Dr. Sharon Blackie is an award-winning writer whose work sits at the interface of psychology, mythology and ecology. Her highly acclaimed books, articles, and workshops are focused on the development of the mythic imagination, and on the relevance of our native myths, fairy tales and folk traditions to the personal, social and environmental problems we face today.
She is the author of the novel The Long Delirious Burning Blue, and two nonfiction books: If Women Rose Rooted, and The Enchanted Life. In 2017 she founded The Hedge School – both an online space and a physical location in Connemara, for teachings and explorations in building a new folk culture.
In this special talk for Flow Studio Sharon will discuss how we 're-story our places, restore the Earth.' She will share her wisdom and talk about the importance of connecting with place in both physical and imaginal ways.
The event will begin with a reception of organic wine and cheese, included in the price.
Reception from 5pm
Talk begins 5.30pm
