Story: a doorway into mystery

It is possible that some of the Indo-European fairy tales that we know and love are very, very old: not just hundreds of years old, but thousands. Some may have been told for as many as 6000 years.

Stories like The Firebird, Sleeping Beauty, Bluebeard, Rashin Coatie, and many others hold within them an unparalleled storehouse of knowledge and wisdom.

They can tell us about the human condition, including who we are, why we're here, and our relationship with the more-than-human world of which we are a part.

By engaging with stories with open minds, hearts, and spirits, we can enter into their symbolism, drama, and meanings.

If we listen to what they have to say to us, if we follow where they lead, we can learn, we can change, and we can transform our lives, our relationships, and our world.

Elinor creates and shares transformational performances of traditional tales, and associated workshops and courses. In these which we enter into story together, co-creating magic, and supporting one another to step through the doorway of discovery that the story offers.

Below are three examples; more are in development.
