Springtime stories with Lennox in Courtenay

Storyteller Hazel Lennox will be presenting another afternoon of captivating stories.

In celebration of Easter, named after the Goddess Oestra of ancient times, storyteller Hazel Lennox will be presenting another afternoon of captivating stories.

She will be telling an original tale, which, since its inception, continues to evolve and change.

“It’s rather like a baby,” said Lennox. “They start as tiny little beings and get bigger and stronger with every year. This story of the Crystal Spring has been rather like that. The audience have become a larger part of the telling and it’s grown in depth over the years.”

Lennox is unapologetic in her enthusiasm for listening and telling stories.

“They are the fabric of human civilization” she noted.

“We get all kinds of information from stories and they lead us to reflect on our own lives – are we coming from a place of compassion in our actions, or revenge? Are we the hera or the hero; the wicked stepmother, the boasting father, the sage? What is our own unique ‘quest’? I’m fascinated by stories and Carl Jung’s take on the characters representing human archetypes. Also, they’re hugely entertaining.”

Be part of the story at The Bayside Café, April 23 at 2 p.m. and be transported to the world of imagination and wonder. These stories are for adults and older children. Admission is by donation.
