In this interview with Eric, I speak about how the various elements of nature mythology can be an enlivening force both for those who hear
you tell and for your own journey into this ancient form of meaning. Storytelling a landscape and being storied by it is one of the most intimate and rewarding nature journeys one can take. Read more »

The Gift and the Curse

Death in a Cemetary Recently I told a friend of mine that I thought the environmental movement was using scare tactics too much and was too depressing in its arguments. He replied that it may be true about the fear, but he didn’t think the environmental community was depressing enough.

There is a story that a human life is like a man riding a donkey with a tiger walking behind him. The man lives in fear of the tiger. Sometimes he goes faster, sometimes he goes slower. Sometimes he looks and feels more. Sometimes he goes to sleep on the donkey. The man is always afraid that if he turns and looks at the tiger too closely the tiger will eat him. But the truth is the tiger does not care whether the man looks or not. Death waits for us all – while walking right behind our shoulders.

This denial of death, allowing us to Read more »

Sharing the Passion of Nature through Storytelling.

Doug Elliot Writes…
How do you find a story in nature (or anywhere else for that matter)? I often start with an incident, an encounter, a problem or a question-something happens to you, you meet someone, see something, or you wonder about something. The narrative I tell is my journey of investigation, trying to figure it out.

The incident is your hook, not only to your listeners when you’re storytelling, but also to yourself as an explorer and an investigator. Then I let my curiosity be my guide. I start asking questions. Any journalist will tell you your ability to get a good story is often directly related to your ability to ask good questions. The first and probably the ultimate resource is yourself. How do/did I relate to that incident, encounter, problem or question? How did I feel?

The next step might be an initial resolution concerning Read more »

What Is Environmental Storytelling?
Environmental storytelling is the act of using live narrative performance to teach an audience about the natural world, how it Read more »
