ZOOMY Autumn Gathering on Fairytale and Storytelling Therapy

ZOOMY Autumn Gathering on Fairytale and Storytelling Therapy

Ocotber 2022 – via ZOOM

„If you don’t know the trees you may be lost in the forest, but if you don’t know the stories you may be lost in life.”

Siberian Elder


Every Spring fairytale-like Sintra hosts the International Seminar on Fairytale and Storytelling Therapy, a project born from Moonluza’s founder’s passion and interest in fairytales, stories, myths, legends and their therapeutic potential. Adriana divides her life between Portugal, where she lives and Poland, which she misses. This nostalgia led her to discover and actually experience the fairy-tale therapy for herself, through writing a fairy-tale based in legends from her home village and mountains. Writing the story was her way to travel back to her home mountains, forests and rivers of beautiful southern Poland. Letting imagination run free, it made a bridge between childhood haven and her new homeland of Portugal and the magical, inspirational town of Sintra, which she fell in love with.

Sintra Seminar is a 5-day ‘in person’ immersion, but since not every year everyone can join us in Portugal, here comes a gathering, which will happen in Autumn, via ZOOM, where everyone is welcome. 3 Days of presentations, workshops, practical components and time spent together (although virtually). Another opportunity to bring together specialists, academics, therapists, storytellers and other enthusiasts of fairy-tales and storytelling, and their therapeutic and healing potential.


Venue: ZOOM – but our imagination can take us anywhere -How about Pena Park?
