Workshop: Bio-dynamic Storytelling with Nancy Mellon
Cultivating the art and science of storytelling, like home-grown food, is even more essential today. The wi-fi wilds of indigestible images, data, messaging and violent “games” are not as easy to remove as toxins and weeds. New tools are needed and practice is required. Participants in this workshop will discover enlivening methods and a pharmacopeia of plot-lines and characters for composting and transforming these and other challenging dilemmas at school, and at home. Please bring an unlined notebook and colored pencils.
Nancy Mellon has been encouraging storytelling as a healing art around the globe for more than thirty years. Her workshops and courses brim with creativity. She is a psychotherapist and former Waldorf teacher whose books are cherished in many countries. Nancy is the author of Storytelling and the Art of Imagination, Storytelling with Children, The Knottles, and Body Eloquence, which won the US Books’ Best Books Award in the field of Alternative Medicine.
