The Oral Art of Telling Myths, Legends & Saga, Parables Fables, & Folktales – An Online Course
Presenter: Iris Curteis
All stories empower us to re-organise our thinking, re-interpret our experiences & act with integrity & a greater sense of our humanity. Myths, Legends, Sagas, Parables, Fables, & Folktales have different relationships to what we could call the sacred-spiritual, different social functions, & create different ways of working with individuals & in communities.
This six-part online, interactive course is about building your skills as a storyteller. If you use storytelling in child or adult education, parenting, community building, social justice, caregiving, inclusivity & diversity this course offers a practical introduction to the importance of ‘liminal space’, story openings & closings, & an experience of the different forms of Story, why we need them, how they work & how they need to be told.
