Sharing and reflecting on stories from different spiritual paths or cultural backgrounds helps build bridges between people with different belief systems. This sharing and reflection lie at the heart of this work. Depending on context and requirements, the process of each project encourages participants to see beyond the superficial ‘other’ness of fellow participants, and to glimpse the brother, sister, parent and child within the story-sharer. People of Faith are sometimes surprised to learn of other Faiths having similar “teaching tales” to their own, while those without faith may find they learn more about the true nature of faith itself.
Stories shared across cultural divides can help reduce or overcome prejudice, address discrimination and nurture the possibility of future co-existence with minimal tensions and even active cooperation.
Plesae contact me, to explore how my work might benefit your circumstances, whether as solo practitioner, in partnership with other practitioner(s) or indeed in support of your existing team working in Inter-Faith & Cross-Cultural Projects. For example, my performance set “Many Tongues in the Holy Land” has been used as part of wider inter-faith projects to foster reflection and mature debate on the issues.
