Event Description

AUGUST 3-5, 2012: Come to the hills of western Massachusetts and learn the art of storytelling from a seasoned Storyteller and Coach!  This Institute is a three day immersion into this ancient art form.  We will delve into exercises in improv theatre, movement and writing all the while applying our new skills, knowledge and inspirations to crafting our stories for telling.  And in doing so, we also build community.

Most people work with a folktale, but some choose to work with other genres such as personal or biblical stories.

Throughout the years participants have come from many professions including: lawyer, doctor, environmental educator, theatre professional, storyteller, minister, rabbi, corporate executive/consultant, dancer, speech and language therapist, retiree and lots and lots of teachers and librarians!  Of course, many also come for personal growth and a chance to treat themselves to a weekend retreat away from their usual routine.

Whatever your reason, I hope you'll consider joining us this year!  The last Early Bird Deadline has been extended to June 8th, which comes with the incentives of $50 off the fee!!  Last year we had a full house, so register early!

The Institute is held at the Angel’s Rest Retreat and Conference Center in the beautiful New England town of Leyden, Massachusetts.  It features a spacious workshop space with views, Hot tubs, pools, forests, great food, friendly and accommodating staff and 20 PDP's for Massachusetts teachers!

ACTUAL DATES of RETREAT: August 3-5, 2012
