The Balance of Story

Great thinking is dis-integrating.

We have become expert at compartmentalized thinking;

with the intellect for one task, from the heart and intuition for another.

Work, life, and family

are segregated and our thinking in these domains is often seperated. We have stopped

thinking holistically with all of our being.

In many indigenous cultures such as Maori, thinking was integrated. Learning a song or a

game was part of learning survival skills. Oratory and rhetoric integrated strategic thinking,

heartfelt emotion and integrated one╩╝s self with people and planet.

Story telling was an art and a science. To re-integrate our thinking embracing story to

communicate powerfully will be the way of the future.
