Profile Information

Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
My current work focuses around the oral and literary traditions surrounding the Buddhist saint, Drukpa Kunley. Recalling Michael Aris’ use of the phrase “alternative voices,” I consider how representations of this ‘crazy yogi’ may signify an unconventional vision of what it means to be a perfected person. This vision is located equally within the vibrant oral traditions of Drukpa Kunley operative today in Bhutan, as well as in the fifteenth-century autobiographical writings composed by the saint himself.
