Storytelling is essential because of its central role in human experience, culture, and history since the dawn of humankind. Storytelling stimulates our brain in a unique way, as we connect with the message we not only absorb the information but feel the emotion too. We all have unique life experiences and stories to tell. Sharing our stories with others can provide opportunities for learning, insight, understanding and connection. The wisdom of others can also be an essential tool in helping us learn more about ourselves.
