Well-told stories warm and nourish us. World tales connect us to diverse cultures; remind us we have much in common. In the shared storytelling experiences we are encouraged to see beyond ourselves; beyond basic needs, to places of empathy, reflection and well being. Eileen’s engaging programs elicit innate responses for us to see ourselves as one of many who can, like the characters in stories, find joy in the struggles, believe in oneself and others, and persevere.
