Tree Of Life
The Tree Of Life is an old mythical symbol of creative life forces. Where can we find this tree today? We need ways to replenish our energy, strength and inspiration to balance the breathlessly fast information culture that we live in. The art of storytelling offers ways to connect to our own creativity and imagination, to meet and inspire each other and to connect more deeply to the world around us.
At this symposium, some of the world's best storytellers gather in Finland for the first time to share their expertise of the many possibilities healing storytelling has in the world today.
Thank you All for this wonderful and blessed Symposium,
for all the meetings, the stories, and the spirit of love!
May it bring inspiration to the healing off mankind and earth.

INTERNATIONAL STORYTELLING SYMPOSIUM IN SLOVENIA
P A R Z I V A L
Igniting the Healing Word
The Story of Parzival is as old as our ancestors. It is still very much alive today and the town of Ptuj and the country Slovenia carry the heart of this myth like nowhere else on earth. Storytelling has always been about turning to our roots for sustenance and for imagining a future full of heart and inspired tales and deep conversation. This is the essence of this symposium. Come to a place where the screen is switched off, where all are invited, teachers, young and older, carers of others and troubadours and storytellers to listen. Come to tell, sing and be well together. Let the grail of the myth be a part of your story as we share this extraordinary tale and take time to reflect of the magic and healing that shines through active listening and inspired telling whether that be in a school, a pub, a theatre, a landscape or a castle. Come make yourself welcome at this unique symposium of Parzival.
The story of Parzival will be told daily in English, Slovenian and German language . There will be workshops on storytelling skills, voice work, movement, harp-playing for storytellers, including a deepening of your understanding of the story, how to work with Parzival in education and much more!
