True stories about "Most Treasured Life Lessons"
SHINE storytelling event this month features stories about “Most Treasured Life Lessons.” Storytellers share their biggest revelations and aha moments – and how they became lessons to live by.
SHINE is a monthly storytelling series featuring professionals and amateurs coming together monthly to share inspiring true stories. Participants and audience members enjoy a relaxed community atmosphere, powerful and entertaining stories, refreshments, mingling, and live music. A new theme is announced each month.
Live music will be provided by Alejandra Leyva, a singer/songwriter from East Los Angeles. Alejandra plays acoustic folk music influenced by her bilingual and bicultural Mexican-American heritage. She seeks to promote self and collective transformation with gentle music about love, compassion, heart aching and heart healing.
Professional storytellers for SHINE are chosen from some of the nation’s top award-winning storytellers and writers. Amateur storytellers of all ages and walks of life also take the stage. Submissions are accepted before the event and two slots are reserved for audience members selected through a random drawing.

SHINE is produced by Jen Bloom and Isabel Storey and presented by Santa Monica Repertory Theater, Storey Productions and the YWCA Women’s Partnership.
