10.00am - 4.00pm
Fairy Tales Workshop
Presenter: Pam Blamey
Please note: There is a Spring special price reduction and limit on numbers for this event.
Whatever your age, stage or culture, there’s a fairy tale for you.
Once upon a Time …
Working or playing with fairy tales, as with dreams, is a living process, requiring unhurried time and space to expand.
It is much more fun and potentially more insightful and richer to explore and share a traditional fairy tale with like-minded people in a safe atmosphere.
Come and immerse yourself in a story that, although it comes from a different era, has resonances with your life and experience, a story that is less well known so that you come to it with fresh eyes and an open heart.
Come prepared to play and explore in the immediate experience of the collective unconscious.
This experiential workshop will include time to express feelings and insights using paint, oil pastels, journaling and play-acting parts of the story
“In mythic stories, we see that the characters do not resolve contradictions so much as they learn to tolerate them with grace and humor. In the Grimm fairy tale, the princess must keep the promise she made to the frog. Later, it is the act of refusing to keep her word that is crucial to the lesson.
Differing situations at various points call for different responses.........Learning from stories is an interactive process.” Jonathan Young
