Shoshana began learning about storytelling from First Nations elders in 1977. Later she realized with delight that her own tribe had significant contributions to offer. Her stories and songs, drawn from Jewish and world sources as well as her vivid imagination, have inspired diverse audiences since 1997. Three years of study with an Orthodox tutor and more than a decade practicing Mussar (Jewish ethics), deepened Shoshana’s access to Jewish wisdom. She continues to share stories, songs and Torah commentary whenever the opportunity arises. Read More
Saturday In Procter
The first day of the Kootenay Storytelling Festival was held in the historic village of Procter, a little off the beaten track but well worth the trip!
Storytelling venues included the Schoolhouse, the Church, and the Community Hall. There’s still a playground for the kids, and the Village Bakery is still turning out those fabulous cinnamon buns!
