Hi Nathalie, my thesis concerns tying storytelling to the biology of the mind, both in listening and in telling; and making telling an external construct to both mirror the mind and disseminate information at levels from overt to subliminal. That's a mouthful, but it comes down to using neuroscience to demonstrate that storytelling is a part of both our biology and evolution of communication.
Good morning Nathalie, It is good to be in touch with you and Switzerland, which I visit from time to time. I will email you with an invitation to join my special network of the Map of Imagination and Storygardenz, which is about story and place, where there is still a living voice. A tout à l'heure.....

Hello, Natalie - sorry for being slow to get back to you. There is a problem when you pray for opportunities. God has a sense of humor. "You asked for it son! Now let's see what you do when all these good things come at one time...." I can hear the laughter now. Lots of good things, including the release of SIX new children's books. That is a story in itself. Keep in touch. I will more than likely use a PowerPoint during the YES Pre-Conference. It would be my pleasure to sent a copy to you along with any handouts after the conference is over in July. Meanwhile - tell me a bit about yourself and your work. Wishing you well, Mike Lockett
Hi Natalie, Thanks for the invite ,... No I have not had the Honors of meeting Mr. Ganz nor have I had the previledge of much travel . I do a lot of volunteer work here in the city. I'm busy with children events and street ministries. I 've conducted some small workshops in the community I have attend several. I work with all kinds of puppets,I do work with young children and those with special needs both are challenging and exciting to me. I'm working with black light, and human body something rather unique and facinating to young people these days. I'm in the process of getting some things together to share . I'm rather new to using the internet so hopefully I'll be getting back with you soon.
this is really great!
I would love to know more about how you work.
My daughter went to a Waldorf Kindergarten during a year and a half - 4 to 5 years old. She actually had a teacher from Madrid, who was wonderful. I developped some puppet theater and had the chance to collaborate with Mathias Ganz, who is the director of the Felicia Puppet theater nearby the Goetheanum in Dornach, do you know him...
Have you written a presentation that I could read...
Looking forward to read you
I work as a storyteller but my principal job is teaching storytelling acording with an higienic and therapeutic point of view (based on Antroposophy and Waldorf Education.
I work with teachers, professors and parents seeking for the storyteller inside each one and analising the achetips of Fairy tales caracters...
