Note: This is a two-class series occurring at 11 am EDT on 2 consecutive Tuesdays: 8 and 15 Dec. Each class is 90 minutes.


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. 

In this series, we will dive deeply into the world of Hungarian magic tales dating back to shamanic culture, and their unique and archetypal characters.

This special edition of Diving Deeply into Stories is being offered with Maja Bumberák, and Maggid Jim Brulé. Bumberák is a renowned storyteller and singer based in Budapest, Hungary. She is known around the world for her storytelling, and even more so for researching and reviving the artform of oral storytelling in Hungary. As a scholarship holder of the Hungarian Academy of Arts, she is training teachers and student teachers in oral storytelling.

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. His two-year program has graduated students from around the world, including several ordinations of Jewish students as a Maggid - a spiritual storyteller in the Jewish tradition.

A limited number of "Pay as you wish" tickets are available.

This is truly a unique experience to dive deeply into these mystical depths.

The mission of Transformational Storytelling is to help inspire deep, lasting change in individuals, groups, and communities through the power of story.

Here you can both experience transformational stories and learn how to become a transformational storyteller. We have worked with individuals, groups, and communities around the world promoting the growth of spirit that comes from living with an open heart. We do not promote a particular tradition or ideology - our fundamental assumption is that we must truly appreciate the richness of our differences and the joy of our commonality to lead a full life.

We look forward to encountering you in the future!
