About the event
Stories are the way people have learned, remembered, and communicated ever since we developed language. In fact it could be argued that we are a narrative species. The way that we make sense of the world around us is to tell stories, or imagine narratives around certain situations. They help us to make sense of an uncertain world.
The Missing Link - What of the ground we are standing on? Is a tranformative course engaging participants with story, song, and ther local environment. You wil be offered prompts to explore your own personal relationship with the Earth under your feet.
