While people might forget dry, boring information they will usually remember stories. Most of us were raised on stories and when we allow ourselves to get past our grown-up-ness, we can all remember how much we (still) love, connect and identify with a good tale. They are both liberating and empowering. They are a most effective way to teach, learn and create a deeper level of understanding and connection.

We remember and connect with stories because they affect us on a level much deeper than the purely cerebral. They bring a level of understanding and revelation that information (of itself) doesn’t. Statistics, facts, data and theories are easily forgettable but stories (which are simply information with pictures and feelings) touch us mentally, emotionally and, even, physiologically. Stories make us laugh and cry. Happy and sad. They affect our nervous system. Excite us. Scare us. They can increase our heart rate. Or lower it. They can trigger chemical changes in our body (cortisol, adrenaline, endorphins). They can make us breathe faster or slower. And they can open the door to a level of understanding that only comes through a ‘three-dimensional’ (physical, emotional and psychological) learning experience.
