THE WISDOM OF FAIRY TALES
WISDOM OF FAIRY TALES WORKSHOP

GLIMPSING THE GRIMMS – an exploration of the relevance of the Germanic fairy tale tradition to the lives we live today.
For over two centuries the Brothers Grimm’s role in adapting fairy tales from the oral to the literary tradition has had an immense impact on the imaginations of children and adults alike. But who were these enigmatic brothers and how can we find meaning and relevance in their storytelling as we confront the ambiguities and uncertainties of the present?
Chris Brooks is a storyteller, poet and comedic performer who has a passion for both the oral and literary fairy tale traditions. He has devised a series of workshops and courses aimed at sharing his love of these traditional narratives in ways which are relevant and useful to the art of living well.
Pre-booking is essential to guarantee your place.

This course is designed to journey through a landscape shaped by fairy tales and folk lore whilst exploring 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 and transitions, connecting with the magical, family dynamics and conquering fears.
