Every day we write a page of our life story. Looking back some pages seem blank. They are just written in invisible ink (you remember playing with that stuff when you were a kid?) Stories open the heart and warm the places we have turned cold. That's when everything invisible suddenly comes to light and your life story begins to make sense. Discover our upcoming workshops and save the date. Link in the bio!!

Each person is given a particular way of seeing and knowing and saying their knowledge, and if they can’t find a voice, someone else will speak for them. And, generally what someone else says, is not what we have come to say. It’s so important that we both find our stories and leave our stories behind.

The old master summoned his most cherished student and handed her a book. "You hold in your hands everything I have won through years of meditation and study. Treasure this book with your life." The student bowed before the master and without hesitating threw the book into a nearby brazier where the flames quickly consumed it. She became the new master.

hearth_storytelling. It is strange to celebrate Easter at this time of year, in Australia.

It is strange to celebrate Easter at this time of year, in Australia. It is a Spring festival and makes so much more sense in Spring - eggs, bunnies, chicks, all that rises out of the darkness and deadness of Winter. . Our stories are upside down. It is a great reminder that most of us are from transplanted cultures. . How many Australians know the stories that have belonged to the land they live on for thousands of years? Sadly, too few. . #easter #spring #downunder #storytellerslife #storyteller #Geelong #Melbourne #myart #story #storytelling #oraltradition #oralstorytelling #performance #livestorytelling #folklore #folktale #legend #mythology #gratitude #indigenousaustralia #respect

The Hodja was walking alongside a river when someone called to him from the opposite bank, "Excuse me, can you tell me how to get to the other side". "My friend" answered the Hodja "you are on the other side."

Notre Dame - Our Mother. . A great symbol is injured, but she will rise from the ashes, though not without great losses. . My heartfelt sympathy to all who grieve her. . Our symbols are so much more than their physical parts. . In Australia, it is long overdue that we show due respect to the sacred places of First Nations people here. . I drew this yesterday, but changed the colour because I was frustrated by the starkness of the red, white and blue. Today, in the wake of the fire at Notre Dame, those colours have a new symbolism. . . . #notredame #fire #condolences #storytellerslife #storyteller #Geelong #Melbourne #myart #drawing #originalart #handrawn #paris #france #francophile #wisewoman #mother #symbol #gratitude #grief #sacred #respect

'Suddenly, in the middle of nowhere, a thousand doors No one else saw them But you did And when you stepped through Nothing was ever the same.' . . Every child tells stories, every child draws. Inside each of us, that child is still present. We may have been told that 'make believe' never happens, we may have been told to stop telling stories, but when we open the doors to the imagination that child is still very much alive. . Join us for five days of unbridled creativity, story, paint and play with Ashley Ramsden and Hugh Dunford Wood. A space to make believe, to unlock your creativity, to build confidence in yourself as a storyteller or an artist, (note the little ‘a’) to get a new grasp on your life story. . .

As a storyteller, working with folklore and legend, I have come to know the magical way the old stories work on us, if we take time to listen to them deeply. . The story of the heartless giant is told in different traditions, under different titles. I have been working on and off with this story, for several years. It has appeared over and over in my art journalling process. . In just the last two weeks my understanding of this story has shifted enormously. It fells like unlocking an ancient riddle - a piece of wisdom wrapped in a story, left by a long gone elder. . Now I need to make some new art, to capture this new understanding. . . . #giant #understanding #folklore #folktale #storytellerslife #storyteller #Melbourne #Geelong #myart #drawing #originalart #handrawn #illustration #story #oraltradition #livestorytelling #womensstories #wisewoman #ancestors #gratitude #quietjoy
