Speaking slowing in Saigon
I opened my eyes in Vietnam Sunday morning to a stomach full of nerves. I heard the scooters honking outside, the vendors yelling – I looked over at Heather and thought, well here goes nothing. It was our first big workshop in Vietnam, we were going to be training 16 twenty-something Vietnamese activists on how to tell their personal story in relation to their work.
A heartwarming reaction to our Storytelling for Change Workshop!
"I am speechless about who Heather is!! It would take pages and pages to talk about her ability as a leader. She has made me Informed, Empowered, Connected, and has TRANSFORMED MY LIFE by giving me basics of STORYTELLING that I use in my daily life." - Muhammed Kisirisa, Uganda
2013 has been an incredible year here for us at the Million Person Project:
- We sold out our first public workshop
- Have been hired to hold workshops and do coaching with people and organizations we are so honored to work with like: Tenants Together, Beth Terry from My Plastic Free Life, Lauren Weiner from All One Ocean and more!
- We are currently in the semi-finals for the Echoing Green 2-year fellowship that would be a game changing step for us!
We have been so humbled by the momentum of the past few months and are so incredibly thankful to the people who are holding and supporting our vision with us. To highlight a few people who really inspire us to do this work:
Bill McKibben, Founder of 350.org
The Million Person Project is such a powerful idea--and I have no doubt that by the time its creators are done, it will be a Billion Person Project, and we'll be well on the way to actually changing this world in fundamental fashion!
Rha Goddess, Founder and CEO of Move the Crowd
The Million Person project is about LOVE and the cultivation of the potent interconnectivity that builds global community, transforms unjust paradigms, and creates a world that is more just, harmonious and sustainable for us all-how timely, how necessary.
Belvie Rooks, Co-Founder of Growing a Global Heart
As we contemplate the future and sustainability of both the Earth and our children's children, the Million Person Project is a powerful vision of hope and global possibility!
We are SO excited to work with 25 movers and shakers from around the Bay Area this weekend to help them craft their personal stories and use them to inspire the masses! :)
We can't wait to welcome change makers ranging from 20 to 65 years old, representing various different businesses and causes this weekend. We will be working with young men who have started an eco shoe company, women who are helping to launch HUB Oakland, long time educators who have started a charter school, San Francisco school board representatives, food justice activists, life coaches, social entrepreneurs and many more. We also have men and women who will be attending to focus primarily on conquering their fear of public speaking. We are so honored to get to work with each participant.
