Science has recently shown that storytelling is the most effective method of stimulating our brains.And yet we rarely think to turn to a story or metaphor to communicate, educate or inspire.
Here at Storyseeds, we develop very new and very old methods to help people find their inner storyteller. People learn to make their stories more meaningful, memorable and connect deeper to their audience.
Scientific discoveries can be difficult for people to understand. Organizations often have trouble conveying ideas.
Wrapping your ideas in the right narrative is like giving people a bowl for their soup, rather than pouring soup into their hands.
Now, not only are your ideas more digestable, but people will remember them much longer and much better. And because of these factors, people are much more likely to share these ideas with others through your new found narrative.
Stories continue to amaze us in their ability to grow, change. Once they existed for thousands of years largely told around campfires. Now, however, they have become film, novels, video games, theatre and not to mention tomorrow's new methods of storytelling which are out there waiting for us to discover them.
One thing remains true, many of the tricks of telling meaningful and moving stories have not changed.
So if you're looking for ways to tap into the deeper, more ancient power of story to help tell your modern stories, you've come to the right place.
Sometimes in life we find ourselves realizing that where we thought we were going to be has changed drastically. The story we have been telling ourselves about our life is crushed, or needs sense made out of it.
It is in these moments that we can turn to story to not feel so alone, to find lessons we might not have seen before, for all walks of people have lived through struggles similar to us today. And they encoded these lessons in stories.
So, with a careful eye, you can learn to live through the story in your life, rather than letting the story live through you.
