Storytelling at Christ Church, Morningside Edinburgh

Story Telling with Michael Williams

Sunday 6 February

10am Eucharist and 11.15am in Church Centre

Michael Williams PhD is a professional story teller, coach and educational consultant. He is also the editor of ‘Therapeutic Story Telling’ – part of the All Things Healing online community.

Michael has practiced in many fields of work down the years, including the academic world, but he is concentrating now on being involved in extending the practice of story-telling both in this country and abroad. Recently he was in Palestine and Israel. His time there made him even more deeply aware of the transforming power of sharing stories experienced by individuals and groups within that fiercely divided country.

Now forget the credentials! Just come to meet the story teller and find out that the stories are at the heart of the matter.
