The Art of Storytelling

Exploring the Art of Storytelling

Chinmaya International Foundation presents a webinar on Exploring the Art of Storytelling, facilitated by Dr. Arundhati Sundar. The webinar in English will commence from 25th September, 2021. This interactive webinar aims at developing the storytelling skills of the participants and help them in becoming master storytellers.

Storytelling is an ancient art form, an entertainment at social gatherings, a bonding through shared memories in family circles, a celebration in festivals, an imaginative communication of wonders of the world, passing on the accumulated knowledge and wisdom of a culture from generation to generation. It is an essential skill for parents, teachers and Balavihar Sevika/Sevaks. Like any art-form, it can be developed and mastered. Through planned exercises, the aim is to equip the participants with the essential skills to become effective storytellers.

  • Focus on Skill development
  • Active, participative style
  • Be a part of the ancient parampara of storytellers
  • Connect to culture, reconnect to the inner child

Dr. Arundhati Sundar is passionate about connecting to culture through storytelling. She has conducted storytelling workshops for Balavihar Sevikas and Sevaks in several CM Centers in the US and Singapore and lately as an Adjunct Professor of Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth, an online Storytelling Course for the university students.
