Bio
Sheila Rubin is a lifelong storyteller for adults and children, now teaching Embodied Life Story workshops for adults at her Berkeley studio. She also teaches Healing Shame workshops for therapists in Berkeley and around the world.

Some years ago, back in the 1980s, in Portland, Oregon, she performed her amazing hour-long "Wiggle Dance” performances for 2- to 5-year-olds, which kept children and families riveted and engaged with original music, storytelling and magic at libraries and the children's museum. Then in 1992 she moved to the San Francisco Bay Area to become a drama therapist. She performed for children at libraries and began deepening how to tell stories. Then she created the Embodied Life Story Process, a theater for shy people that weaves together personal and family story, improvisation, myth, Jungian dreamwork, writing, and drama therapy through embodied storytelling. In these 10-week or weekend workshops, Sheila guides people through a process of discovery that culminates in a performance for an invited audience. Her students find it an incredibly powerful, transformative experience. A lively storyteller, Sheila has created Embodied Life Story performances for presentation at drama therapy conferences around the world and was a keynote speaker at the 2012 Play Therapy Conference in Romania. She has directed over 25 full-length self-revelatory performances for CIIS Drama Therapy students’ productions as the capstone process, and hundreds of mini self-revelatory performance vignettes in her Embodied Life Story workshops and at conferences.
