As a Storyteller who facilitates workshops I resonate very much with this post. The difference between how you describe education and training came clear to me in Belize where I coordinated a volunteer literacy program. As I became more and more open to a dual learning, ie. students as teachers, teachers as students, I noticed a much deeper impact of the program over time. It is understandable why; locals felt heard, valued and understood and thus their participation became greater. We ALL learned and it was wonderful and mind expanding.
The dream of connecting and understanding one another drives me to continue in pursuing competency.
Here's to learning from each other.
