About Stories With Spirit :

Stories for the New Millennium

Stories with Spirit are events showcasing traditional stories for older audiences. These stories feature “once upon a time” as with happy endings as well as not so happy endings, plot twists, darker themes, and humor. We work with stories that look at the shadows and the light, the things that haunt and drive us forward.

These events are brought to you by Rachel Ann Harding and Cooper Braun.

Cooper Braun

Cooper Braun was born in Boulder, Colorado. He grew up without a television and so found a love for storytelling from records and cassette tapes. Drawn to performance and theater from a young age, Cooper started as an actor, has a BA in Theater from Union College and has been working as a professional theater technician the last eight years. Returning to the world of live storytelling last year he now co-hosts the Boulder Story Circle and is a member of the Rocky Mountain Storytelling Board.

“Masterful storytellers. A must see for those in love with the genre.” Liz Macera
A powerful and entertaining hour of stories that you may think you’ve heard before, but you’ve probably not heard them told this way–or this well. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience oral story-telling in a manner that is true to the tradition while occasionally stretching the envelope. – Pop
