STORYTELLING IN ORIGINAL VOICE®: Rowing Songs for the Night Sea-Journey
A 5 day training intensive with Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés
September 19-24, 2013
Story is a vessel to row forward in your life…a lifeboat, a row boat carrying the precious cargo of ancient and modern instruction for striving to live a life filled with creative fire, meaning, healing, and love. Our stories—whether in dreams, case studies, the tiny story held in a sonnet, the story of the tree across the road, your ancestral stories, or the stories you witness firsthand in the world of family—are the ‘sudden inspiration compasses’ that surround each soul on earth.
This is Original Voice®. Do you know how to hear it, and how to let it be heard in every story you tell?
With “Rowing Songs for the Night-Sea Journey” Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés invites you to join her for a five-day intensive training in the essential art of storytelling. Dr. Estés unleashed a worldwide renaissance in storytelling that retrieved and offered back to the world the living red heart of personal and archetypal narrative with her international bestselling work Women Who Run With the Wolves. This September in Loveland, Colorado, you will have the opportunity to learn from one of the preeminent storytellers of our time, a one-of-a-kind trailblazer in the field of archetypal and healing stories, and a cantadora (keeper of the old stories in the Latina tradition). Drawing on ethnic oral traditions from her immigrant and refugee family and her rich experience as poet and psychoanalyst, she teaches you how to you can revive storytelling from its flattened, forgotten, and sometimes forbidden place in our culture and return it to its sacred place at the heart of our lives.
Story is the way we communicate with each other, soul to soul. Original Voice in storytelling can be used to cut across cultural and educational boundaries. A mission statement, a love letter, a university lecture, an activist’s manifesto, an artists’ field guide, teaching a child, guiding an adult, helping the souls of others… all of these are a form of story in which we share critical and soulful information with others.
Dr. Estés will help you retrieve your Original Voice and develop a new sense confidence in how you carry your stories, how you place them in the world, for your own understanding, and in order to help others understand something of great importance.
