Lives of extraordinary women from history brought to life. Pioneers, politicians, physicians, lawyers; strong women of inimitable spirit!

Women have always risen in creative and unexpected ways to defend and protect what they love and what is important to them; their families, villages, lifeways, etc.    Throughout history women have always created community.

Perhaps this is why we have been drawn to tell some of their stories. There is History and there is HerStory.  We both have a deep love of storytelling and the oral tradition as well as women’s history. This seems to be the perfect combination; a wonderful way to breathe life back into some extraordinary women.  Our intent is not only to entertain but to inspire.

Why stories?  Through stories we don’t just learn facts.  We learn deep truths about the human soul, we taste the sweetness of love, the bitterness of loss; we vicariously experience ways to grow through suffering and to open to the sacred.  Stories help us to learn who we really are.

“Once upon a time”…storytelling is experiencing a remarkable renaissance. The Oral tradition enhances visualization, identification, empathy and creativity. Our own imaginations supply the images that accompany the words stamping the storyscape with our own style.

Storytelling is ancient and intimate and has the ability to transform consciousness.

Kendal Haven,Californiastoryteller says “As technology pushes us further apart, somewhere up pops an outlet for bringing people back together.”

Stories have the ability to stitch us securely into a multi-generational quilt of community.

“It may be a coincidence but the year after the personal computer hit the market, the first Storytelling Festival came into existence.”
