Writing Stories for an Ecological Age

Writing Stories for an Ecological Age

December, 2012

This event focused on the importance of understanding the unconscious influence of stories on children. Many stories unwittingly foster a materialistic orientation, be it through the hero going in search of treasures or the princess kissing a frog which turns into a prince. Why would not the frog turn into a farmer, a worthy soul who knows to care about the land? Or an artist who loves Nature?

The day long programme included a workshop where participants, who were mainly teachers, wrote popular stories which can unconsciously foster ecological living.
