Event Details

In this weekend retreat you will learn how to become a better storyteller. Stories from the Land offers participants the opportunity to:

• Generate writing ideas by interacting and collaborating with peers; communicate, collaborate and negotiate as a member of a team
• Investigate the elements of good stories; write in one or more languages to express thoughts, ideas and experiences
• Infuse stories with the full range of body expression
• Understand the importance of storytelling; write across the curriculum, integrating writing and communication skills with performing art, technology, science and culture
• Draw inspiration for gathering, writing, and telling stories from the landscape that sustains us all.

Educators can take all of this information back into their classrooms. 

“Language functions not simply to dialogue with other humans but also to converse with [the land]… Words do not speak about the world; rather they speak to the world… As the hills and the bending grasses once spoke to our tribal ancestors, so these written letters and words now speak to us.” David Abram in The Spell of the Sensuous.

On-site housing and all meals (dinner on Friday through lunch on Sunday) will be provided.
