Jack & Narcissus
Jack and the Beanstalk is the boy who goes on an adventure, but also gets filled with greed. This is being paired with the myth of Narcissus, a familiar tale that helps us understand how fixation on self can be destructive, and dealing with narcissism is a big challenge in modern relationships.
Jack will help us explore adventure, spontaneity, and the ways we were (or were not) encouraged to take risks and self-generate. But this tale also reflects covetousness, greed, and the ways we hoard our good, and the need to learn to trust the flow of abundance.
Narcissistic parents traumatize their offspring, and whether that bred debilitating empathy, or turned you into a covert narcissist yourself, through this story we can explore all sorts of ways that ineffective mirroring generated wounds of self-expression that can be healed.
