Surprise! Here comes the Trickster!: David Strabala. EP 246

Or listen to an audio version HERE on Anchor.fm

It isn’t surprising that my guest today, David Strabala (STRAY ba la), identifies with the archetype of the trickster in stories, or that this energy called him to make the award-winning feature documentary, “What Is Synchronicity?” He carried a trickster role from birth, as the surprising 13th child of parents who were 50 and 46. As tricksters often do, he has crossed many boundaries in his life, starting with the two generations he straddled — those of his siblings and of his nieces and nephews, five of whom are older than he is. On the way to making his synchronicity film, he threaded career boundaries as a journalist, clinical social worker and storyteller. He brings both personal and professional stories of the trickster today for healing our world. www.whatissynchronicity.com
