February 20-22, 2015 – Fairy Tale Workshop in NSW




As a fairy tale researcher, I read A LOT of fairy tales. But I must admit, the Grimms’ “Das Mädchen ohne Hände” (The Maiden Without Hands) has always been a favourite of mine. There are over a hundred variants, often known as “The Handless Maiden,” “Silver Hands” or “The Armless Maiden.”

So when I was told that there was a fairy tale workshop this month in Sydney that centres around the tale, I was super excited!

This beautiful workshop is run by Heather Keens, an experienced individual and family therapist, and Joan Harcourt, an experienced body psychotherapist and group leader. Together they will help attendees explore this rich fairy tale from a Jungian psychological perspective

This workshop will be of interest to health professionals, counsellors, expressive therapists, storytellers, writers or anyone engaged in their own psychological journey.
