Studying fairytales has always been important in coming to understand Jungian psychology. Story images will be discussed as metaphors giving important insights into understanding the complexity of the human psyche. Does the maiden make a Faustian deal with the little creature who promises to save her from an impossible situation? What aspects of ourselves are personified by the father, the maiden, the king and the imp? What does spinning straw into gold symbolize? Additional fairytales will be discussed as time allows.
