WEEKEND WORKSHOP: Passion and Logic: Dionysos and Apollo

WEEKEND WORKSHOP: Passion and Logic: Dionysos and Apollo

A storytelling weekend exploring the power and energy, within and without,  of the Greek Gods Dionysos and Apollo with Stella Kassimati.

At the time of the spring equinox, we will explore the energies of the Greek Gods Dionysos and Apollo, darkness and light, passion and reason, wild and ordered, and see how their balance can guide us to our own inner sovereignty. 

Some say Dionysos and Apollo are two sides of the same coin. How does Dionysos, God of Eternal Life, Inspiration, Creativity, Passion and Wine, and Apollo, God of the Sun, Medicine, Music, Light and Logic, manifest in our lives today? How can we balance their energies in us? 

Why is life experience valued less than science? 

How do these Gods feature in our ‘cultured and civilised’ western world and in the crises we find ourselves in?

These and many other questions will be explored in a weekend of myth, discussions and playful storytelling exercises.

All welcome. No previous knowledge of Greek Myths or Storytelling is required.



“The weekend was highly enjoyable. I learned a great deal and the course has been an important step in balancing my own Apollonian and Dionysian mysteries. Highly recommended.” Liz Cruse, U.K. Dionysos and Apollo 2019

“I have now attended three of Stella’s courses, and hope that there may be many more. Her sensitive way of working with where a group is and wants to explore, expert knowledge, and rich storytelling experience have for me always guaranteed that her courses will be informative, playful, inspiring, and deeply engaging. Matched with her humility, mixing of imaginative and always meaningful exercises, and a desire to get to know and have fun with the characters that feature in her teaching, you can be sure that you will come away with a new appreciation of the power of story and myth. I thoroughly recommend, and look forward again to having open ears and an open mind in her wonderful company before too long!” Clive Johnson, U.K. 2019, 2017 and 2015.

“Stella as a teacher of Myth and the power of it, has influenced me for life.  I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to receive her teaching as a student and friend.  I felt her unwavering connection to the ancient Myths come through in her ability to articulate through both language and frequency of being.”  Coco Kami, U.K. 2017

“Stella has a deep knowledge of Greek Mythology but more than that I would say that she is such connection with ancient Greek Gods that is impossible not to transfer some of their powers to students. She created the perfect ground for students to meet and at last understand the Greek gods whose behaviour and actions so often are misunderstood. However, through her we all felt connected with them and felt their different powers in our tellings.” Maria Zourari, Greece  Heart and Craft 2015
