Teller and the Tale with therapeutic storyteller Janelle Combelic

Janelle Combelic
Originally from Colorado, Janelle Combelic now makes her home in the north of Scotland where she's part of the Findhorn Community. Not only is she a storyteller but also practises and teaches mindfulness, having followed in the footsteps of Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh.

Janelle's storytelling reflects her interest in healing and forgiveness. She is currently offering workshops which invite participants to explore the experience of forgiveness through story, dialogue and meditation. She will also take part in the Findhorn Foundation's Forgiveness conference at the end of September. Janelle shares her thoughts on therapeutic storytelling and tells an ancient tale from the Inuit tradition.

Join the Teller and the Tale starting tomorrow (Sunday) at noon (in the UK or 7am if you're in Eastern Standard Time in North America). Check www.bluesandrootsradio.ca for times in your area.
