‘Winter Tales to Warm the Heart’
Our annual celebration to thank our tellers and listeners over the year, with free mulled wine, mince pies and gingerbread biscuits, and heartwarming tales to carry us through the winter
Following the captivating shape-shifting tales told by Nell Phoenix in November, let us come to together and hold true to the old wisdom held in our bones. For many a human winter in this cold climate our ancestors gathered and shared around fires the gift of stories on the long dark nights. Celebrating the abundance of another year lived and reminding us to seek much needed rest and dreams in winter’s calm to resource life to blossom again in spring.
So as science catches up by demonstrating neurologically what happens when a group of humans share stories, let us continue to feed what serves life: love, generosity, strength, courage, trust and the ever renewing natural cycle of death and rebirth.
Please bring your ears and your stories to share, and we will provide candelight, warmth, and cheer as well as seasonal goodies to carry us into the New Year and the renewal of life and light.
