Symbols are our first language, the foundation for our perennial teachings for psychological well-being: dreams, myths, and folklore. This course uses Jean Cocteau's sublime film La Belle et la Bete to explore the symbolic language of folk tales. We will practice the art of mining cinematic imagery and technique to search for what this luminous film reveals about its archetypal, psychological, and spiritual themes.

Recognize psychospiritual and developmental essentials of animal-groom folk tales.
Cultivate dream skills, working with key scenes in the film as dream material.
