Giant’s Heart is a school based in Scotland yet inspired and modelled on the Nordic ‘Folkehøjskole’ or Folk High School.
Whether you wish to tell traditional folk stories, personal tales, or create your own stories and share them, the school promises to offer students a life enriching and transformational learning experience.
As practitioners of storytelling, we have a wealth of experience to share with our students.
Svend-Erik is a Danish storyteller who has worked internationally as a storyteller, story coach, and theatre director for over 30 years. He started creating his unique coaching method while teaching in a folkehøjskole in the 1990’s. The method has been described as Fluid Storyguiding by one of his students. During the pandemic, he transferred his in-depth storytelling masterclasses to the online environment, providing the original impetus for Giant’s Heart.
Let me listen to your idea, your seedling of a story or a fully composed tale which you may have told many times. You will find that my feedback always adds new dimensions to the telling.
Write me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and lets see if we can find a time for a free coaching session. First one is free introductory half hour session. If you like what you get, we can arrange for more coaching on a pay what you can basis.
