WORKSHOP: Biography Through Story

  • How do we tell our story?
  • What is archetypal in our story and what is personal – and do the two areas intersect?
  • Can my story so far shed light onto where I am and where I am going?

This is a three-morning workshop (over three Saturday mornings) using fairy tales, fables and folklore to enable participants to create autobiographical stories using an insight into archetypes.

The Jungian Archetypes alongside Rudolf Steiner’s Planetary Soul-types will be explored together with the richness and diversity of classical European fairy tales, folktales from around the world, and fables form ancient and modern times.

The workshop is designed to afford time to write and share stories that speak through archetypes, discovering a true picture of where I am and a sense of the path ahead, without any uncomfortable exposure.
