A unique, immersive weekend of storytelling for adults from the world-renowned tradition bearer and storyteller Shonaleigh.

In this episode of Shonaleigh’s acclaimed Gem cycle, an ancient warlord is looking for three objects that will give him possession of all the kingdoms of the world.

The Sapphire Staff given to Adam at the begining of the world, that can make the waters of the world part. A Snakeskin Cloak that smells of the Apples of the Garden of Eden and the Book Of All Things which contains the song of the sun and the thoughts of the rain.

Only two can stop him … a young man who’s Grandfather was cursed to be half eagle half man … and a young woman who holds the last secret of Eve’s three beautiful daughters!

This is a rare and unique chance to hear these ancient tales in the light and on the tongue, stories untold for two generations and barely spoken of for decades.

Shonaleigh is a Druts’yla, and carries a living unbroken oral tradition passed down from Grandmother to Granddaughter by generations of Jewish women. Shonaleigh knows around four thousand tales that she can recall on request, using the lost art of ‘stories within stories’.
