WEEKEND WORKSHOP: A Storyteller's Holiday

WEEKEND WORKSHOP: A Storyteller's Holiday

Give yourself a weekend in the world of storytelling with Ashley Ramsden.

This summer, before the darkness descends again, why not give yourself a weekend in the world of storytelling?

Storytelling is first and foremost entertainment but it is also an avenue to educate, and heal. Deepest of all, it is a path of inner awakening. All these levels will be explored and experienced in this weekend of wonders, which will feature some of the stories that have sustained and inspired me for nearly 40 years. Saturday night will be given to a performance of Tistou - a story for our time, new exercises and old will be threaded throughout the sessions, the beautiful surroundings of Emerson College holding and supporting us throughout.. 

If you've never told a story before, here's your chance to learn a few skills, if your story tanks are low, here's the space to fill them with some story wisdom, if you're in need of some Co-Vid recovery time, here will be laughter, safe contact and some story medicine to see you through the months ahead.
