My name is Stina Gray and I am a storyteller with roots in Sweden and New Zealand. Ever since I first heard the story of The Woodswomen whispering in the woods, I have been on a journey of wandering and listening, collecting songs and stories wherever I go.
Growing up I spent most of my childhood barefoot, close to the sea, the bush and the hobbit hills of rural New Zealand. In 2008 I returned to Sweden and have since been exploring my roots in Scandinavia and the British Isles. I am based in Sweden but still move around a lot, living a semi-nomadic lifestyle. Sometimes you can find me on the streets of Stockholm with a heavy backpack full of books. Other times you might find me in the woods, singing songs and telling stories by the fire.
Currently I am writing a book about the forgotten stories of the Nordic woods and the return of the woodswomen. A book of rewilding storytelling, woodland wandering and reawakening to the whispers of nature. You can follow my wanderings here in my blog, Facebook and Instagram @stinagraysongsandstories and Soundcloud at Stina Gray - Songs & Stories.
I tell stories in both Swedish and English, in Sweden and abroad. I hold rewilding workshops, ceremonies and circles together with priestess Camilla Måne. As both a storyteller and astrologer, I work especially with what I call Storypath Astrology. For more information, visit my astrology page.
