Humans are storytellers. Across cultures and ages, our tales have served to teach, transmit generational wisdom, warn and entertain. We explore The Thousand and One Nights, a story collection from Persia before 1000 CE. Shahrazad, the storyteller, shows in her being and through her stories how to see another’s pain and how to relate so that healing can occur. What Shahrazad is and transmits can be useful in education, conflict resolution and therapeutic endeavors.

Marga Speicher, Ph.D., is a psychotherapist and Jungian psychoanalyst, retired. A lover of literature and folklore, Marga leads workshops on symbolic understanding of images in dreams, stories, and everyday life. These images can open doors to the core of our humanity — individually, culturally, archetypally.
