An Evening With...

Annilee Oppenheimer

Fairy tales have captivated the imaginations of humans around the world for generations.  They are symbolic stories that contain universal themes that offer healing insights about dynamics of the psyche.  We will view and discuss the film Once Upon A Loss:   A New Look at Cinderella, produced and directed by Carolyn Russell Stonewell.  Unlike the Disney version of Cinderella, this film shows that this fairy tale is much more than a rags-to-riches story about "getting the prince."  Based on the Grimms' version of the fairy tale, this film presents Cinderella as a story that conveys essential wisdom about recovering from loss.  Using this film as a springboard for discussion, we will take a fresh look at the Cinderella narrative to explore what it tells us about navigating the psychological journey out of despair into a stronger and more authentic sense of self. 


A retired lawyer, Annilee Oppenheimer enjoys exploring dreams, poetry, music, archetypal symbolism, storytelling, and active imagination as vehicles to make connections – both with our deepest selves and with others.  She is a Haden Institute certified dream group leader, and she leads dream groups.
