Once upon a time there was a girl named Naomi who loved to listen. And the more she listened the more she understood that the world was full of stories and that these stories offered not only entertainment but also solace and inspiration. She began to tell stories from dinner tables to classrooms, from the 14th Annual International Storytelling Festival in Vancouver, Canada to the ‘Science Meets Dharma’ project in Southern India. From hospices to forests, new words and old tales found each other.
As I walk, as I walk
The universe is walking with me
In beauty it walks before me
In beauty it walks behind me
In beauty it walks below me
In beauty it walks above me
Beauty is on every side
As I walk, I walk with Beauty.
Traditional Navajo Prayer

In this workshop, we will look at how the archetypical story, The Hero’s Journey, occurs in our daily lives and in the world(s) around us.
We will have fun playing with the codes and symbols that surround us and explore indications from signposts along the road. Stories will provide the necessary context for this exploration.
No previous storytelling experience necessary.
