TOKYO AUTUMN 2016


THE LITTLE PRINCE: REVELATION AND HEALING TOOLS


Who has not read it once or twice in a lifetime?

Published in 1943, The Little Prince book became the second most read book after the Bible, and it has been translated to 250 languages. What makes it so lovable and famous? After some decades I recently rediscovered this wonderful book and I was astounded by its enormous potential and by the self-healing techniques it reveals.

Whereas the modern myth of Peter Pan shows the failed relationship between the adult and the inner child, The Little Prince teaches us how to make contact with our inner child, and in that way recover our creativity and love for life.

In a simple but striking way, The Little Prince offers a contrast between the point of view of the adult and the point of view the inner child. One of the keys of this book is to learn how the inner child guides and educates the adult.

We will explore the literary qualities of this work, the traditions The Little Prince represents, as well as the psychological and spiritual path it achieves. From the perspective of Jungian Psychology and traditional astrology, we will learn to recognise the archetypal process of this tale, and thus, how we can learn to relate ourselves to it in our natal chart.
