The Princess and the Frog King –
A Tale of the Inner Life
with psychologist, professor, writer Jonathan Young, PhD
From the realms of mystery and magic, dream and fantasy, comes the enchanting tale of a girl who loved playing with her golden ball. We will discuss the symbolism of desire in one of Joseph Campbell's favorite stories,
The Princess and the Frog King.
In a spirit of play, we will follow this perplexing story from the Brothers Grimm to learn more about the transformative possibilities of shadow. There are times when events in our lives take surprising turns, sometimes bringing distressing anxieties. At such moments, mythic tales can offer guidance. They show us the significance of dimensions beyond ordinary experience. In this evening of storytelling and discussion, we will explore the wisdom of the soul.
