Everyone has a story.
What’s Your Story is a NJ-based, charity-focused project, bringing live storytelling nights to our local communities. During these incredibly interesting evenings, you’ll have the chance to lean in as real people, from neighbors to notables, step on stage to share a true, first-person story with the room.
On June 12, we are inviting everyone, yogis and beyond, to hear some of these stories at What’s Your Story? A Storytelling Event Raising Funds for the Global Mala, a night where teachers, students, friends, entrepreneurs, and community members will tell their stories LIVE at The WhiteChapel Project.
Here are the details for the night – please join us! There is a $15 suggested donation for the Global Mala Project.
Robyn Shumer, founder of What’s Your Story
Plus you will hear from Bridget Riepl, Serena Soffer, and Regine Flimlin.

June 13, 2019 at Honor Yoga in North Brunswick
Sound Temple is a sonic sanctuary where we can remember ourselves as divine, vibrational beings and bathe in the healing sound of Tibetan Bowls and mantras. It is a sacred space to rest, renew — and to remember our luminous essence and connection with quantum consciousness. Meditating with the bowls can accelerate the evolution of consciousness by enhancing intuitive and vibrational sensitivities.
In the Sound Temple we will attune our energy bodies to the pure diamond-light transmission from these ancient Himalayan healing instruments, then chant together to clear our chakras.
It is important, in this time of outer turbulence, to connect with our inner wisdom and light. This gathering is a time to recalibrate our energy bodies to the new vibrations of awakened potential. Peaceful. Penetrating. Pure.
