The use of stories, anecdotes and metaphors greatly facilitates "brief solutions" as the therapeutic message is encapsulated in a highly condensed form in the teaching tales and humorous anecdotes typical of Sufi Approaches. In these tales, utilizing trance phenomena, the message is available for recall far beyond the time of the actual therapeutic encounter. This approach quickly, thoroughly and lastingly effects therapeutic change. In this workshop we will focus on Teaching Tales in combination with music. The approach is experiential: participants will actually experience a traditional Sufi Session of Story Telling, based on which the theory and technical aspects will be taught.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the induction of trance states based on story telling in combination with music.
  2. To describe the use of story telling as a form of indirection.
