Event description

Description

A six-hour course with Jonathan Young and Anne Bach (In-Person Workshop and Live Webinar)

** PLEASE NOTE: REGISTRATION CLOSES FEBRUARY 6th at 5:00pm PST **

This is a day on the symbolic study of folklore and mythology. Through storytelling and lively discussion of the Wizard of Oz, we will explore how favorite stories reflect adult psychological dynamics and offer guidance for those dealing with life-stage transitions.

The presentations review the familiar journey down the yellow brick road for significant metaphors and personal insights. This course shows how to explore a classic tale for greater understanding of the inner life. We focus on how mythic stories reflect emotional dynamics.

Mythic patterns in stories reflect a broad range of human concerns. This is a course on drawing insights from wisdom tales. The training deepens awareness of the significant role stories play in personal development and identity formation.

The course is open to all those interested in archetypal perspectives. The discussions require no background in mythology, literature, film studies or Jungian psychology.

Learning Objectives

Identifying psychological issues reflected in timeless stories
