Meet Laconia Therrio, he/him
Laconia Therrio loves stories, particular those from around the world. Stories remind the listener of what they have in common with others, especially those different from the listener. The words or phrases create images in the mind and spirit of the listener, so much so that what truly matters is the story. And when the story is over, the person has been transported to another realm.
Stories matter. They touch the heart, mind and spirit of the listener. All the teller does is share the story, but the relationship between the teller and the listener is sacred.
A native New Orleanian, Laconia is a professional storyteller and also serves as a hospital chaplain. He believes in Story’s capacity to do the following:
- Stories Build
- Stories Bridge
- Stories Connect
