Milo Mietzner, a storyteller from Stillwater, will entertain audiences Friday at the Brainerd Public Library in recognition of National Storytelling Week, Nov. 12-18.
Mietzner will perform for young children at 10:15 a.m. and for all ages at 4 p.m. There is no admission fee.
The Eclectic Cafe in downtown Brainerd will host a show for teen-agers and adults in the adjacent, non-smoking Eclectic Center at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the door for $2, which includes a coupon worth $1 off a beverage.
Mietzner's storytelling programs, called Spiral Bound Adventures, combine ecology and self awareness to create simple messages for people of all ages. Multicultural folktales, original stories and improvisation lead the audience members to think and feel deeply about who they are in relation to the larger world.
The "Spiral' refers to an ancient symbol of a journey or path. The center of a spiral represents the Truth, the Self, the Way, etc. A person becomes more balanced and centered by living with integrity to his or her nature. A Spiral Bound Adventure is two part: introducing the search for inner truth, for values, and then empowering the individual to consciously live up to them.
Mietzner, an alumnus of the Natural Resources Program at Central Lakes College, has entertained thousands of people for over four years. As an environmental educator, he discovered story to be a valuable teaching tool. Contact Mietzner at (651) 430-2483 or email@example.com
