Roots of Story

A four week Social Age Journey by Julian Stodd

Our world is made up of stories: in this programme we consider how those stories work, and our role, as Storytelling Leaders.

Exploring our landscape of stories, and how we lead and learn within it

Participants will gain a deep understanding of how stories work, their strengths, limitations, the ways that they hold power, and how we can use them for change.

Across 4 weeks, 60 minutes per week plus a 15 minute activity, will consider:

Week 1 – The Roots of Story
How we are simply collections of stories, and how we use stories to learn, to change, to control, and to connect.
Week 2 – Stories of You
Your identity story, and how many stories you have
Week 3 – Sheltering in Stories
How stories can hold us safe, or trap us
Week 4 – Storytelling through Change
How the Storytelling Leader will use stories to change, the role of Dominant Narratives, and how stories hold power
