Storytelling: Connecting head, heart, earth and hearth
Rose Rylands, Storyteller, will be helping us to explore stories, myth and folklore and develop our storytelling skills.
We will be sharing stories around the fireside, myth, folklore and fairy tale. Stories we can share together, stories we tell ourselves, collective stories, stories that connect us with soul and earth. We will be looking at performance and how to connect with an audience, finding stories and choosing the right tale.
We will be exploring some key themes in story: Earth, myth, the elemental world, the symbolic, archetypal and ecstatic. Culture as informed by landscape and myth. Awakening to earth and imagination, defending our right to be storytellers not of the technological but of the mythic mind. The difference between story and myth, folklore and the shamanic. Re-enchanting and reclaiming the wild part of the psyche.
This workshop is helpful for anyone wishing to challenge the stories we tell ourselves, the stories we are taught to believe, how history has censored our relationship with our own magical selves and the magic in nature. How to recalibrate relationship with wherever you happen to be. Relationship and connection with landscape as a symbiosis of healing.
