ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Storytelling as Relationship
Storytelling is natural to humans. It predates written language and formal education. Ever since our development as a species on the African savanna, storytelling has been a key process for sharing vivid experiences and building connections with each other.
But our modern "industrial culture" tends to treat stories as objects to be fashioned and presented, rather than as acts of relationship.
In this webinar, we'll look at ways to treat storytelling as the set of interactive processes it has always been at its core--and learn how we can allow stories to engage us and our listeners in a dance of mutual imagination.
Doug Lipman told his first story by accident to a school-ful of young adolescents with "behavior problems" For the first time, he experienced true connection with those very resistant students.
In the nearly 5 decades since then, Doug has told and taught storytelling on several continents and to people from many walks of life, from NASA scientists to oil company executives, health care workers and storytellers at all levels of mastery.
