The Golden Thread Workshop

The Golden Thread - FirebirdFinding Meaning in Traditional Tales

Deepen your exploration of story with this five-session intensive.  

Explore the roots of meaning in a fairytale of your choice using a rich variety of methods. Each week vocal, physical and image based exercises will lead workshop participants deeper into the heart of the tale – showing us ways we can unlock its meaning for ourselves and our audiences whether on stage, in the classroom or around the kitchen table.

By the end of this workshop, participants will gain an understanding of how meaning (both psychological, archetypal and mythic) is buried within a traditional tale. They will have learned several ways to discover and then unlock their own relationship to the hidden meanings of a tale through meditative explorations, body sources and active imagination. In addition they will gain familiarity with seminal thinkers in this field, intellectual figures from the history of religion, psychology and myth.

This is a five-week intensive session. We will meet Wednesday evenings from 7:00-9:00 pm on October 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th, and November 4th. Admission is $150, with a discounted rate for those who have taken the workshop before. Previous participants can contact Diane at to request a discount code. Workshop is limited to six participants. Open to all levels of experience.

Tickets are for the entire series.
