    Great Wisdom Tales

    As a meditator and someone who is spiritual but not religious, I'm interested in the wisdom of sacred stories and there are dozens of good ones in this book from cultures North, South, East and West. I read them mainly for my own enjoyment, but I can see how they'd be great shared in classrooms and in counseling. The author explains how the dynamics between characters in a story can mirror inner dynamics within an individual, such as having an inner misfit with big dreams and an inner big brother who is strong and practical. I found this interesting.

    Instead of reading from front to back I flipped through the Theme Index and picked stories on a variety of themes like Devotion, Domestic Violence, Dispute Resolution, Envy and Jealousy, Fairness, Forgiveness, Inner Beauty, Love Triangles, Revenge, Scamming, Self Reliance, Sibling Rivalry, Truthfulness and Walking One's Talk. There's really a story for every age and life theme out there and if you want to learn to tell stories by heart the introduction offers a technique for doing so. After each tale the author gives examples of how the stories can be used. Teachers use them to bring multiculturalism to the classroom, scout leaders use them to teach fairness, people in AA use them for solace and serenity and so on. The book also includes a great CD of some of the choicest stories which have gone over well with everyone in my family, young and old.
