Join performance storyteller and author Dawn Nelson for folklore and stories to celebrate the launch of her new book ‘Stories Of The Sun’. For millennia we have looked to the sun to provide us with light, food and warmth. Through its stories and folklore there lies the chance to reconnect with our primal life force through the exploration of ancient cultures, myths, legends and tales of our past. By understanding the power of our ancient star through the wisdom of those who once walked this land before us, we can hope to unplug ourselves from the synthetic glow that surrounds our lives and reconnect with the stories of the sun and learn lessons from those who hold the light in our stories.
Dawn Nelson is an author, consultant and performance storyteller living within the beautiful South Downs. Her specialism is landscape, heritage and nature interpretation. She has worked with heritage sites, museums, schools, outdoor educators, community groups, councils and libraries to bring history and nature to life through story and spoken word, creating a sense of place and custodianship.
