Fosterville Ecovillage Present:

A Solstice Performance of Story and Myth
Featuring Storyteller Brian Rohr


Date: Friday, December 18 – 7:00pm (doors open at 6:45pm)
Location: Forsterville – 4629 SE 64th Ave, Portland, OR
Cost: See below

Every year the world lives, dies and is reborn once again, as the sun gradually recedes to the darkest night of the year and then returns us back to light. In celebration of this annual transition, the Fosterville Ecovillage and Storyteller Brian Rohr invite the community to ‘honor the dark’ and ‘wake the light’ by engaging in the ancient tradition of wintertime myth-telling, listening to myth and story celebrating the themes of darkness, light, creation and the winter solstice.


Monetary and Gift Offering

Everyone is welcome. It will be a sliding scale donation of $12-$20 though no one will be turned away. If you cannot bring money, please bring something else to offer – fresh vegetables from your garden, homemade jam, beautiful weavings, fermented veggies, honey from your bees, a unique original poem handwritten on special parchment, eggs from your chickens… you get the idea! Something unique, local and special. If you can’t bring that, then just bring yourself.
