combines the intensity of a solo performance with the intimacy of a face-to-face conversation.
"Storytelling at its best is mutual creation. Through the interaction between teller and listener, storytelling speaks to the inner child to nurture the human spirit." -
Ellin Greene, author of Storytelling: Art & Technique.
For over 20 years, Kent Busman has been telling stories to people of all ages. While working in Alaska, he learned his first tale, "The Cremation of Sam Magee," and practiced telling it as he hitchhiked from Anchorage back to Michigan.
Since then, Busman has been able to integrate stories into his vocation. As Director of Camp Fowler and Conference Center, a youth camp in Speculator, NY, he has used stories in the entire camp experience. "Telling stories of caring for the world, stories of wonder and joy, and stories of faith and hope, help to remind the listeners of not only how special the world is, but how special they are, too." Busman is also an ordained minister in the Reformed Church of America.
