An Exploration of Folktales from a Gestalt and Jungian Perspective
A presentation by Pam Blamey

The Jungian analyst June Singer, in her foreword to one of A.B. Chenen’s books on fairytales, says that as we grow up we can lose some of that freedom, spontaneity, love and caring that is so essential to our nature. And that paying attention to the symbolic and mythic truths in fairytales can be transforming as we learn to “stand for being true to our essence, to love fully without reservation and overcome the demons that would overpower us”.
Tonight’s presentation offers an intriguing exploration of how we can relate the deeper meaning of the ancient stories to the present moment of our lives today.
Pam Blamey has been in the counselling field for nearly twenty years. She has recently re-ignited her passion for symbol and metaphor in her research of the therapeutic use of folktale and myth. She is currently developing workshops on this wide and nourishing topic.
