Getting things off the ground can require a great deal of aerodynamic planning but when that something happens to be a creature with wings then it is more a matter of hanging on for the ride. Jayátu has taken flight this week and has set a course to inspire and encourage the spreading of your own wings to soar into magic realms where the child and the child within can experience the knowledge of life's wonders.
Storytelling was the way we learned about ourselves and the world we live in prior to the written word. What gets conveyed and shared is more than just the story...it is the heart and soul of the storyteller. Jayátu is a human storyteller who is living what is now the myth of the storytellers in a world where the typed word has almost completely replaced spoken word.
Jayátu's mission is to help young folks of all ages awaken and grow the joy of life in themselves. Connecting to nature's wonders and power, celebrating the beauty of friendship, building the gift of community, growing courage to face life with love, finding and living one's true calling - all these are grown and nourished by powerful stories. Then, masterful storytelling gives flight to both stories and listeners.
