An International Seminaron Fairy-tale Therapy

10-13 March 2015

Venue: Hotel Tivoli Sintra, Portugal
Organization: Moonluza, Unipessoal Lda.

"Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale”
Hans Christian Andersen

Story-telling is one of the most ancient and beautiful traditions. It allows “travelling with one’s mind” and opens up new worlds. It has great therapeutic potential: it can change our moods; develop our imagination; deepen our understanding of everyday life; and help us control or face our emotions. The benefits of stories and tales are numerous, dating back millennia: even in the time of Pharaoh
Rameses the library was called “the house of healing for the soul.”

The Seminar in Sintra aims to highlight and delve more deeply into Fairy-tale Therapy, a method gaining more and more recognition
worldwide. We will bring together international scholars, experts, enthusiasts and those who use this therapy in their varying fields.

Sintra will be a stage for exchanging experiences, ideas, research, points of view and of inspiration.

This location was chosen especially because of its truly fairy-tale charm. For Hans Christian Andersen it was “the most beautiful place in Portugal” and Lord Byron called it his “Glorious Eden”.

We invite proposals for papers/presentations on fairy-tale and story-telling therapy.

Together we can contribute to the development of using Fairy-tales in many fields of life!
Proposal forms should be submitted by 15 January 2015 to the following email address:

Proposals and presentations must be in English.

Components of the Proposal:
Title and author
Short summary
Keyword Set
Font: Calibri 11

We also offer the possibility of attending the seminar as an audience member.

Participation is confirmed immediately after payment of the registration fee.
