Time to go back to the words of the moors and the trees.

To lovingly recall our wonder.

Once upon a time...


Oral storytelling community and events

Recalling Fire is a storyteller's invitation to gather in person in the wilds. Guided by the deep wisdom of trauma and rebirth, it's a call to open our eyes a little wider.

Join us for oral storytelling events and trail fires. Walk the wilds, speak the words of our forebears and reconnect with our storied lands. Mythology, folklore and song in the embrace of stars, stream water and leaf litter...

Travel beyond this era's boundaries of hard rationale and 'always summer', 'always on'. Simplify. Follow the deep intuitive knowing to get outside and share fire. Meet others. Maybe, in the twilight, meet yourself.​

'Once upon a time'

is not asking us to believe.

It's reminding us to feel.


Weeping at the crossroads

We are journeying together through the valleys of a choking planet, suffering crises of fear and separation and obfuscation. Which way can we turn?

The wolf knows. She's howling for us to take a sharp exit from the path we're stumbling down and pause. Listen.

Once, fireside storytelling was the heart-song of a community, the meeting place of elders and youngers, ancestors and descendants, wisdom and vitality. A place to see ourselves in one another, history and nature.

In these times of confusion, intolerance, crisis...

We can call it back.


We are born story walkers

Deep inside, we know the path. This is not complex. When we clear the brambles away from our hearts, the old footprints will still be there.

Pushing deeper into our nature, breathing and weaving our words of place, fire and myth, we might just begin to feel the rain falling on the land of our parched spirituality.

Maybe then will we bring wonder back to the ordinary.

Maybe then we will honour this remarkable planet of ours.

We can do this. We must. If not for our own lives, then for the descendants we’re dreaming of.
