“Door to Imagination,” a storytelling workshop will be held on Saturday, November 5, 9:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., at Pioneer Elementary School in Lafayette.   According to Odds Bodkin, “we’re all storytellers.”   This workshop examines imagination as a basic skill for today’s teachers, parents, psychologists, clergy––anyone who works with today’s children.   Developed over seven years of graduate level teaching and decades of real world experience, Odds Bodkin’s training is a step by step process that incorporates music and storytelling to train teens and adults to imagine freely and tell stories.  Mr. Bodkin combines performance, spoken word history, the insights of brain science and refreshing “cognitive experiments” to awaken the Inner Storyteller––the ancient connection between the Five Imaginations and language.   Tickets are $30.  For more information and to purchase tickets to any Odds Bodkin events, visit
