Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth and Chinmaya International Foundation bring you a webinar-workshop on Exploring the Art of Storytelling.

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.
