The Jester and the Sage: Forming Connections Through Storytelling

Everyone loves a good story. Since the advent of communication, humans have compulsively weaved stories as a method to pass on wisdom, share laughter, inspire, and bring people together. In this time of social distancing, many of us are unfortunately experiencing social isolation. This group was conceived to help combat those feelings of isolation through one of the most original means of connection: storytelling.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to.:

  • Apply elements of storytelling to encourage human connection 
  • Connect and engage with coworkers and colleagues across the university. 

Who Should Attend

This group is intended for any CU Boulder faculty or staff member who wants to bolster connections through the storytelling medium. 


There is no cost for this course.


Stanley Ly, MA, LPC is a Licensed Staff Counselor with the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program in the Department of Human Resources at CU Boulder.
