 COURSES FOR 2020

 

6 session STORYTELLING COURSE

At Exeter Community Centre, St David's Hill, Exeter, commencing Tuesday March 3rd.

The European folklore and fairytale traditions are rooted in the dark witch infested forests of the Grimms, influenced by the chaotically bawdy worlds of the Italians Basille and Straparola and coalesced in the paradoxicall subversive and subservient environment of the seventeenth century French salons. It is nothing less than a labyrinth of the magical, profoundly frightening and surreal. A slightly parallel world abounding with timeless tales that are perpetually prepared to be reawakened, reshaped and retold by each new generation of storytellers.
 
The six sessions of this course teaches the rudiments of the oral folk and fairytale tradition as it prepares participants to find their individual voices as storytellers and put their own spin on tales from the classic European storytelling tradition.
 
The culmination of the course is an evening of storytelling, to a live audience, at which all participants share their voices and their unique and emerging talents as storytellers.
 
This 6 week course runs once weekly from 7pm to 9pm on Tuesdays.

 

COURSE FEE £100

OTHER NEW COURSES FOR 2020 INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING. 

 

THE WISDOM OF FAIRYTALES

Although few of us have regular cause to kiss a frog, fend off a ravenous wolf or rescue our offspring from the ovens of cannibalistic witches, life can often seem frustrating, difficult and laden with dangers. This course is designed to journey through a landscape shaped by fairy tales and folk lore whilst exploring how the timeless wisdom of these stories can enhance the art of being, living and flourishing in the modern world. 

Themes explored through the many messages and motifs contained within fairy tales include handling change and transitions, connecting with the magical, family dynamics and conquering fears.

Chris Brooks is a storyteller, poet and comedic performer who has a passion for both the oral and literary fairy tale traditions. He has devised this course with the intention of sharing his love of these timeless narratives in ways which are still relevant and useful.

NEW COURSE DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON.

 

EXPLORING THE TAO TE CHING

It should be no mystery as to why the Tao Te Ching, authored by the enigmatic Lao Tzu in the 6th century BC, has stood the test of time. It is uniquely timeless. And as we reap the consequences of our self-imposed separation from nature and struggle with unprecedented rates of change and transition, its wisdom as a text seems more relevant than ever. The Tao Te Ching offers a possible means of personally transcending the shared delusions and follies of these times whilst helping us to live in tune with ourselves, each other and the planet in ways that can contribute to a more wholesome future.
