Publisher's Summary

"On the other side of the villages was the vast, infinite Forest. It was the land of mystery, lore and legend and I had always been drawn to it...When my eyes alighted on it, everything came together once more. I knew what I had to do. I needed to leave. I needed to dream. I was going to be a revolutionary, simply now because I had that eternal currency that all revolutions deal in: Hope."

Unhappy with the stifling monotony of everyday life, a storyteller decides to leave everything behind. The First Storyteller recounts the incredible and transformative journey that the storyteller embarks upon. Through a wide variety of styles and genres, the book draws upon the very idea of stories to bring to you a unique tale that is simultaneously funny, tragic and hopeful. It brings to the forefront the emotional turmoil of a deeply conflicted individual, and in the end, the question becomes not what is at the end of the path, but whether the person who starts the journey would be the same as the one who ends it.

incredibly beautiful book (rewilding/embodiment)

while I was disappointed with the way it has been read, (lack of emotion, lack of understanding) ...
I am a changed person because I read this book. it is so powerfully vulnerable, so gut wrenching, so joyful!
the book reminds you of your humanity and celebrates it.
the book is practically a manual for rewilding and embodiment.
the first storyteller helps you to come back and reconnect and listen and be in your body in the present. to feel anger for eg, physically... to feel arousal, physically, to feel exhaustion, to be able to meet the parts of you within you who are holding the joys the messages the pain. to be able to let go of the compulsive need to reason and deduce and analyse ... all of it based on the programming that has been done to you ... instead to be present... to actually see whats there... to interact with it...
the book holds space to help you to feel broken, scared, blind, hopeful, powerful, joyful... essentially it says, acknowledge and own and build a relationship with your feelings... so feel.
read this book. it will take you to the darkest places within you and then it will help you embrace that darkness and that embrace will light up your being...
