Do you sometimes wish you can get away from it all and do something completely different within a small budget? Just imagine it, you are in nature listening to captivating stories, around the fire and under the stars. You have a sense of unity within the community while enjoying this 3 day retreat away from city life in beautiful Epping Forest. It is time with self, it is time with family, it is you time. That is why this festival is so exciting. It is wonderful for us, Shanti-Chi, to see you, feel peace and create laughter through the power of storytelling. You will hear stories performed by internationally renowned storytellers Griot Chinyere, Usifu Jalloh, Sandra Agard, Angie Amra, Eli Anderson Amantha Edmead and Ashanti Michelle. That’s what this festival is all about and that is why it is wonderful. Look forward to wholesome foods, forest walks, yoga and personal healing. Freedom, peace of mind, time to relax and have fun, it is a moment away from the stresses of everyday life. Inspirng visions with the oral traditions, that is what we are here to do! A chance to be me, a chance to be you, a chance to be we, a chance to be free! In the words of Bob Marley, “Come Lively up yourself!” Be a part of history, come to our fourth storytelling festival and be at one with nature.
