Welcome to Sagoheim, a sanctuary where trees can speak, the rivers sing songs and the mountains whisper in an ancient tongue known only to those who listen from the very soles of their feet.
My name is Stina Gray and I am a storyteller, writer and ethnologist with roots in Sweden and New Zealand. As a storyteller, I work with folktales and myths, as well as writing my own songs and stories mainly inspired by the nature, seasons and mythological landscape of Northern Europe. I am especially passionate about the kind of storytelling that bridges the gap between humans and trolls.
I hope that my songs and stories kindle a spark of magic in your fire hearth and inspire you go on your own journey of discovery, tuning in to the stories around you and within you, awakening your senses to the songs of the earth and dreaming of the land.

”What I experienced during Stina’s storytelling is something beyond this physical reality. It isn’t just a person telling a story. This storyteller transcends dimensions and time. She sits there in her rocking chair and when she begins to speak a portal is opened to a world of stories, myth and magic. And suddenly you are there, in the story realm and on the floor in front of the woman’s feet at the same time. As if the magic takes place in a NOW that just then and there feels eternal! The ability to bring one back to ones childhood is so valuable. It is as if one is given the chance to look inside and through one’s inner child see, bring fourth and process that which is ready to heal and see the light again. I am so grateful that I got to meet Stina and listen to her stories” – Therese Jord, course participant, Sweden
