Telling the World’s Oldest Stories: Giving Voice to the Archetypes of the Soul with Will Hornyak Joseph Campbell once said that the point of working with myths is not so much to interpret them, but to live them and to discover which myth is already living through us. The oldest stories can recall to us the nature of our own soul’s journey and the timeless narrative being lived beneath our outer lives. As powerful as the ancient myths, fairytales and folktales can be, they often need a special quality of relationship and care before they become accessible to ourselves and to an audience. This experiential workshop explores methods for developing traditional material (myths, fairytales, folktales, poems and legends) to ground them in our own experience, body and voice. Bring a story, a portion of a story, or a poem you’d like to work with. No previous storytelling experience required!
Facilitator: Will Hornyak teaches storytelling at Marylhurst University and performs throughout the United States. He has offered workshops for numerous schools and organizations including Intel, the American Cancer Society, Doc Martens Shoes, the American Hospital Association, Multnomah County Juvenile Justice Dept., and the Oregon Arts Commission. He was named Artist of the Year by Young Audiences of Oregon.
