On the Power of Storytelling
“I grew up in a place where everybody was a storyteller, but nobody wrote. It was that kind of Celtic, storytelling tradition: everybody would have a story at the pub or at parties, even at the clubs and raves.”
On last week’s Practical Magic podcast, I interviewed author and storyteller Laura Jane Williams, we discussed why storytelling is something we do as human beings with human feelings, so on this week’s show I am diving into the subject in more detail, and share a story which has shaped and defined me as a person doing what I do in the world.
On the show I explore:
The stories that connect the dots and narratives of our creative lives and businesses.
How storytelling is a way of communicating ideas and beliefs.
Finding our ‘why’ and why this is so much more important than what we do, or how we do it.
The ability that stories have to connect to others through ‘brain to brain coupling’
Why stories are just ‘data with a soul’.
Why we need your voice, and ways to share your story.
Adult language warning, there are few colourful words peppered throughout the interview.
