Back to All Events



Story means "store house". When a story possesses reminders and meaning needed during challenging times they become wisdom stories, sacred stories or places of treasured remembrance. It is then, when we have lost our way, that we can reach back into the "store house" of our ancestors to remember and revision what it is we burn for and how to awaken. 

For all of human history we have been sharing in the oral tradition of storytelling. It was a central vehicle for humans to impart wisdom, entertain, teach and retain information from generation to generation. In the past 100 years this enchanting, educational and heart-warming art has been all but lost on modern culture. 

Come join us for a mesmerizing evening of wisdom stories and drumming with world traveling percussionist, poet and storyteller John de Kadt.
