Fairytales paint a vivid picture of the path towards spiritual adulthood. (individuation) Studying them can help us open to the wisdom of our unconscious psyche. In this group we explore fairytales with help from Jungian teachers like Marion Woodman, Robert Johnson, and using our own intuition and insight.

Each time we meet we'll read a fairytale out loud together and explore its meaning as we would a dream, by exploring the images in the story. The group meets twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Friday from 6:30pm-9pm. Fee: $25 per group (Tea and cookies included:)
