The other day I had a meeting with the head of the educator’s continual education organization of a large city over here. At some point, she asked me to “speak freely” about how I see storytelling and the ways training in storytelling can support her audiences.
Meaning – she invited me to say what I think and feel in storyteller’s language.
After listening for a couple of minutes she stopped me and with an expression of a wonderful realization on her face she said, “Coming to think about it, storytelling does not necessarily need to be connected to reading and writing”.
Thank you Goddess of storytelling. This does not happen too often but when it does – there is great joy in my heart.
