And living beings remain in cyclic existence,
For that long, may I too remain,
To dispel the sufferings of the world.

This next one is a 45 minute lecture on Storytelling Theory and Practice. I really got a lot out of it, the Professor has similar thoughts to myself. He tells 3 great stories throughout.

Some excellent material here! The only thing I would add is that stories must be told OUT LOUD! Al magciains chould practice reading or telling stories out loud as a way of developing both character and presentation skills.
"there is real merit in the magician who tries to be creative – from such endeavors magic sustains its life energy." Harold Rice

Very nice resources. I'm thinking about doing a draw and tell story using an interactive Smartboard.

I love storytelling magic. However, it's like some mentalism. The stories must not be so long that the magic effect is lost. I have a sack of river stones with animals and characters carved on them.I found a mystical looking bag and put them in it. Then, I collected stories to fit the stones I have. Not all are magical, but I'm working on it.

Thanks so much for all the resources. The first time I show a magic show presented in storytelling form, I loved it and now I've got some resources to start learning how to incorporate it.

Thanks for posting this. Lots of useful ideas in there. Plus I'd never heard that stonecutter story before - very nice.

I’m no being humble here, sorry, but my book has been a magic best seller for a few years and continues to sell. It covers all I know from 30 plus years in storytelling magic.
