Fran Yardley

Fran Yardley leads the Storytelling Workshop.  For over 25 years she has told stories and conducted  storytelling workshops nationally  and has served as a bereavement group facilitator.  As a co-founder of the original Adirondack Arts and Healing Retreat, Director from 1999-2011 and former Program Manager,  Fran believes in the healing power of storytelling. When we are listened to, especially in community, with respect and without judgment, the ensuing sense of validation allows us to reconnect with our whole selves. Fran retired as of December 2014, but will always keep in touch!
