Mining the Gold in Our Memory Tales
with Marni Gillard, storyteller and workshop
at Christ Episcopal Church, 20 Carroll St, Poughkeespie
Inside EVERYONE is an eager storyteller. As children, we shout our early stories to nearby adults with the declarations of “Fall down- go boom” or “Car go Vroom” with glee and conviction. As adults, we sometimes forget that our stories still matter, forget that by speaking we make meaning from our experience.
This workshop is about honoring the inner wisdom of experience and memory. Memories offer lessons and insights. When we tell our stories, we see them with new eyes.”
Marni Gillard will take us through a series of activities and promises that “a memory will rise to be TOLD, and it will offer you a treasure to further examine.”
Marni Gillard is
a full-time teaching artist who has long been involved in interfaith
storytelling and coached youth tellers for “Children at the Well: Youth Tellers
for Peace and Understanding.
Besides life-storytelling, she enjoys retrieving tales from scripture, folktales, movies, poetry and songs. In October, Marni will co-lead a class in bibliodrama with John Courtney at the Consultation Center in Albany, NY.
