Deena R. Weinstein has not received any gifts yet
Deena uses stories to entertain, teach, and heal. She has been telling in educational, retirement, hospital, and religious communities and at public venues for over thirty years. As a writer, poet, storyteller, and enthusiastic oral reader, Deena has created a unique presentation as a storyteller, combining her skills and experiences with her passion for living. As a registered therapist, she uses stories and visualizations in her private practice, “Life Transitions: Thriving with Illness, Aging, Dying and Loss.”
After living in rural central Maine for 40 years, Deena now resides in Portland not far from the homes of her adult son and daughter. Enjoying listening as much as telling, she can often be seen and/or heard at Port Veritas (Spoken Word) and at the gathering of the MOOSE herd!
Besides belonging to several story-telling organizations, Deena has served on the Executive Committee of the Healing Story Alliance; has been heard on WMPG radio, at the Time Gallery for First Friday Art Walk, and at Tellebrations. Her repertoire includes children’s stories, “folk jokes” that bring laughter to the elders with whom she works, Jewish tales, fables and personal narrations that heal, and original works she has written.
To contact Deena for a storytelling performance, work shop, or coaching please call: 207-478.2762.
