"Sarah Agnew Tells Stories"

Mackillop House and Conference Centre

$15.00

Our next event ... Friday 2 October, 2020 Rev. Dr. Sarah Agnew: "Story Telling" at MacKillop House, 50 Archibald St, Lyneham, ACT., and on-line! Sarah says ... What I do as a storyteller: * compose, perform and publish stories that lead humans from fear to love, * equip readers of the Bible to engage with and make meaning of the Sacred Stories as human beings, * encourage people to tell their own story as a way of nurturing the healing and wholeness of us all. Why I tell stories: * because humans tell stories – to make meaning of our experiences of living, * I believe in the dignity of all human beings, * I believe that we are fully human – healed and whole – together, and stories bring us together *** * *** Rev Dr Sarah Agnew is a storyteller, poet, and ordained minister in placement with Wesley Uniting Church, Canberra. Sarah has published three volumes of poetry, as well as liturgy, prayer, and story in books, audio albums, and internationally edited compilations. As a storyteller, Sarah performs the compositions of the biblical tradition and her own creation, leads workshops to encourage others to tell stories, and is a scholar in the field of Biblical Performance Criticism, exploring how oral storytelling helps us to understand the Bible in its fullness as works transmitted through the body, on the voice. Her forthcoming book, Embodied Performance. Mutuality, Embrace, and the Letter to Rome, presents the research of her PhD (2017) into the Bible and performance (or oral storytelling). Sarah was the keynote speaker for the 2020 International gathering of the Network of Biblical Storytellers. For more detail of Sarah's writings, see her website: https://sarahagnew.com.au *** * *** We meet from 7:30 pm for tea and coffee and snacks, music, discussion and library.

Dorothea's Fairy Tales: Six Tuesdays

Wesley Uniting Church

$60.00

Dorothea's Six-Week "Fairy-Tale Group" Facilitated by Dorothea Wojnar Tuesdays 20, 27 October and 3, 10, 17 & 24th November 2020 7:00 - 9:30 pm Venue: Wesley Uniting Church 22 National Circuit, Forrest ACT Beginning with the fathers of the field, Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, psychoanalysts have turned to fairy-tales in an effort to understand the human mind. Fairy-tales are inextricably linked to the work of Carl Jung. The “collective unconscious” that lies at the core of his work, and which is shared by all human beings, is revealed through archetypes, forms and symbols found in fairy-tales. Fairy-tales are oral forms of folk tales with moral and ethical aspects, which teach us how to behave and how to deal with others in the community. Marie-Louise von Franz considers fairy-tales as the purest and simplest expression of the collective unconscious of psychic processes. Fairy-tales represent the contents of the collective unconscious, the archetypes. Fairy-tales offer an understanding of the basic patterns of the human psyche and can guide us through the individuation process. Working with your favourite fairytale: Participants are asked to bring their favourite tale either one they have heard and love or a fairy-tale they have written. We will be experiencing the fairy-tales through enacting the fairy-tales. Participants will have the opportunity to become archetypal characters in the fairy-tale. This can be a powerful experience as you become for a short time the witch or the evil king or the divine child. Participants will be asked to bring various props that will help them to become the characters in the tale. After de-roling, each participant has an opportunity to share within the closed group about what it felt like to be in that role and how they experienced the other characters. The group is confidential, and participants are asked not to discuss personal material from the group outside the group. Acting ability is not important, because we will focus on developing an ability to experience your own and other’s psyche. Most of us acted out stories and tales as children - this is similar to that with two major differences - we become archetypal characters with intention, and we have an opportunity to discuss the experience. Dorothea is a Jungian Analyst, Counsellor and Psychotherapist in private practice. Dorothea has extensive experience as a group leader and therapist across a range of people and issues and has worked in both a public health facility as well as in private practice. For further information, please contact Dorothea Wojnar on (0413)[masked]. Cost: $60 for the series (Try to attend all six sessions!).
