Storytelling is a way to share and learn ideas, values and practices.
Storytellers remember something of their life or of the life of others; the listeners can relate to the story and retell it, maybe adding a little of their own experience. Thus stories bring people together. Stories offer a connection between a past that is told, the present and the future, and help to connect people around feelings, information and shared experiences.
