About The Event
In ancient Northern Europe the dragon was a symbol for merging the underworld and upperworld. The serpent descends, the eagle ascends: when the two merge, a dragon is born. Andreas Kornevall presents an afternoon of storytelling, music and poetry concerning northern myth - particularly relating to dragons, serpents and eagles. He relates these mythical underpinnings to the current world predicament of mass extinction and climate change. For a practical part of the workshop he will teach how to use runes for inner work and outer transformation. All are welcome to join regardless of experience, sexuality, and cultural background: the spirit is warm and enthusiastically inclusive.
Andreas Kornevall grew up in South America, Sweden and Switzerland. He spent several years volunteering with charities around the world, after which he co-founded workingabroad.com - a non-profit volunteering and travelling site, which has sent thousands of volunteers across the world. He also directs the Earth Restoration Service Charity, which aims to enhance ecological integrity, by planting new woodlands around the world.
In response to the sixth mass extinction he co-founded the Life Cairn movement: memorials for species rendered extinct at human hands. As a writer he was the winner, 3rd prize, of the wordhut.com short story competition. His writing on myth and ecology has appeared in many books and publications. As a storyteller he has worked with Sussex Past, the oldest archaeological society in the UK, and he regularly works with the National Trust in the UK in re-storying the landscape of the South Downs in Sussex where he lives.
