He has over thirty years experience as a pastor/storyteller and has visited many countries, collecting and sharing stories as he goes.
POETRY (HAIKU) Philip D. Noble has been writing Haiku poems for more than 15 years and his poems have been published in various magazines. He has regularly contributed to the Haiku in English column of Mainichi the Japanese English newspaper.
He has found that such deceptively simple nature poems help most people to look and think about things in a more calm and objective way. Everyday objects and ideas can be used to express significant or profound events. Haiku poetry has been likened to taking a picture without a camera.
CROSS CULTURAL COMMUNICATION. A decisive moment came for Philip when he saw an old man making a string game in Papua New Guinea. He realised the significance of being able to graciously receive in order to give. He discovered that string games are more than just a story telling medium; they are a living symbol of the beauty and power of effective communication.
In 1978 Philip co-founded the International String Figures Association to encourage and share all aspects of string figures including their role in cross cultural communication. This has led on to an exploration of the role of 'serious play' as a communication medium beyond the constraints of language.
