We were all beads in her story necklace

I learned about this in a session on Saturday.

As Laura Simm described the story of the rose in her garden and what it means to her - I was overpowered by the emotions I felt. For one, I could feel the powerful bond she had with her grandmother; at the same time feeling a sense of loss that I had nothing similar to hold on to. It was a very visceral reaction - happiness and sadness at the same time. 

As we continued on the storytelling and relating journey - I was amazed at the power that stories hold, which I had never considered previously. Atleast not consciously. 
Some of the takeaways for me -

  • Stories can disrupt the established identity roles, habitual roles 
  • Stories can consolidate our cohesiveness as community
  • Use stories to build rapport not reports
  • Stories are emotions not data
  • Story telling and sharing is SALT in action
  • Stories can be extractive so there is need to be cautious

At the end of the session, it felt like  Laura have weaved a thread that connected me to you all as if we were all beads on her story necklace - it was very beautiful.
