Featured on the Storytelling School Podcast with Kymberlee Weil
“Observe with interest” is one of the nuggets of wisdom I say repeatedly thanks to my guest joining us today, Dr. Keith Witt. He teaches us that we can observe stories through an outside perspective, and when we do it with interest there are gifts just waiting for us. Dr. Witt is a licensed psychologist, teacher, author, and story practitioner who lives and breathes in story every day of his life.
He and I discuss the liberating and self-limiting stories in all our lives and the importance of feeling enchanted with whatever narrative we tell about ourselves and the world around us. You’ll hear about why transitioning from a negative to a positive story is a more complicated choice than it seems. We dig deep into the stories in our dreams and explore how dreams influence the narratives we share when we are awake plus we discuss techniques to interact with our dreams. Dr. Keith and I unpack why people can often feel resistance to telling, accepting, or sharing new stories. Get ready as Dr. Witt and I go deep in this mind blowing episode!
