Writing Stories for an Ecological Age
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.
