Join us on December 8th, at 7 pm at Temple Emek Shalom for an evening of storytelling produced and hosted by The Hearth Community. Storytellers from the Stories Alive crew will be sharing tales from their childhood alongside other Ashland community members.
The Hearth Community is a new model of community building based on personal storytelling, reflective listening, and community service. The Hearth Community develops community gatherings in which people explore, craft, and share stories from what they have lived. The Hearth Community also raises money for non-profits in Southern Oregon through community storytelling events. Once a quarter we gather a handful of local folks to tell a true story, first person, based on a theme. Past themes include: “Love Hurts,” “Tales from Childhood,” “Letting Go,” and “Wilderness Tales.” Each event includes live music (from bluegrass, to folk, to Celtic, to jazz) coordinated by Ashland fiddler Duane Whitcomb.
Admission to the event is a suggested $5 donation. Refreshments are available. All admissions benefit Stories Alive.
