I have been a spiritual seeker since I was a teenager. I was attracted to stories because of the way they map out the inner life . I studied mythology extensively and then found out that I had a talent for storytelling. Beginning in 1989, at the age of 21, I began telling stories in schools all over the south of England. In seven years I gave over two thousand performances in three hundred schools.
But then, after years of intense inner work, I had a profound creative and spiritual breakthrough: stories started welling up inside me with a life of their own! A flow of images, a stream of words, and I would simply tell what was coming to me. Although I never knew what was coming next, by the time I had finished I had told a coherent and well structured story!
But surprising as this was, what was most moving was that each story carried a clear and inspiring spiritual teaching. It were as if my soul were speaking to me in story form, opening my heart and mind to love and wisdom. I had a sense that something far larger than my conscious mind was offering me a precious gift and inviting me to share it with the world. I am still deeply grateful for this gift and totally dedicated to this calling.
I have told over a thousand such “intuitive stories” in the last 18 years, for adults and children. This site contains the very best of the stories that I’ve told for adults since 1996.
I’m going through my back catalog and selecting my favourites, so new stories will be appearing here regularly. Soon I’ll be creating new material, and the best of that will go up here too.
This work is my labour of love and, for now, I’m making it freely available. If you enjoy the stories, let me know here. On each story page there is also a donate button where you can express your appreciation!
