Connecting with Folk Tales and Fables
Great adventures begin with, “Once upon a time,” everyone knows that much. But some of the greatest adventures begin with the words “Did I ever tell you about that time . .” Listening to stories and telling our own fosters connection, thought, and real life application of timeless truths. Mo Reynolds is a professional storyteller that weaves folk tales with personal narratives, drawing connections along the way and inviting listeners to be a part of the story. Every performance is a unique experience. The performance can include a workshop element, helping members of the community tap into their own stories and build connections with others through stories. Sharing and listening to stories fosters connection, empathy, and unity. Connecting them to folk tales and fables anchor them in a way that is both unique and universal.
