Over the last two and half years, Randy Newswanger and Phil Porter have offered over 200 Big Body Stories classes on Zoom.

As a “grand experiment” we are setting up four dates in October when we will livestream these events on YouTube. Thanks to InterPlay leader Maryellen May for initiating this idea and helping get it organized!

You are invited to witness these events live on YouTube! The videos will also be posted on a special Big Body Stories YouTube channel for easy viewing at any time. Each story is about 5 minutes (we ring a bell!) so the whole event would be about 30-45 minutes.

Along with Randy and Phil three or four other storytellers will be in the group, so there will be five or six stories. In a regular class, before we each do a story, we do some warming up, I Could Talk Abouts, and DT1s in pairs. We will only be live streaming the series of 5-minute stories (this is why the streaming part begins at 35 minutes past the hour.)

The events will be casual, emphasizing InterPlay’s easy and accessible methods of storytelling and the power of regular folks telling their stories. We have found these sessions to be profound, moving, amusing, personal, and insightful, so we think the experience is worth sharing with others who might just want to witness.

NOTE: The links below were updated on 9/20/22. They are different than what we first publicized.
