Remember those nights when you were ready for bed, warm in your pajamas or nightgowns, huddled together with your brother or sister or mother or father or some combination of them? Remember the wicked witch cackling out of the gingerbread house, deep in the middle of the woods? Remember the call, “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your long hair,” or the squishy-wet frog that wanted to share the king’s daughter’s pillow with her?

This workshop will help remind us of the pure and simple delight in stories, stories that our parents’ parents told them. There will be “Cinderella” and “Snowwhite”, “Hansel and Gretel” and “The Frog King”, “Sleeping Beauty” and “The Three Golden Hairs of the Devil.” The workshop will also show you ways of working with fairy tales, drawing out the patterns and solutions for our everyday problems and living. (There has to be something for the adult in us, right?) If you need a further reason to come, you will take home some wonderful stories to tell to your children or your grandchildren—or read yourselves!—as part of the bedtime rituals!

Gary Hartman is a Jungian analyst and graduate of the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich, and is in private practice in Kansas City, St. Louis, and Fayetteville, Arkansas.
