Having reached a stage where one can proclaim “I wasn’t born yesterday” presents an opportunity and challenge to explore the multiple dimensions of our unfolding legacies. Believing as Jonas Salk wrote, that one of our highest callings is “to become good ancestors” Liz and Bob will provide a framework and suggest some questions that we as storytellers can use for ourselves or as tools to help others explore the deep waters of our legacy stories. They look forward to facilitating a lively conversation that will include the legacy of story and storytelling and storytellers that we have learned from and been inspired by.
Our Speakers: Bob Kanegis and Liz Mangual are storytellers and educators who for many years have been telling, teaching, and convening community storytelling events. In recent years much of their work has been focused on oral language development residencies in rural New Mexico schools, family storytelling workshops and their annual nation-wide library tours. Their initiatives such as F.E.A.S.T (Families Eating and Storytelling Together,) The Endangered Stories Act and, We Have Stories To Tell reflect their keen interest in helping other’s find, craft and tell their own stories. In the past few years this thread in their own storytellers arc has widened with their offerings of day long Legacy Exploration retreats, Bob’s work as a story coach, and Liz’s life coaching practice. Bob is currently serving as the President of the Board for STNM- Storytellers of New Mexico.
Drawing out stories, helping people see patterns, make connections, find meaning, and then get excited about sharing their insights and aha! Moments.
That keeps Bob and Liz engaged and passionate about the power of stories to create and sustain community.

The Healing Story Alliance explores and promotes the use of storytelling in healing. The goal for this special interest group is to share our our experience and our skills, to increase our knowledge of stories and our knowledge of the best ways to use stories to inform, inspire, nurture and heal. We also wish to reach beyond our storytelling community to share with those in other service professions; therapists, clergy, health care practitioners of all kinds, anyone who can see the benefit of story as a tool for healing. The HSA website offers suggestions, guidance and practical applications of storytelling. It is a kaleidoscope revealing and reflecting the many facets of healing story in the world today and in the past. We invite you to make use of, and share your experience as we continually grow this changing field.At this moment, many people are drawn to this site as they search for answers or resources on how to deal with the pain and tragedy of events such as the shootings of children in Connecticut, the uprooting of families and communities through natural disasters and human initiated aggression (from bullying to war).
