Seminar: Fairy Tales and Sandplay  –  August 3-5, 2018

C G Jung stated that ‘in myths and fairytales, as in dreams, the psyche tells its own story.’
Fairy tales continue to enchant, fascinate and horrify us. They are a valuable resource for adults and children facing the complexities of life and overcoming blocks to psychological development.  They offer insights about the emotional experiences of abandonment, envy, hatred, betrayal, rivalry and fear.  In this 3 day workshop Jungian analyst Sarah Gibson takes us on journey into some psychological interpretations of the traditional fairy tales that depict the dark feminine, evil stepmother or witch in her wildly varied human and animal guises.

Sarah will explore throughout the weekend how fairy tale symbols may appear in the sand trays of adults. There will be opportunity for participants to investigate their personal connection to traditional fairy tale narratives and to become familiar with the fairy tale characters in their own sand play collections.
