Fight, Flight, or Freeze
The body has an automatic network designed to protect us from threat or danger. This stay-safe system is also amazing fodder for personal stories. Were you a deer in headlights when you should have run for the hills? That eighth grade fight in the girls’ bathroom—did you start it?
Relax in the comfort of the Dreamland with a glass (or two) of wine as we welcome a group of handpicked storytellers who are ready to let their cortisol-inducing tales flow for you and you alone (well, you and 300 of your closest friends).
