Legendary Iceland - Land of Fire & Ice, Legacy of Legend.

This 90-minute presentation blends together my love of Iceland and its mythology with the amazing landscapes and fascinating history.  I partner with my mom, Ieda Jónasdóttir Herman, to bring a fun and entertaining look at Iceland from someone who grew up there.  Please contact me here for scheduling or click here to link to our Legendary Iceland site.

Vitality of a Viking Presented with Ieda Jónasdóttir Herman
A  90-minute presentation of living life with the Vitality of a Viking, based on Scandinavian ideals and Ieda's own philosophy. I outline her secrets of outlook and action that can help participants create happiness and vitality in life, from 30's to 90's and beyond, but is especially relevant to the 50+ crowd. The session is prefect for community organizations, retirement communities, women's clubs or groups seeking motivational speakers.

Icelandic Cooking Demonstration
The food and cultural history of Iceland is unique to Scandinavia and dates back to the time of the Vikings. I will prepare two dishes from my cookbook while sharing the history and trends of food in Iceland from settlement, to former days, to present. Samples for taste testing included as part of the demonstration. I partner with my mom, Ieda Jónasdóttir Herman, to present from our co-authored cookbook.

Iceland Folk Tales - Trolls & Legends of Iceland

This one-hour presentation provides an entertaining look at Icelandic folklore from trolls to wiggle-waggle monsters and many things in between.  The mythology is a blend of Viking legends, stories from the Sagas, and  folklore brought from other countries.  How the Icelandic people have incorporated it into daily life is both fascinating and refreshing.  The warnings, lessons and instruction presented in the stories reflect a wisdom, tolerance and common-sense approach to life.  I share stories and talk about the meanings -  suitable as an entertaining hour for children ages 6 and up. 

Public appearances and speaking engagements are customized for the venue and organization. 

Per session charge plus travel expenses.
