The fairy tale holds deep wisdom, for mothers have told these stories to children over thousands of years, relaying only the most beneficial, memorable, and true to their own children. While they can seem outlandish and purely fictional, these stories speak in the universal language of archetypes and the symbolic language of scripture to weave a unified, true image of the cosmos—whether mystical and magical or logical and familiar.
In this ninety-minute webinar, Katerina Kern will explore the symbols and universal truths within Andersen’s popular tale, The Little Mermaid. Part lecture (but only a little) and part classroom experience, Katerina will lead this webinar as she would her own classroom.
While catered to adults, children as young as twelve can benefit from attending. To prepare for this webinar please read Hans Christian Andersen’s version of The Little Mermaid from Tales of Wonder (Volume I): 8 Essentials Fairy Tales and Discussion Questions.
