Learn to tell the right story really well

We are built to tell and listen to stories. Stories hold our attention, influence our perception and change our behavior.
Restorative Storytelling is essential for all teachers, leaders and change makers who want to find their voice, create transformative content, and build community.


David Sewell McCann, the storyteller behind the over 1500 stories of Sparkle Stories developed this practice for people who want to bring transformation and healing through stories.



Storytelling Strategies

Twelve Storytelling strategies that help you find your unique storytelling profile. Get introduced to them all and then narrow down to a handful that will become your person tool belt of storytelling!

24 Easy to Learn Tools

Each tool builds on the previous, all working on the storyteller, the story itself, and then best practices for reading the room and serving the listener. The final tool helps you organize all these. new skills into a practice perfect for you!

Regular Mini-courses

Every month there are new tools, strategies and applications of the Restorative Storytelling skills. A faculty of teachers adapt and evolve the skills to be more appropriate and useful for professionals in education, leadership and business.

We are keeping the cohorts small, so there are only a few spots available.

The Platform and Process have been researched and proven


After years of tinkering and trying out different approaches, this program was the subject of a full doctoral program evaluation. The results were encouraging and clear:

  1. Adults enjoy learning in cohorts.
  2. It is best if the content is available asynchronously.
  3. A robust forum is necessary for building relationships of practice and accountability.
  4. All of this must be easy to access and schedule.

Monthly or Annual Program

There are advantages to both.

With monthly, you can hop on and try it out for a few months. With annual you can get the full training and opportunity to practice for a much lower cost.
