If Music is the tie that keeps communities together then Storytelling must be the fabric of which it is made. Storytellers bring the Hero’s journey to life, teaching lessons of place, connection and morality along the way. Culture always has been driven by the Storytellers and it likely always will. Join us in the Storytelling Guild it will empower you and your community more than you can imagine. You can practice Storytelling throughout your days at White Pine, but to earn a patch you must tell a story accurately in circle. A powerful spiritual practice is the skill of Tree Preaching that Stalking Wolf taught to Tom. You can Tree Preach in your car, in your room or at your Sit Spot. It helps if you feel some solitude so you can tell your stories out loud. Practice them with passion. A nice scout trick, if you are worried about people thinking you are crazy, is to hold a phone up while you Tree Preach. You can also utilize Tree Preaching as a powerful Inner Tracking practice, the Trees will listen deeply to your problems and concerns.
