"The Universe is made of stories, not of atoms." — Muriel Rukeyser
Humans are storytelling creatures. We make meaning understand and (re)shape the world(s) we inhabit through stories. Unfortunately, many of us are unaware of the power of our personal stories to change the way people around us see the world.
In this interactive talk, Lawrence will introduce a storytelling framework that is inspired by generations of storytellers from around the world. And then you'll have a chance to start thinking about your life in the framework. If you're looking to make the world around you a better place, this talk is for you!
"Wherever you are, start there." — the Universe
