Lignin Stories is a storytelling platform for people of all ages, nations, and beliefs. It is a space for paying it forward, sharing personal experiences, knowledge, and resources in order to foster connection, inspiration and soulful change, unbinding the unrealised potential in every person and every moment.

When people come together in a circle, each equal and valued, they are able to connect and inspire one another. In traditional societies this circle, often formed around a fire, symbolised cultural heritage and belonging. It allowed the young to draw upon the wisdom of the old and the old to lean upon the strength of the young. Each person, harnessing the energy of the circle, is able to grow and like the oak tree, draws sustenance from the Earth to stretch up to the sky, overcoming personal limitations and fears.

Lignin Stories, drawing on material from all over the world, is a platform that brings together new and experienced storytellers to facilitate work in the fields of personal development, education, business development, the arts and culture sector, science and community building. Courses, workshops and training are offered to the general public alongside bespoke opportunities created for specific purposes.

If you are a storyteller with a practice to share, if you are a teacher with little minds and hearts to inspire, if you are responsible for any community group or institution or if you manage a large corporation with separate departments that need to work more efficiently together, get in touch with us.

Lignin Stories is about sharing, building, and inspiring positive change. We look forward to working with you.

I believe in the power of storytelling. Stories open our hearts to a new place, which opens our minds, which often leads to action.
