becoming a storyteller...
"stories move in circles. they don't move in straight lines. so it helps if you listen in circles. there are stories inside stories and stories between stories, and finding your way through them is as easy and as hard as finding your way home. and part of the finding is getting lost. and when you're lost, you start to look around and listen."
"Story is learning, celebrating, healing, and remembering. Each part of the life process necessitates it.
...it enriches the individual, emotional and cultural development, and perhaps ultimately, the more mysterious development of the soul".
(the importantance of answering a question with a story...as a parent, to teach my kids deeper levels of thinking, reflection, etc.)
(what are the key details that will help the audience appreciate the moment of change)
Super, super excited about this storytelling workshop. Loved the prep reading-totally resonated. Can't wait to see how this unfolds in my future...
