Storyteller, Ilene Evans

A storytelling program to lift the spirits and focus the fires of resilience and renewal.

Hosted by Carolyn Raffensperger

Ilene sings the songs of resistance to shore up the soul and kindle the come-uppance spirit. She will tell us the stories we need to hear as the news of the day dull, enrages and sends the spirit whirling. It is the heart that must stay strong. It is the heart which must be sustained when all else is lost, or in danger. The heart carries us forward in the darkest night and the longest struggle. The gates of hell cannot prevail against a heart filled with love.
