Storytelling is an art as old as the earliest human cultures. It brings people together in community. Stories have the power to lead us into the realm of the imagination and also to connect us to our physical environment. They serve as tools to pass on knowledge, wisdom and warnings.
In this session, we will explore storytelling as a means of connecting to place, community and self.
Steph Brophy is inspired by the magic of people and nature. After working, living and learning abroad for several years, she returned to Melbourne to rediscover the land she grew up on. Steph has long loved camping and bushwalking and has found joy in deepening her connection to nature, community and herself through earth-based skills and awareness. Steph has experience teaching and working with children both in classrooms and in wild nature, and loves to help nurture their inner curiosity and wildness. She is currently finding inspiration through her studies of the Steiner teaching philosophy.
