Minter Dialogue with Richard Stone
Richard Stone is CEO of StoryWork International and has dedicated his career to the power of storytelling. He is co-author with Scott Livengood of the new book, Story Intelligence : Master Story, Master Life. In this conversation, we discuss what it is about storytelling that is so forceful, able to change our minds and shift our energies. We look at how stories can be used to heal and to live a more satisfying life. We explore how society is suffering from de-storification and how we can build resilience through storytelling.
