The Bard’s Confession: A Storytelling

July 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MDT


Magical Thinking

Host: Mary Roberts

We all hold strong beliefs, stronger than what evidence or experience would indicate is true. As kids we believe in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. As adults, we believe that we will win the lottery or if we wear our lucky shirt to the game, our team will win. All a form of magical thinking.

But sometimes magical thinking works.

When we tell our personal stories of joy, suffering, laughter and chaos, they reflect our humanity as shaped and inspired by our physical world and our imagination. These stories help us make meaning of our experiences and when we look deeper and more honestly, they are the stories of our ancestors and for our descendants. It’s how we remember who we are and where we’re going.

Tonight, we will have six storytellers who will recount personal true tales that reflect the sacred triumvirate of art, nature, and the human condition. The stories will reflect a moment in time or a game-changing event that involves conflict, transformation and resolution.

Interested in being one of our storytellers? Tell us your story of when magic (and serendipity!) appeared in your life—expected or not.

Stories should be ten minutes or less, true, personal and told by heart. Please contact host, Mary Roberts, by May 1.
