Kim Barthel and Theo Fleury are hosting a free workshop at the Globe Theatre (617 - 8 Avenue SW), which is also serving as a filmed pilot episode for a new YouTube show they will be launching. With that in mind, please note that there is a chance you will be filmed, so we will need your consent that this is okay.
The doors to the venue open at 8:15am, at which time you can check-in and find a seat in the theatre. The program will start promptly at 9am and will end at 3pm with a one-hour break for lunch at noon. Again, this event is free to attend but we require you email an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to join us as there is limited seating.
If you have never been to a Kim and Theo event, here is the best we can describe it:
Theo Fleury is a hockey legend whose life experiences serve to illuminate how resilience is possible. Kim Barthel trains therapists and teachers all over the world about making sense of complex behaviour. But you'd never see her with a hockey stick and you wouldn't see him writing about neurobiology. Or so we would have thought…
Factory workers, executives, homeless people, from Christians to Buddhists and every shade of grey and purple in between, young and old - all find something in Kim and Theo's conversations that they can relate to. The secret in the sauce, the critical ingredient that they're essentially modelling, is respectful connection. But they're both works in progress, they're likeable, they're approachable, they have humility, they're both great storytellers, they're real people. No more, no less.
