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 Meredith Little. She was invited to run workshops at Findhorn and now works extensively with adults as well as children.

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 9 years. Inspired by her grandmother, a courageous Irish woman whose stories still resonate, and by teachers such as Joanna Macy and Thich Nhat Hanh, she co-facilitated Elder's breakfasts at the Art of Mentoring in 2017 and 2019 where 250 people came together to create a healthy village. Last year, in addition to storytelling and teaching, Elly worked as an Elder for The 8 Shields Institute through Nature Culture Regeneration workshops on Dartmoor.
