Archetypal Patterns in Fairytales

frog prince

The title of this short course is borrowed from a book by Marie Louise Von Franz who was the acknowledged expert on the interpretation of fairy tales from a Jungian perspective. She wrote that,

“Fairy tales represent something very removed from human consciousness ... the difficulty (to understand them) is due to the fact that the fairytale is based on certain functions of the psyche with the skin and flesh removed. Only that remains which is of general human interest.”

These are thearchetypal patterns. We will look at a couple of fairytales and try to understand what they tell us about the play of the archetypes and individuation. Participants will be sent a link to the specific fairytale closer to the start of the course.

Recommended reading includes: "The Interpretation of Fairy Tales" by Marie-Louise von Franz
