Eve’s Three Beautiful Daughters: a weekend telling with Shonaleigh

21st – 23rd October in Bethesda at the Neaudd Ogwen, High Street, Bethesda, Gwynedd LL57 3AN

Eve’s Three Beautiful Daughters belongs to the Cycle of Hillel, which is the first of twelve epic, latticed, interlinked cycles of stories passed down through generations of Jewish women.

When Adam and Eve are thrown out of paradise, they are each given a number of gifts.

Among the gifts given to Eve is a bag of treasure – not treasure of gold, silver, or jewels, but treasure of a far more precious nature – five hundred and forty-seven herbs, seeds, and plants that will cure all mortal ills.

You are invited to a unique, immersive weekend of storytelling for adults with Shonaleigh, the world-renowned tradition bearer and storyteller.

This is a rare chance to hear these ancient tales in the light and on the tongue, stories untold for two generations and barely spoken of for decades.

Shonaleigh is a Druts’yla, and carries on a living unbroken oral tradition passed down from grandmother to granddaughter. She knows around 4,000 tales that she can recall on request, using the lost art of ‘stories within stories’.

This is an unmissable opportunity for anyone interested in stories or in oral and lost cultures to come and help document and archive this tradition through listening, requesting stories, and asking questions.

Join us either for the whole weekend, or for the Saturday evening only.
