The Wisdom of Fairytales


Sydney Rudolf Steiner College is running this enchanting one day workshop with storyteller Ebba Bodame and eurythmist Adam Chan.

Bookings are extremely limited (12 max) so book in early.

Fairy tales contain wisdom and meaning for everyone, old and young. Through them, we can connect to the archetypal lessons of humanity.

We may have first encountered them as a child, but to reconnect with fairy tales as an adult allows us to tap into their nourishment, to see our path through life reflected in their mirror.

In this one-day workshop, celebrated storyteller Ebba Bodame will be our guide to finding and understanding the common threads which run through fairy tales.

Ebba says, “I was lucky to grow up with fairy tales in my daily diet. I have used them in my work as a teacher and as a mother. When parents enrich their child’s world through fairy tales, it is a gift for life.”

Participants will be treated to the pleasure of hearing Ebba tell several fairy tales throughout the day, and will work together on unlocking the mysteries they hold in small group discussions.

Ebba will share her tips on memorising and telling fairy tales, and creating an atmosphere that allows the listener to enter into the story. In the afternoon, artistic experiences — painting and eurythmy — will further deepen our understanding of the wisdom of fairy tales.

Eurythmy tutor Adam Chan says, “Through eurythmy we will explore the archetypal gestures that live within us and within all human beings. These have deep connections to our soul life. We will explore these archetypal gestures in an artistic way using the pictures given in traditional fairy tales as a vehicle, and connecting participants to greater self-knowledge and even self-acceptance.”

Join us in unlocking the mystery of fairy tales, and find a world full of treasures and sustenance for our own journey on earth.
