Why Storytelling?

Humans are wired for story, drawn to a story, like a moth to a flame. 

Science shows us that people listening to a story, empathically, through mirror neurons, live in the events and the emotions of the story.  And stories are like fish hooks, once we’re caught in a story there is no way out but through, we have to know the end.

Then there are the benefits for the storyteller.  The reflective and creative process at the heart of personal storytelling is transformational.  The act of being heard, the act of truly listening, are deeply soulful and heart warming.

But to find your voice, tell with intention and creativity, tell as part gift, part message, takes courage, skill, support and practice.  And that is where Story Wise comes in.

Who is Story Wise?

My name is Kate Lawrence and I help individuals, groups and communities become better speakers and better storytellers, skilled at finding, crafting and telling stories from their own lives, in their own voice; skilled at sharing a message that is compelling and memorable.

I love to see people discover the meaning-making and deep connection to self and others that is part of the process of story crafting and sharing.  I love to see people discover the connections that their history has with their message.

I love to see groups bond as they grapple and play with the clay of their lives to create stories to share.

I also love to share my stories, enthral and enchant you, tell you with story, how and why I believe and dream, and how I make meaning of this 'one wild and precious life'.

Thank you for your feedback today Kate. It was very helpful and just what I needed to hear. Your acute listening skills allow you to access just what is needed to create a “sharp” story.
