Event description

Description

Dr. Martin Shaw is one of the country’s best-loved storytellers and the leading teacher of myth of his generation. In troubled times it can be easy to fall into either despair or numbness, and it was a traditional role of the storyteller to rouse both beauty and vocation in such moments. To attend to the grace. In this electrifying evening, Shaw will bring myths that remind us of love, grief and the mysteries. He will also be talking about his new book, The Night Wages, a rumination on the vitality of ancient stories in modern times.


Dr Martin Shaw is the author of the award-winning Mythteller trilogy A Branch From The Lightning Tree, Snowy Tower, Scatterlings, he founded the Oral Tradition and Mythic Life courses at Stanford University, whilst being director of the Westcountry School of Myth in the UK. He has introduced thousands of people to mythology and how it penetrates modern life. For twenty years Shaw has been a wilderness rites of passage guide, working with at-risk youth, the sick, returning veterans and many women and men seeking a deeper life.
