Stories For Lockdown

Ancient tales often help us explore emotions and experiences through a more objective lens - containing universal struggle, solutions and a space in which we might contemplate ourselves and our anxieties in another dimension.

So why not join me as I share some stories that feel right for the current crisis?

Below, you'll find a series of little podcasts that focus on folktales about isolating, tucking up, exploring indoors and weathering the storm. I'm hoping that in sharing these stories, lights can be lit in the deep dark forest we find ourselves in and we can, perhaps, begin to find our bearings...
