April 23, 2011 Workshop on the Incredible Story Egg!Posted by Suzanne, on February 11th, 2010

There is something magical and amazing about an egg.  That something living cracks out of a fragile shell  as a whole chick, penguin, bird… is a true miracle.    And life happens.  So the egg has an inner life, a growing of forces becoming Being.  The egg serves as protector.  In story, as in egg, we can also protect the inner life, this time of the growing forces of a child.  Perhaps even bring a metamorphosing element to it.  I have been developing ‘Protection Stories’ for years now.  Finding ‘story vessels’ that spark the imagination and also serve as a protective prop within the story.  Mouse finds his pumpkin house, sturdy and safe.  Hedgehog curls up in a welcoming tree stump.  Squirrel’s hole in the hollow tree, the old woman’s shoe where all her children live, the shell in the sea where little fish can hide from the big fish, are all pictures of these vessels that house a character in a safe environment.  The egg, is quite naturally another story vessel, just waiting for your stories.
