Back in the dim mists of time when Twitter was a bird sound and Facebook was two separate and unrelated words, storytelling was the first form of communication, and it’s one of the first forms of communication that we encounter as children. We learn and retain stories before we can even read.
As humans we crave stories. We love to hear stories and we love to share stories. There is a power in stories that can transform our lives – they capture our imagination and emotions, they can illustrate a teaching in a powerful way, and they can inspire and motivate us.
Storytelling is an essential part of every culture worldwide. It is how civilizations pass on insights from one generation to the next. It is how religions pass on their sacred teachings. And it is how we as parents share our values and lessons.
