"The art and craft of storytelling from the inside out. The reader is taken on a fascinating and visceral journey into the heart of storytelling, living alongside the author as he falls in love with his new calling, wrestling inner and outer demons along the way. If you are even remotely interested in the power of story to transform your life, read this book. Richard Olivier, founding voice within Mythodrama and Artistic Director of Olivier Mythodrama Geoff shows how stories can take us beyond "happily ever after", into a world of adventure and passion, imagination and heart, in which the listener and teller can participate in the whole of existence. Judith Hemming, Founder, MovingConstellations In "Coming Home to Story" Geoff Mead does a lovely job of enchanting the world, of breathing a touch of magic into our daily existence. Omair Ahmad, Author of "The Storyteller's Tale" Written with an insight, rigour and vulnerability that moved me on many levels, I can heartily recommend this book to anyone who senses the possibility of a deeper connection with the story world of imagination and meaning.
