StoriesWork is a most unusual organization which has kept my interest for many years. What has impressed me most is the method of learning through storytelling, appropriate to so many subjects. I look forward to receiving the StoriesWork quarterly newsletter, The Seeing “I”. which brings new and exciting information - and especially fascinating stories. StoriesWork is unique in its contribution.

The Great!

StoriesWork is a remarkable service whose premise appears simple but whose effect yields lasting depth of understanding. Using a specialized collection of short, focused folk tales from cultures around the world, trained volunteers are able to elicit comments and shared conversation from populations who are not normally given to intimate discussion. I know the effectiveness of StoriesWork from being a member of a StoriesWork session and again in a volunteer training workshop and also being one of the consultants for a psychiatrist who was a co-leader for a workshop. I am a curriculum and training designer and without reservation I can say I have not encountered a program which could in a single afternoon provoke a shift in understanding and a lasting barometer for one's own behavior. Perhaps not inconsequentially, these workshops also provide a source of laughter and joy for its participants.

The Great!

Stories and guided discussion of the power struggles between husband and wife have given my husband and me a sense of shared humanity (and shared humor) in our day-to-day differences. The fine-tuned, intelligently honed stories are koans for everyday use.
