"In the south of Denmark we had a wonderful WSD in a small room where more than 50 people found their way to listen to great stories about neighbours. We invited a singer/guitarplayer, whom I worked with before. She recently moved into an old bakery…"

"Very interesting to read your reply. I like the idea of you cookbook. I don't think about being a storyteller as a career, but I guess it's what I'm aiming at after all. I'm a teacher who always told stories somehow, to make…"

Marianne Christensen replied to Reisa Stone's discussion My stories are mainly for adults: how do I explain?
"Maybe it's a cultural thing, the expression 'adult stories'. In Denmark, where I live, I get the same response as you about telling for children, but when I tell people I mostly tell stories for adults, I do not at all get that…"

International symposium for storytelling as a healing art

Wauw, that's a long title....

We also call it

'spinning tales weaving hope'



Lots of people are now working seriously hard to tell the world about the symposium, that is taking place the last week of July 2009.



A couple of days ago, I was called by a woman, whom I've not yet met, and she told me, 'she had heard about the symposium, and now she just wanted to ask me, how she could help.'

- What a nice surpise!

Yesterday I recieved a mail from Australia,… Continue

Hi Marianne,
I am working with various groups - cancer patients, homeless, students in low income neighbourhoods and helping them to share their stories - sometimes in an informal way. I am always looking for good stories to offer to them. Often the most sought after tales are the personal and family tales that I can find in my own backyard. Where do you look for stories?

Sorry to write in English - I am working on learning Icelandic but haven't tried Danish much yet.
My sister Faye Mogensen who is also a storyteller, spent 3 winters in Danmark with her Danish husband in the Thisted area so she is fluent in Danish. I am so envious! I will have to work on that next. Perhaps the two of us could come to visit you sometime - or we would welcome you to visit us here.

Hi Marianne,
Thanks for including me. I am hoping to meet you in person one day soon. I would love to attend the "spinning tales, weaving hope symposium" but have already committed to going to Turkey and to Newfoundland this spring and summer! I hope to gain some insight from your good work.
I will keep an eye out for what you are doing and please let me know how I can be more closely connected.
I am hoping to arrange some travel to Iceland next year and perhaps I could include a stop in Denmark to meet you and see my extended family.

Hi Marianne. The International Symposium for Storytelling as a Healing Art sounds fascinating. This year I am not free at that time, but if there is another next year, I am interested!

Won't you consider joining the group: Applied Storytelling: the Power of Story? We would love to have you, and you could tell us more about this fascinating topic. I too believe in the power of story to transform lives - for the better! In fact, I am doing my graduate studies on this topic. This group is for those who share similar views and provides a venue for expressing them! So, you would be welcome at "Applied Storytelling: the Power of Story."

To join the group simply click on "Groups" at the top of your home page, then click on the "Applied Storytelling" icon (a nice cup of cappuccino!), then click on "Join this Group."

I look forward to possibly having you with us! Best wishes to you. STEVE
