This is a brand-new edition of a book first published by Element Books in 1992 and called Storytelling and the Art of the Imagination. Inspired by the Waldorf system, Nancy Mellon has been prominent in the rebirth of storytelling around the world and continues to pioneer it as part of a healing process. Stories are great for dealing with issues imaginatively and symbolically, and this inspirational guidebook is full of techniques and tips which we can use in school, workplace and family settings. It indicates what the different characters in a fairy tale can stand for, like elves, princesses and tricksters. It’s deeply wise, beautifully written and full of wonderful stories!
