The Lost Art of Learning from Stories

A true teaching story is about the mechanics of transformation. To learn from them, you must pay attention to the function of the parts of the story along the way, not just where the journey gets you. Today we are very clear on the value of story for more effective teaching, manipulating, or getting a point across to the masses. But we have lost the art of learning from story in part because we have lost the art of telling true, teaching stories. To tell true teaching stories we must work diligently to get out of the lies we’ve been told, the lies we tell ourselves, and being lost in the Cultural Story of our time. Join us this week as host and shaman, Christina Pratt, explores how we learn from true teaching stories. We must recover from our desire to be told only the stories we want to hear, the stories that tell us we can have it all without changing, and remember how to access to our indigenous minds.
