The Wisdom of Fairy Tales Online Course
Although few of us have regular cause to kiss a frog, fend off a ravenous wolf or rescue our offspring from the ovens of cannibalistic witches, life can often seem frustrating, difficult and laden with dangers. This course, designed and delivered by storyteller and educator Chris Brooks, journeys through a landscape shaped by fairy tales and folklore as it explores how the timeless wisdom of these stories can enhance the art of being, living and flourishing in the modern world.
Themes explored through the many messages and motifs contained within fairy tales include handling change, connecting with the magical and confronting fears.
