StorybowlDC started as an experiment, born from hilarious "Get to Know You" questions at a bridal shower.
What is your most embarrassing moment?
The chooser of the prompt passed, face aflame as she silently recalled her moment, but the chick next to her was ready. She had a mortifying (drunken) experience in college, where she had been unable to control her bladder. Her story, complete with a back alley scene and an interruption by her lover, had us roaring in laughter. Her risk, her vulnerability, and her ability to laugh at herself bonded us + opened the door for more sharing. More connection + a vibrancy of life.
That weekend prepped us to celebrate the wedding together and a magnificent celebration it was.
Celebration. Sharing. Bearing Witness.
Peals of laughter + howls of delight.
Since then, StorybowlDC has been a witness for stories from a devastating divorce to childhood dreams that want to be born again. This is a space of sharing. Of speaking our truth. Of bearing witness to one another and gaining wisdom from another's trials and successes. We need you. We need your story. You deserve to be seen.
We'll start with a rooftop Happy Hour lightening round. You pick a prompt and tell us the first thing that comes to mind.
Then, we'll commune together in the dining room. Story prompts and questions will be in a bowl in the middle of the table.
This evening is intended to be spent in your comfort, sharing stories + connecting with other women living in their whole-hearted story. This group will have 8-20 women (because intimacy = juicy) with a waitlist(because we know, plans can change).
