For November's virtual cafe event I interview author and storyteller, Michelle Tocher about her pioneering work on the magical power of fairy tales.
I discuss with Michelle how fairy tales gave her a lifeline, when she fell sick with chronic undiagnosed pain, along with other real life examples of people's lives who have been transformed through embodying the wisdom of the fairy tales.
In this interview you will discover:
A dynamic new approach to access the transformative powers of fairytales
How you can begin to explore the spiritual treasures of these stories
The secret keys to unlocking the stories you are living
How embodying fairytales can enhance your creativity and life
Why fairytales can help you navigate life's journey including your "dark nights of the soul"
