Elly Crichton Stuart

Storyteller/Performer/Writer/Educator

Intergenerational Work


Following the sudden death of her husband Elly took a sabbatical and moved to the north of Scotland to live as part of the Findhorn Community. In that time she faced her demons and learnt to live from a more authentic place. Her work as a storyteller has transformed through teachers such as Richard Olivier and through practising mindfulness since 2009. She She was invited to run workshops at Findhorn and now works in a very different way from before, allowing the story to bring its medicine through the mirror it presents.

Invited to sit in an Elders Breakfast during a workshop called Soultracker, Elly has been exploring what it means to be an Elder for the last 7 years. Inspired by her grandmother, a courageous Irish woman whose stories still resonate, and by teachers such as Joanna Macy Thich Nhat Hanh and Stephanie Mines, she worked as an Elder at the Art of Mentoring in 2017 where 300 people came together to create a healthy village.

Last year, in addition to Storytelling, Elly worked as an Elder for The 8 Shields Institute through Nature Culture Regeneration workshops on Dartmoor. She will be part of the Art of Mentoring village in Falkland, Fife, this July, and gives talks about the opportunities available now for older people interested in creating a healthy future for our children and their children's children.
