with John De Kadt
Monday, September 25 7-9:00pm
Story means “store house. When a story possesses reminders and meaning needed during challenging times they become wisdom stories, sacred stories or places of treasured remembrance. It is then, when we have lost our way, that we can reach back into the “store house” of our ancestors to remember and revision what it is we burn for and how to awaken.
For all of human history we have been sharing in the oral tradition of storytelling. It was a central vehicle for humans to impart wisdom, entertain, teach and retain information from generation to generation.
In the past 100 years this enchanting, educational and heart-warming art has been all but lost on modern culture.
Come join us for a mesmerizing evening of wisdom stories and drumming with acclaimed world traveling percussionist, poet and storyteller Johnde Kadt. This event is oriented towards adults however it is certainly a magical journey for all humans big and small who love to be carried on the wings of adventure, myth and magic.

~ Lisa Silverman“I love John de Kadt .. he is a brother of my heart and to all in recovery. Hearing the music, the story and the humor involved in his delivery just sends me. My favorite part of the story was when the horse said he knows a lot about women and what they want, fresh organic kale. I felt like a child at bedtime.”
~ Nanci Weston Adair
