SHORT COURSE: The Trickster ~ Now you see me, now you don’t

SHORT COURSE: The Trickster ~ Now you see me, now you don’t

A storytelling workshop exploring the Trickster energy ~ with Ashley Ramsden and Stella Kassimati

The Trickster is all at once creator, mischief maker, boundary breaker, Trickster does not play by the rules. Tricksters think on their feet. We need Trickster energy to survive. Androgynous, intuitive, amoral; come taste the edges the Trickster inhabits in story, play, in person and live a little more outrageously, astonishingly even if it’s only for a while. You won’t be the same again.

Storytelling experience is beneficial but not essential.

Stella Kassimati is an experienced workshop leader and storyteller. She teaches around the world in both Greek and English, including at Emerson College and Schumacher College, UK. Stella loves Greek myths and offers workshops on how relevant they are to us today. She has a deep passion for biographical storytelling and for enabling adults to craft and publicly perform their own or family tales with the goal of reconnecting with what it is to be human, increasing empathy and creating community. She loves teaching the craft of the storyteller because it gives people a voice and empowers them to bring more of themselves into the world and make a difference.

Stella is the founding director of Friends of Amari, an international association developing a Storytelling Centre in Amari, Crete, Greece www.friends-of-amari.org.
