The Story of Parzival is as old as our ancestors. It is still very much alive today. The majestic town of Ptuj and the country Slovenia carry the heart of this myth like nowhere else on earth. Storytelling has always been about turning to our roots for sustenance and for imagining a future full of heart and inspired tales and deep conversation. This is the essence of our symposium. Come to a place where the screens are switched off, where all are invited, teachers, carers of others, young and old, troubadours and storytellers all. Come let us listen, tell, sing and be well together. Let the grail of the myth be a part of your story as we share this extraordinary tale and take time to reflect on the magic and healing that shines through active listening and inspired telling, whether that be in a school, a pub, a theatre, a landscape or a castle. Welcome to this unique symposium of Parzival!
