This class is part of our Living Ananda series and will include Ananda Yoga from 6:15 to 7:15.
A good storyteller is important in any culture and is a respected member of the community. Stories are often handed down from the generations and reflect wisdom and knowledge. In today’s hectic rushing about, it can be a wonderfully effective way to connect with children especially, but also with folks from all walks of life.
It’s important for the storyteller to learn to connect first with his own inner resources of heart energy, wisdom, boundless fantasy and imagination. Then many opportunities can arise for sharing deep truths and the joy that those truths may bring. Inspiring stories plant seeds of happiness in heart and mind that may sprout at appropriate times later on. This may happen in the form of remembrance or, on a more subconscious level, the truth contained in the story may take the form of an insight or power in facing one of life’s innumerable challenges.
During this workshop you will learn to use meditation to tap into hidden resources of fantasy and come up with stories that are attuned to your children’s emotional, mental and spiritual needs and to create stories to share with all our friends and loved ones.
