We all have an inner guide inside. Sometimes this guide speaks to us in dreams, and at other times in whatever interior language we are open to: images, words, music, flashes of inspiration. Stories are another such language. When we open to this language inside ourselves, our guide can become an Inner Storyteller.
Would you like to strengthen your connection to your inner world and your creativity?
This workshop will offer you the chance to open up more to your intuition and inner guidance. Working with the language of fairy tales, we will learn more about creative energy, deepest longing and our heart’s desire.
- Tap into your source of creativity and wisdom
- Learn to trust your intuition
- Open up to your heart’s deepest longings
- Develope a relationship with your inner guidance
Practicing the skills of Intuitive Storytelling, we will open up to our inner visualising and inner listening, and invite our intuition to express itself through us. Telling such stories requires presence, self-compassion and trust. Together we will create an atmosphere of safety and mutual support that facilitates this tender, powerful exploration.
Feedback from Previous Introductory Workshops…
The workshop with Leo was fantastic! I´m not a experienced storyteller, but I learned so many useful things at the workshop. I was amazed that I was able to tell stories that made sense, after just one day. I have also used these techniques in an intuitive music concert, and in my writing process, and they have worked great!
I liked the very gentle, step-by-step approach that helped me get in touch with an inner creativity, wisdom, intuition, guidance. The spaciousness around the exercises provided a warm environment of no stress, supportiveness and safety. It got me in touch with deep longings and helped me to see the value of intuition and that I am more in touch with it than I thought. I learned that it’s possible and very valuable to listen to my inner voice. Pause – listen to my inside – trust what comes up. There is a sort of ‘relationship’ to my inside, my intuition, which exists and can be gently supported and deepened. I get the sense that this is a road to much more clarity, inner freedom and love. All in all the workshop was close to perfect.
This was a very intense, very touching process of discovery: uncovering the constant flow of stories to which I have access.
I signed up to this course with a feeling that this retreat was not any ordinary storytelling course – and it certainly was not. By the end of the course I felt unusually inspired and nourished, and that my creativity and love for stories had been renewed.
The working method which Leo introduced felt a bit like combining meditation with creative storytelling with an emphasis on fantasy and connection to the intuition.
Leo’s years-long studies into both the outer and the inner stories has made him a gifted storyteller, a patient and kind teacher and a creator of touching tales and wonderful stories.
A safe and heart-opening atmosphere was quickly built up in the group due to Leo’s honest and generous and wise presence.
This retreat gave such joy to my soul, and I hope to continue this type of work in other workshops with Leo.
This workshop was really exciting and I enjoyed absolutely everything about it. It was very well organised and you created a great atmosphere. It has been really wonderful to discover that this method really works and that I can trust that the story will come. Vulnerability can be a key to great things!
When I went to Leo Sofer’s course on intuitive storytelling I had already worked a bit with improvised storytelling, but the workshop changed my attitude towards the work and gave me a new and much more meaningful approach that made it much deeper, alive and colorful. We entered a place where new stories came alive in an effortless way. I have continued the work with a colleague and entered a new unknown world of wonderful spontaneous stories from a store that never dries up. I get suprised over and over again that it is possible to ask a question or raise a topic and get answers from the intuitive stories. I have also told spontaneous stories in front of different audiences together with my colleague after the workshop and am amazed that it is possible to make interesting stories that work on the spot. I am very grateful for Leo’s workshop and his work has inspired me deeply.
I was one of the two danish participants that have sneaked into the fairlytale house where this course being held in Norway, and it was really worth the travel. Leo Sofer’s intuitive stories are something quite special, but we all have intuition, and now we have got inspiration to use it in new ways in our stories.

I am super hungry for more. This was so good for me, for I was incredibly scared when I arrived, and just so positive when I left. And the people were fantastic!
I experienced Intuitive storytelling as a way of being together which connects people together in harmony. It was like going into a new and unknown world. It was deeply meaningful and calming to find inward springs and allow them to pour forth. The treasures in the inner landscape took forms that were alive, multitudinous and full of meaning. Our different natures became so clear, like musical instruments with a deep, different beautiful sound. The openness was pleasant, full of meaning and educational.
I have looked forward to Leo’s workshop for many years. I knew that I had a muse who spoke to me, and absolutely relished the chance to share the experience of speaking in the moment. The workshop was everything I hoped for and more, and I long for more of the same. I would love to continue working this way in a peer group, if that were possible. More workshops in England please Leo! Life is a little bare without luscious stories to fill it!
The two days were carefully structured, building understanding of the process, trust in ourselves and each other. I have learned to trust my inner self and to actively ask for it’s involvement. I have realized that there is a bottomless well of stories that I can draw upon and also receive from other people. I have loved experiencing how stories speak to my mind, my heart and my soul.
I feel like I have passed through a doorway. My experience of intuitive storytelling was gently powerful and very affirming. I feel a renewed confidence in my ability to communicate with my indwelling presence – in all aspects of my life, not just storytelling. I feel lighter, more open about my continuing journey with self, more confident and a gentle buzz of anticipation.
What I really enjoyed about the workshop was Leo’s presence; his ability to help us all enter our own vulnerability with compassion. The passion for the storytelling was clear and inspiring – and the guidance to listen to the callings from within was expertly and sensitively explained. He made it easy to drop from the intellect into intuition – in a non-judgemental way towards self.
I loved the way Leo played music to bring us back into the moment. Everything felt very balanced. He was compassionate, caring and attentive to people’s sharings. He was always able to respond – to support people in whatever was happening with them – and reflected it beautifully. No shame. All compassion and excellent tips for better practice, helping each find their way on their path – whatever level they are practicing at. So supportive and encouraging this lost art. Thank you a million times.
