Free Event: Mindful Storytelling - Initiation
Zeit & Ort
Über die Veranstaltung
While the actual locations can vary, the group will recreate the warmth and cosiness of meeting around a bonfire and telling stories and poems. The narrative can range from folk stories, fairy tales, and sections of epics of old such as Gilgamesh, Norse tales, The Illiad, The Odyssey, Shahnameh, Mahabharat etc.
Stories from different cultures and time periods will be recited first and then discussed depending upon interest. While the primary languages will be English and German, usage of others is welcome based on context. To complement the stories, food from around the world will be shared.
Mindfulness practice will start the meetings to ensure worries are left behind, and attention is brought to the present. Eclectic sharing in keeping with the theme can also be put on the agenda of the meetings.
Die Gruppe stellt die Wärme und Gemütlichkeit eines Lagerfeuers nach, an dem Geschichten und Gedichte erzählt werden. Die Erzählungen können aus Volksmärchen, Märchen und Abschnitten aus alten Epen wie Gilgamesch, nordischen Sagen, der Illias, der Odyssee, dem Shahnameh, Mahabharat usw. stammen.
Zu Beginn der Treffen wird eine Achtsamkeitsübung durchgeführt, um sicherzustellen, dass die Sorgen hinter sich gelassen werden und die Aufmerksamkeit auf die Gegenwart gerichtet ist.
We will discuss at this starting event the format of the activities. Introductions and desires/expectations will be shared. A brief introduction to the practice of meditation will follow. We will share on the role and importance of storytelling.
The meeting indoor needs to be restricted to 12 participants due to COVID restrictions - they are expected to be revised shortly before the meeting, and while hoping for a further relaxation, can't count on it. The venue has cushions and floor mats available - however due to the same restrictions they won't be utilized at present. Feel free to bring your own mats/cushions or we can always use the chairs available at the venue.
Please RSVP attending if you seriously intend to attend, and if something comes up please revise at least 48 hrs before the event to allow others the place instead. Thanks ! If you would want to bring someone along feel free, and we will try to accommodate up to the limit. Feel free to contact me directly in case of queries, needed information etc.
Looking forward to meeting you.
