The Love Maker

Story Ceremony & Workshop

January 2023

Date Coming Soon

Step into a story journey where you come face to face with The Maker of Love...

Travel through the vehicle of story through the most intimate channels of your heart. 

Through myth, music, movement, interactive reflective experiences, and three sprigs of magic, this highly experiential storytelling event invites your active participation as you explore your relationship to love.

Through receiving a story, interpersonal reflection, and movement we will examine if we are living through old myths and stories that no longer serve us, inquire about what old stories are asking to be healed through us, and be invited to weave a new one. 



"Leah lives in story, it resonates in her being – as a teller, as a writer/thinker, as an activist/world changer, as a contemporary artist rooted in the ancient. She knows the alchemy of myth and the miracle of life, and the tangible magic of language performed."

-Joe Lambert, The Story Center

What past attendees have to say:

“I attended Leah’s Love Maker workshop at Burning Man in 2018.  I dare say that it changed my life.  Leah and her guides craftily wove incredibly powerful heart-opening exercises into an imaginative and beautiful mystical storyline.  I lost myself almost immediately and emerged at the other end totally open and ready for love.

~Daniel Z

Leah's Love Maker story workshop was an amazingly unique experience that you feel like epitomizes why we come to Burning Man. We were woven through a story combining interactive stops with our fellow workshop mates that both enhanced and illuminated the session. I came out with great new insight to help with my journey. Highly recommended!

Your Guides

Leah Lamb is a writer, storyteller, and story ceremonialist. She holds a masters in Social Work, and degrees in experiential education and environmental education through performance. Her studies in theater include The Williamstown Theatre Festival, the Eric Morris Technique, and with Sandy Meisiner at The Neighborhood Playhouse, in NYC, where she worked off-broadway at the Lucille Lortel Theater.

She is a lifelong learner, and has studied with many of the great storytellers of our time. And her greatest teacher of story has been a long tale called The Whale Dreamer.  Her commitment to this story has taken her to the edges of the earth and back, as she caught and learned to tell this mythic story of our time.

She has spoken about and taught about storytelling as a sacred art at Google, Hollyhock, a variety of retreats, and continues to produce storytelling events and tour Story Ceremonies across the country.

John Fitzgerald, BFA, Rhythm Facilitator, Trainer, and Coach

Before I fell in love with the transformational impact of coaching, I spent decades as a degreed percussionist performing jazz and classical music, and the amazing music of cultures from around the world. Rhythms, cycles and improvisation have always been central to my joy and passion, the spontaneous personal expression that is such a vital part of all living cultures, and indeed, all our lives.

I bring to my coaching and facilitation the great gifts music has given me: deep curiosity, the capacity to listen for rhythm, relationship and cadence, and an ability to trust my intuition and improvise naturally as we explore both areas of harmony and of dissonance in pursuit of your goals and dreams.

In addition to my one on one work with individuals and organizational leaders, I have designed and facilitated team-building, communication and leadership workshops for over 20 years.
