Do you want to learn how to tell a story soulfully? In this 15 minute video introduction to my new Storytelling Foundations training, I explain
~ three benefits of oral storytelling
~ four essential elements of an oral story
~ how the myth of Indra’s Net can help you tell in a soulful way
Storytelling Foundations is a series of video trainings, with optional online participative Story Circles. Here I offer principles which apply to both personal stories, including Moth-like five minute slam tales and traditional wonder tales.
The complete set of videos will become gradually available from November to December, 2022 here. Story Circle dates for next year. Subscribe below to my newsletter to be informed of the latest video release.
