STORIES OF NATURE

This week will be a time to connect with the Power of Story, the Power of Imagination and the Power of Words. It offers an opportunity to learn more about Deep Listening – listening to Nature, listening to Stories, listening to each other and listening to the Spirits.

In the shamanic worldview, stories are alive and have their own spirit. They are a magical and ancient way of learning from a deeper source. They can bring us hope and help us to find our way. Stories can talk about difficult issues in a way that encourages us to connect to the true meaning behind the words. They can help us to remember how to be human.

Many people feel a deep love for nature, and a deep passion for creating a better world. But how do we talk with Nature about what it wants - and needs? How can it support and inspire us? At this time of huge environmental challenge, we must listen to both human stories and the voices of nature. What do plants, trees, rivers, sky, stones and the wind have to tell us? What do they want us to hear?

If we learn to listen to nature, we can share its stories with other humans, and make nature’s own needs part of the equation. Through the simple act of telling stories, we can create strong long-lasting bonds between humans and the world.
 
On this workshop we will introduce different ways to open to Nature and hear what it has to tell us. In the space of the week, we will do drum journeys, go on medicine walks, practice deep listening, write and tell stories, use the talking piece, and sit together in Circle.

We will get to know the nature of stories in a deeper way and find out how to work with them in our everyday life. We will explore the power of Good Words, and their role in healing - for humans, communities and nature. We will find out how to let go of old stories and create new ones to bring inspiration and life.

This is not a course teaching storytelling techniques or writing skills. It is a course about coming into connection, about listening and sharing, and how to receive stories from the Spirits in a simple, powerful and sometimes surprising way. It will be a time to find stories that move us and daring to share that message with others.

Participants must have completed introductory course The Shaman's Journey or agreed equivalent
