Small group explorations

Elder Tales  – In the Ever After: Fairy Tales for the Second Half of Life A small group study of fairy tales from around the world will be facilitated by counselor and Jung Society board member, Terry Glendinning, M.Ed. of Fairbanks, Alaska.

In fairy tales we are most familiar with, the protagonist is often someone who goes on a journey in search of riches or love. The protagonist in elder tales is one who possesses wisdom. Elders understand that in later life their task includes embracing self-confrontation and self-transcendence thus ushering in a larger life. Elder fairy tales from around the world reveal the psychology of emotional maturity.

During three 90-minute sessions this group will discuss selected fairy tales from a variety of cultures that illuminate the challenges and possibilities for personal growth encountered in the second half of life. This group is open to people of all ages.

Cost: $25 general (includes book), $15 for 2019-20 Jung society members (includes book); registration fees are due at the first meeting

Please contact Terry at 328-9664 for specific information regarding the time, date, and location.
