Dr. Lois E. Wilkins has been involved in Depth Psychology for more than 40 years. Her passion for the study of Fairy Tales has spanned over three decades and has now taken her into a Fairy Tale project using Gary Hartman’s translations of the original Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales.
The archetypal nature of the images in dreams and Fairy Tales is foundational in the support of the individuation process. In order to understand the multidimensional meanings of dreams and Fairy Tales, we must explore the metaphorical language found within them. This exploration also leads us into the evolution of consciousness which C. G. Jung recognized and which is now considered essential in the individuation process. Throughout this program, we will discuss the importance of imagination, both for the individual and for cultures. We will cover the wide variety of alchemical processes (vibrational sciences) recognized through the use of imagination and explore how this knowledge helps us understand Fairy Tales and our own dreams. As a group, we will apply these concepts to aspects of a Fairy Tale and a dream.
