In this series, we examine personal and traditional stories about the power of names. We will examine stories about the power of names that are hidden, proclaimed, and changed. The classes will be led by Fred Mindlin and Maggid Jim Brulé. Come prepared to learn about the power of names – including your own! – and how that power is shared through storytelling.
The Diving Deeply series invites participants to explore stories with rich metaphor and mystery, seeking meanings below the surface that often affect the listener - and the storyteller - without their awareness. Participants dissect the stories, their symbols and metaphors, and uncover both the first set of meanings that seem to present themselves and then consider alternative tellings and impacts.
Fred Mindlin teaches storytelling, often with string games. He loves to coach others on how to become creative, curious, self-directed, independent lifelong learners. Fred especially loves helping teachers incorporate hand games, finger calisthenics, ambidexterity, and multicultural understandings into everything their students are learning. He says, “Three important bits of my herstory that got me here: Westland School, a private progressive school I went to in the 1950s and where I learned how to learn; the commune in Northern California, where I developed an extremely high tolerance for ambiguity; and learning Spanish to become a bilingual teacher, when I discovered what teaching with string could accomplish.”
Maggid Jim Brulé is a transformational storyteller, and the founder of the Transformational Storytelling school, of which this program is a part. Brulé also works with organizations and communities to bring the power of storytelling to healing the fractures which so often divide us around race, class, faith tradition, and culture.
