These dream-like short films can offer laughter, solace, and insights into perennial wisdom. They can be useful for group discussions.
Use Laura's book (below) to explore these films in an established book or film club.
Join us for a monthly group online to explore Laura's films through a Jungian lens.
Bring Laura to your group to lead a discussion on the wisdom and psychological themes in the films.
Fairy tales are the simplest and purest expressions of the collective unconscious and thus offer the clearest understanding of the basic patterns of the human psyche.
- Jungian analyst Marie Louise Von Franz
Fairy tale characters & their constellations are divested of all personal trappings, thus in them unconscious processes can be seen in their typical forms. The psychology of the unconscious can learn a great deal from fairy tales since they describe essential human archetypal phenomena. Carl Jung went so far as to define fairy tales is the anatomy of the psyche.
- Psychotherapist Mario Jacoby
