How to Grow a Story: the Three Essential Processes
How to Grow a Story: the Three Essential Processes

Adult's Collection of Stories

Doug Lipman photoFive Hours of Stories for the Fully Developed Adult Imagination

by Doug Lipman

A feast of story journeys that will feed your mind and your heart—and save you money at the same time.

Save Money and Save the Environment!

Buying the 5 CDs in a collection saves you $13.20 plus reduces packaging (compared to buying individual CDs). Buying them in mp3 format requires no packaging—and saves you shipping expenses as well as $30 off the price!

What This Collection Contains

This Collection contains five CD's (or 10 mp3 files), containing three programs normally sold separately for a total of $89.85:

1. The Soul of Hope

The Soul of Hope - coverThe great Jewish mystic, the Baal Shem Tov, found the Gates of the Forest, rediscovered the sacred fire, learned the ancient prayer, and, for the first time in nearly two millenia, spoke the ineffable Name.  Now, we have nothing left but the story. Can that possibly be enough?

The story, as I now tell it, is an epic. It takes place in heaven and on earth. It has dozens of characters. The main action spans seven generations, with flashbacks to the beginning of time. 

But to me, The Soul of Hope is the most succinct way that I know to accurately portray the balance between two apparently contradictory truths. We are not yet all that we are meant to be; we are not fully capable of the task before us. But what we do matters enormously; and there is hope.

The CD version contains 2 CDs.

2. Can You Hear The Silence - Hasidic Stories for the 21st Century 

Can You Hear the Silence? coverOriginal Hasidic stories and songs that speak to the joy, humor, mystery, and wisdom we've come to love in Jewish mystical stories - presented in a form that's accessible to listeners of any background.

The CD version contains a single CD.

3. Storytelling Companions: The Farewell Concert

Storytelling Companions coverJay O'Callahan and I performed my farewell concert at the legendary Passim Coffeehouse in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA on November 12, 2004. (I've moved to Oklahoma after 35 years in the Boston area.) 

We told stories - some never heard before - sang songs, and traded tales about our years as performers, workshop leaders, and coaching buddies. For both of us, our friendship has been a key artistic relationship, shaping much of our success as storytellers and workshop leaders.    

The program - which sold out in advance and was rewarded with a standing ovation - was an enjoyable evening of entertainment as well as a tribute to the importance of artists helping each other keep going, stay on track, and follow our deepest impulses.

The CD version contains 2 CDs.

Save Money, Get Convenience!

Compared to buying the CD's separately, buying the CD version of this collection saves you $13.20—and gives the convenience of a single vinyl CD case to hold all five CDs.

With the downloadable (mp3) version, you save much more: buying this collection in mp3 format saves you an additional $6.38 over buying them separately—and costs $49.88 less than buying the CD's separately!

Yours in storytelling,
