10:30 a.m. — Oceanna Hall – Storytelling is as old as humankind. Before we could write, we told stories to try and make sense of what is happening in our lives. As we evolved, generation after generation, our stories became more complicated. Our thinking expanded; we developed more language. We began to interweave our stories into our conversations. This gift of story causes everyone to have their own “life story” imprinted into their brain.is the bridge between mind and spirit. All of our stories have deeper meaning. Meaning is everything to the brain. Meaning feeds the spirit. A key reason why we tell stories is to make sense of our lives, our worlds to gain wisdom of a spiritual quality. Making sense of life experiences, allows us to let go of the feelings associated with the memory and file the experience as wisdom. Oceanna Hall explores this gift of Story — making meaning of our life’s experiences.
