Dear Sharon, I see that your program is at full capacity and a waitlist is open. I have taken your online course on fairytales and am a paid subscriber. I wanted to join your Pacifica course to deep dive into Narrative Therapy as a tool when working with fairytales.

I am a rest coach/facilitator and I love weaving fairy tales into the practice. In addition to this, I love using creative writing prompts (hence where I wanted to go deeper into Narrative Therapy techniques) to invite my participants to play and engage with the symbols and images present for them. Your work/article on the imaginarium has been SO helpful and I am looking to go deeper into these elements with some support/guidance/mentorship.

I do not have any training/qualification in depth psychology/Jungian studies. I am very drawn to stay connected to the creative practice, play and trust what comes up as opposed to exploring deeply anima/animas and detailed analysis from a Jungian lense when it come to fairytales.

As you can imagine, its a challenge to find the right support/resource /courses to help fill the gap I'm needing guidance on.

I would be ever so grateful for your guidance/advice for me on how I can learn and build my practice.

Thanks as always!

This course looks incredible! I’d love to join but would have to miss 2 of the live Zoom sessions, one of which unfortunately is the very first one. Would that still work? (I don’t need CEC credits, just a bit worried about missing too much content). Also, I’m wondering whether there’s an online platform to exchange thoughts, ask questions etc in between the live sessions?

I’m really looking forward to possibly partaking in this. I’ve just recently been captured by the story about Mis from If Woman Rose Rooted. Would love tools to dive into this deep resonance and the strong emotions that rose out from just the reading!

"Finding Ourselves in Fairy Tales" Oh my, this ecourse looks to be an absolutely marvellous experience.

I'm glad to vouch for the deep value of doing this kind of study and personal exploration out of interest. Decades ago, at a turning point in a tumultuous time, the discovery of my own core fairytale figure/story set me free to grow into midlife in unsuspected, healthier ways. 'Gerda' of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen" dwelt within me, holding wondrous and baffling influence. She remains a resonant part of me, as a (still sometimes tricky!) ally here in my near-eighties. If time, energy, and other realities were otherwise ... well, I'd dive in too. The outline for "Finding Ourselves in Fairy Tales" is very nearly irresistible, even so. For sure, this wisely-paced ecourse will profoundly nourish its participants.

I've just registered for the course and feel like the universe (and Sharon!) have given me a perfectly timed gift. As my work with my own Jungian therapist deepens, I've been changing the way I work with my clients (I'm an LPC). Introducing archetypes, fairy tales, and personal narrative into the work we do has added so much joy, creativity, and depth.

THRILLED to see this announcement! I have a few logistical concerns relative to CECs (contacted Pacifica already), but if those can be sorted I look forward to learning from you through this course. I know it will be brilliant. x

Wow, this offering looks phenomenal! I loved the first iteration of this Fairy Tale course (chef’s kiss), but I must say that this version is my absolute dream-class. At this time, I don’t have the means to enroll through Pacifica, so I am just over-the-moon that this class exists, and I hope it will become available in the future. It is an absolute pleasure to learn with Sharon. Enjoy!

I would love to take this course but, being carer for three family members between 7 and 101 years old, the possible difficulty to connect to the Zoom meetings due to their needs and time differences between Pacific and Greenwich Mean Time and the world's worst internet connection make it very possible I will not be able to keep up.

Wishing all who can best wishes, though! Hope it is a great experience for both staff and students.

I have just registered. I am very excited; this is exactly what I am working on personally and professionally. I am creating a therapeutic modality around archetype and hero's journey.
