MEET Tina Overbury:
TinaO is a core-communications specialist who works with individuals and organizations who feel called.
As a sacred-listener in a divisive time, TinaO works in story, cultivating safe containers for real change-based conversations. She supports leaders to make a difference by bringing their compelling and authentic narrative to the surface for tangible connection. To TinaO, communication is a spiritual practice of both deep listening and transparent and accessible speaking. She specializes in core communication drawing on more than thirty years of working with story structure in: theatre, film, poetry, short and long form editorial, marketing and sales copy and public relations. While her work is rooted in myth and mysticism, her focus is firmly rooted in clear communication from the core for the audience it was created for.
TinaO is a storyteller and deep listener who is ready to collect, write and perform the sacred stories of our time. Her book: Story Stones (publishing in Spring 2021) speaks to the stardust we are, the twelve core stories within us, and the corresponding origin myths from which we come. Her one woman show: O MY GOD - a HERstory clown confessional about a woman, a girl, a witch, and a giant are visited by the Morrigan and other ancient ones during an unconventional church service about a 15,000 year old footprint. Poetic and uncompromising, TinaO invites audiences to travel with her to sacred story places of the world to reconnect to the stories from which we come.
