In most cases there is nothing pre-ordained about a disease, nor is it a stroke of bad luck. One way to see illness is as dynamic process, a manifestation of a life lived in a certain family and a certain culture.

In other words, there is a story behind it which, if understood and expressed, can help move the process towards healing. In this interactive workshop, two veteran medical doctors, both trained in modern Western medicine but who have both studied alternative ways of understanding how we become ill or healthy, will lead participants to gain active agency over their health through the power of narrative.
