Fairy tales represent psychological dynamics and patterns. They show in symbolic and metaphorical ways the life challenges and solutions we face. Carl Jung called these patterns archetypes.

From fairy Tales we learn how to psychologically engage these universal problems and challenges, such as starting the journey, being lost, betrayal & abandonment and finding our way home again.

We invited 5 different experienced teachers to talk about one fairy tale each. In this course you will learn several specific fairy tales with their unique underlying symbolic forms. Each teacher will offer suggestions on how to work with fairy tales in general. This is an invaluable skill to work with the unconscious, and is also applicable to mythology, dreams, and a symbolic reading of daily life.

Upon enrollment you will immediately get access to the 20 minute bonus class from Dariane Pictet on ‘How to work with Fairy Tales’.

Join us for a transformative journey into the enchanting world of fairy tales with our soulful storytellers. Each class is guided by a seasoned therapist and teacher deeply attuned to the symbolic and dynamic nature of the soul. Through the exploration of these timeless narratives, participants will discover profound insights into their own life challenges and opportunities, learningto view your life through a symbolic lens.

We’ll travel through kingdoms in disarray, answering the call to start our transformative journey, and explore how complexes keep us in their grip. Through these timeless stories, we encounter power dynamics, trust and abandonment, and negative, critical, and utterly destructive forces. We will also learn to identify the supportive forces within the soul that allow for positive transformation.

Delving into the unfolding and transformation of the psyche, akin to the rhythms of nature itself, this course equips participants with essential skills to navigate the complexities of the human psyche in dream work, psychotherapy, and everyday life.

Join us on this transformative odyssey into the wild landscapes of fairy tales and the depths of our own souls, where every lesson unlocks a new realm of initiation, personal development and individuation.
