Do you love stories? Silly question really, everyone loves stories, right?

Human language has evolved through telling stories, each of us share ancestors who huddled round crackling fires and regaled kin with tales of the hunt, of adventure, of wisdom, humour and supernatural terror.

With our brains hard-wired for story, the simple form of live storytelling is making a huge resurgence and the application of stories more celebrated than ever.

The Story Connection specialises in the use of stories to facilitate connection. This could be between groups of people, the natural world, new audiences, the inner world, or useful ideas and teachings.

This can be delivered through:

Storytelling performances

Workshops, training and coaching

Development programmes

Consultations

Storytelling can mean many things to many people, but since you are here, it’s likely you are interested in using stories for one of the following:
