Storytelling festival 2017

4, 5 & 6 augusti 2017 | 5th international STORYTELLING FESTVAL
Gamla Bion | Örsundsbro | Sweden


Pay attention please!

>> If you want to participate in the festival please fill in a registration form and we’ll put you on the waiting list.
>>> If there are 6 people on the waiting list Pauline Seebregts [The Netherlands] will hold a two days workshop Personal Storytelling. Theme: in difficult situations may otherwise normal people rise above themselves to do the impossible. Doing so they reunite themselves with their original powers, wisdom and love.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field.  I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
doesn’t make any sense


Something is at stake right now on planet Earth.
Suddenly it has become evident that big changes are taking place. Things we have been taking for granted start falling away.

It is time to put into practise all we have learned so far during our longer or shorter lives. Let’s remember to stay in contact with our souls while acting from our higher ideas about the world.

May this festival be a meetingplace of souls, a campfire of inspiration. Let’s reunite the wisdom of the old with the vital energy of the young, may we reunite ourselves with our own deep knowing, courage and laughter. Welcome!

Said I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trenchtown, yeah!
And then Georgie would make the fire lights,
I seh, logwood burnin’ through the nights, yeah!
Then we would cook cornmeal porridge, say,
Of which I’ll share with you, yeah!
My feet is my only carriage
And so I’ve got to push on through.
Oh, while I’m gone,
Everything’s gonna be all right!
Everything’s gonna be all right!

No Woman No Cry / Bob Marley.
