ONLINE COURSE: Health, Heart, Hope

ONLINE COURSE: Health, Heart, Hope

Story wisdom for dark times, with storytellers Nancy Mellon and Ashley Ramsden.

These extraordinary times call us to connect with our deepest sources of spiritual and physical nourishment to support our personal and communal well-being. Science, medicine and psychology all confirm the power of stories to shape and influence our lives. Their wisdom has sustained us since our very beginnings.

During this course we will invoke sacred ceremonial legends and commune together with their inspirational truth, while expanding our caring awareness of the Earth and all of our relationships. These eight sessions will bring you into the presence of story wisdom with practices and exercises to empower your compassion, vitality, and visionary hope.

Themes include:

  • awakening the heart
  • the picture language of story as mythic medicine,
  • holding the center against impossible odds
  • plant medicine
  • feminine wisdom
  • invoking powers of protection
  • transforming evil
  • brain research & New Mind

The School of Storytelling

The School of Storytelling, Emerson College, the longest running centre of its kind. Founded in 1994, we continue to run courses and welcome people from all cultures, backgrounds, genders, ages and experience.

'We are all born storytellers. Storytelling is how we make sense of the world, who we are, where we are going and how we communicate this to others, personally or professionally.

Storytelling underpins everything we do: entertainment, education, healing, activism.

Our belief systems are stories, every algorithm tells a story. The myths, legends, folk and fairy tales that every culture has left behind are all "the distilled essence of human experience.'
