It is a collection of fairy tale interpretations keeping homeopathic philosophy, materia medica and repertory as its base. It helps us understand the minds of our patients through these characters. The book is written equally for homeopaths involved with Jungian analytical methods as well as for homeopaths who know nothing regarding psychotherapy and psychology.
