This unique book combines the power of metaphor and the dynamics of story telling. Tracing techniques of story telling back to their original roots, it promotes a deep understanding of the uses of metaphor. Each story takes the form of a guided journey that leads the listener along an imaginative path. Each forms a script for an inspiring story session that will enhance the learning of its listeners.

Packed with original stories and visualisations this is a must-buy resource for teachers, trainers and therapists who are looking for new approaches to group work, or are simply story-telling enthusiasts.
