    in Relationships

    Welcome to Happiness Index.  This month began with laughter and stories and we are ending the month with laughter and stories.  we continue our focus on storytelling.  July is the essence of summer and it inspires, evokes and awakens our heart with stories that are telling.  Storytelling is an ancient art form. Storytelling paints events with words and images often by improvisation or embellishment.  Stories are rooted in every culture as a means of entertainment, igniting joy, knowledge, inspiration and education.  Stories are intercessors and they offer a way for us to connect with our ancestors, ancient cultures and moral values. We need intermediaries. Tune in and share your story. Call 347-539-5818 and share a story with us.

  • Bitch Craft: Time Skips and Nonlinear Storytelling

    in Entertainment

    Rivermoon 1970 asked on Tumblr: I find that in some of my stories I use time jumps, not a lot and often not more than a couple of years at the most. However I usually try to have a very short explanation and try to avoid info dumps. I've noticed quite a few fics that have huge time jumps 10+ years often with no explanation. Happens a lot in the HP, Supernatural and Buffy fandoms. What are your thoughts on time jumps and how to use them well?

    Side note: I'm going to start calling my short writing topic shows - Bitch Craft.

  • Six Big Predictions for the Future of Business Storytelling

    in Marketing

    After a 4-month hiatus, I am back!  Today, we will be talking about where business storytelling, enjoying a renaissance of sorts, is headed.

    A resurgence is a great thing and storytelling itself - the oldest and original social medium for humans - is evolving in the business world. 

    In doing my work, chatting with fellow story practitioners and in doing research for a book, here is what I believe the next wave of storytelling will look like, and much of it involves getting out of the way and empowering others. In short, business storytelling is about influence, not control.

    We'll chat about six ways storytelling is changing on today's show.

    in Spirituality

    Join KM this week as she talks with Gwendolyn Napier of the Kuumba Storytellers of Georgia.  They will be discussing the importance of the oral tradition of storytelling.

    The ANU spiritual Order is a way of learning that allows the student to place themselves at the center of the learning experiences as opposed to memorizing rituals, names, and protocol that serve little when it comes down to reality reconstruction.

    This class series is a hardcore spiritual initiation into the deeper truths of indigenous metaphysics and natural power.
