Building relationships and trust through storytelling.

What is Story Jewel?


Humans tell stories. What if we could practice and delight in the stories of others? Jewel is a circle of listeners and tellers hosted by young people creating a culture of wondering, open listening and respect.

A circle of listening

A practice of telling

Human: a story at a time

The stories are simple. They come from lived lives. Everyone has stories.


Small circles of listners create a culture of

  • wondering
  • open listening
  • respect

The fundamental ingredients to Jewel are the same as those that make peace, breakdown dividing walls, resolve conflict and construct the necessary understanding for reconciliation. So it is a simple practice changing the world, one story at a time.
