This will be an experiential workshop, where we will further explore the role of The Witch – Teacher in our own lives. We will also examine some major themes in these ancient teaching tales, such as the role of the psychopomp – the flying horse, which can be seen as our internalised teacher, who can take us to those inner realms and guide us on the way. There is the dilemma of the frog-skin in the Frog princess. Should Princess Vassilisa’s husband the Prince have burned her frog-skin? Would she ever have burned it herself? The frog-skin is that interface between the inner and the outer realms. In Cenerentola we discover in a sense how the ‘frog-skin’ came into being – it could well be the back story of the Frog Princess – what has really been burned to create the ash and cinders that she sits among?
We will also work with the effect of sound which accompanies the transition from one realm to the other in our stories. We will resonate the vibration of the Hu in different places – our heart, head, above the head where the I and Thou intersect.
Participants are encouraged to bring with them recent dreams which may reflect themes from the fairy tales.
