who are we?
Remember the old saying "every picture tells a story?" See if you can guess who are the people in this photo. It is a husband and wife–he took credit for her work and was unfaithful. Later in life, he actually paid her the money he won for the Nobel Prize because of her contribution. Can you guess who this is?

Experience the Story
In the tradition of troubadours of old and enlivened by James D.Rosenberger, Audible Therapies draws on the power of stimulating the phonological loop to relieve tension and inspire participants. These proven techniques facilitate creativity, imagination, learning, insight and growth for individuals and groups.

Whereas many "storytellers" present passive readings from books or recite tall tales, Mr. Rosenberger's approach blends reminiscence and self-disclosure therapies along with live music performance, interactive techniques developed from his study of classical theatre and rituals of other cultures. For instance, the Greeks believed there was a significant relationship between health and the theatre. Hospitals and theatres were even built in close proximity to each other. Audible Therapies combines this power of music and stories along with the intentional use of drama and theatre techniques to enhance mental and emotional wellbeing.

We still today talk of the cathartic experience of live performance– when an audience member experiences a connection between their own life/feelings/ beliefs/ emotions and that which is being enlivened by the actor/presenter. These connections, or assistance as the French call it, can some times engender a profound and meaningful, even transformative experience.

Often the connections can be subtle and slowly lead to change, engendering further discussion, increased group involvement and personal contact. Other times engaging the right brain can result in a 'eureka' moment of dramatic realization. It is the concretizing of thoughts and images from the mind, provoked by visual images, a familiar song or combination of words and metaphors leading to the insight and release, thereby encouraging greater self-awareness.
