The Bear’s Holiday Stories: ‘The Silent Bell’ by Ben Parsons Pirco Pirco
For the second year in a row, we’re ringing in the holiday season with a special treat. We’re bringing you stories from The Bear, Berlin’s one-of-a-kind storytelling event.
The final story in this series is called “The Silent Bell” and comes from Ben Parsons.
Ben was born in the English Midlands. In the 1990s he lived in Japan, went on to work for British Airways, and later became a Shiatsu and Pilates teacher. Married with kids, Ben lives in Potsdam and is a certified Feldenkrais Method teacher with a focus on helping handicapped kids surpass our expectations and achieve their own potential.
