From Stories of Place to Rewilding our Consciousness
Jenni will touch on the breadth of stories she sees as relevant to environmental education and empowerment and that they are not all about nature or environmental issues. Jenni will tell the story “The Shambala Warriors” made famous by Deep Ecologist, Joana Macy, as well as a few traditional and original tales she has told at rallies and protests. She will also share her experience of working with stories and outdoor labyrinths, an ancient form of walking meditation (distinct from mazes) and a powerful way to connect to place, especially when they are created with intention and outdoors.
Jenni Cargill-Strong participated in the Bentley blockade, where protestors renamed themselves the “protectors”™ who won a landmark battle against unconventional gas mining in 2014. Jenni has been mentored by environmental storyteller and scientist, Dr Fran Stallings (who presented principles of her work on a teleconference on April 7, 2015) which empowered her to create her own environmental storytelling workshops. She has a particular interest in stories of place and stories that reconnect. Recently Jenni has added a second great passion to her life, after stories: labyrinths. Jenni trained in labyrinth building and facilitation in Sydney this year with the founder of Veriditas, Dr Artres and subsequently has had a profound experience working with a story within the labyrinth. Jenni also has begun training in “Joyality”™, an Australian course which draws on ecopsychology and deep ecology.
