Every human being lives a fairy tale -- an unconscious myth that works on us, shapes us, and points to our truth. Often the story is filled with danger and foreboding. The good news is, for those who examine it closely, the story also carries with it balm and healing.
'Here All Dwell Free' is an in-depth exploration of two classic fairy tales that have particular significance for women. The Handless Maiden will resonate in a special way with women who feel powerless in the contemporary world. In a similar way, Briar Rose is about falling asleep and waking, of abandonment and allowing oneself to be discovered by love. While the stories recounted here may be ancient, they speak to us today in unmistakable symbolic language, inviting us to enter them, live them, and be made whole again.
