NCGPS Open Studio Oct 21, 2017 – Pathways to Transformation: Bringing the Magic of Fairy Tales into Groups
Fairy tales patterns are vitally important for understanding group dynamics. The hero or heroine leaves home on a journey, or quest. Usually child abuse initiates the action. Protagonists enter disturbing realms, encounter fabulous forces, master challenges to ultimately win a victory. Typically, they return with a gift to society. The core action is leaving one group to become better nurtured by another. New creative and psychological development results from the systemic shifts. Through active imagination, enactments of stories and symbolic exploration, will examine and apply the dynamics and change processes from interchangeable fairy tales, nature and dreams for expanding personal and group journeys. By unveiling unconscious gifts, we will unleash creativity to enliven and revitalize our group and personal stories.
