This Sunday, 9/13, 3-4:30 pm (PST), join Nancy Wang and others for a storytelling tea party for girls 8 and up and for women of all ages! Bring a tea cup and tea, plus a four-minute story of a woman who influences your life with others in a breakout room.

Nancy will share excerpts from “Bittersweet,” her story about her mother, and Nina Simons, co-founder of Bioneers, will share a longer story.

This event has happened annually in Berkeley, CA, for the last 14 years, as a fundraiser to help support host Patricia Bulitt, who has been unable to work as she has lived with cancer for the last four year.

Storytelling with Eth-Noh-Tec, number 5

This episode: Tales by Moonlight!

Livestream on Thursday, Sept. 24, 5-5:30 pm PST

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6spIB8NAk7t9oiV5ru3H7Q

Listen with your Heart in this storytelling of stories from Pan-Asia to Asian America!

In many parts of Northern Asia, stories of the Moon’s alluring and guiding light are told in the Autumn chill. Though officially the Chinese Moon Festival starts on October 1, our celebration of the Moon begins a week early. We will share three of our favorite tales of Lady Moon: The “Tale of Chang’er” (or Lady Moon tale of China), Rabbit on the Moon (a Pan-Asian Buddhist tale) and Monkey Moon (a Tale of Lunar grasping foolishness from Tibet).

This series of online shows is free, but donations of all sizes are gratefully welcomed!

New shows premiere at 5 p.m. on the last Thursday of each month.

Past episodes include:

Episode 4: “Takashi’s Dream”

In honor of the 75th Anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States, we present our story of one Japanese atom bomb survivor’s journey from revenge to forgiveness.

Episode 3: Monkey King and the Pure Hearts

Foreign travelers cross a border to discover its civilians under a spell… A power hungry despot with a strange addiction… there are children in cages. Is this news from today’s current affairs? No! Eth-Noh-Tec performs an adventure from the famous sixteenth century, Ming Dynasty novel “Monkey King”.

Episode 2: “The Contagion” and “Onions”

This episode presents two stories, one from Tibet which we’ve retitled “Contagion” (adapted from “Boddhichitta”), and one from Korea, “Onions.” Both stories have been handed down from ancient times and distant cultures, yet have much to say about the here and now: epidemics, fear, illusion and assumptions. We share them in hopes of shedding a brighter light upon our journey towards compassion.
