The Seven Stories of Your Life. 19 January 2020 Amsterdam
This remarkable and monumental seminar at last provides a comprehensive answer to the age-old riddle of whether there are only a small number of ‘basic stories’ in the world we tell ourselves and others. Using a wealth of examples, from ancient myths and folk tales via the plays and novels of great literature to the popular movies and TV soap operas of today, it shows that there are seven archetypal themes which recur throughout every kind of storytelling.
But this is only the prelude to an investigation into how and why we are ‘programmed’ to imagine stories in these ways, and how they relate to the inmost patterns of human psychology. Drawing on a vast array of examples, from Proust to detective stories, from the Marquis de Sade to E.T., Peter de Kuster then leads us through the extraordinary changes in the nature of storytelling over the past 200 years.
Peter analyses why evolution has given us the need to tell stories and illustrates how storytelling has provided a uniquely revealing mirror to mankind’s psychological development over the past 5000 years.
This seminar of one day opens up in an entirely new way our understanding of the real purpose storytelling plays in our lives, and will be a talking point for years to come.
The price of this one day storytelling seminar is Euro 395 excluding VAT per person
