The Archetypal Animus and its Effects on
The Nativity. In the West every Christmas, the
Nativity scene is widely exposed to the general public. Caught in the frantic
rush of the season, people continuously pass by this majestic scene. The question
hardly asked and rarely answered is do each of us relate to these central figures?
In this one-day seminar, images, stories, and music are used to stir up and share
the relevance of these figures in the lives of the participants.|
Betrayal: Seduction and Abandonment in Soul Making. Love and betrayal are two powerful forces very much alive today and calling for attention. In the weekend workshop, the betrayal motif developed in the tale "Amor and Psyche" is closely examined. Together we will read the tale to learn from and become aware of both the destructive and transformative power of betrayal as experienced in our individual lives.
Waning of the Moon: A Journey to Baba Yaga's Hut. Growing old, aging, and ultimately meeting death constitute an inevitable phase of the life cycle. As we read the Russian fairytale of 'Vaselisa the Beautiful' we will explore in particular the symbolic relevance and presence of Baba Yaga. Together we will examine both the dark and light powers of the 'Old One' to gain personal insight and discover meaning concealed in this developmental stage of life.
Introduction to Dream Analysis. Dreams offer us symbolic stories that can open memories, insights, and experiences; they can also awaken dormant qualities in the personality and reveal unconscious projections in our relationships. The dream is one of the guides that can help us bridge our inner and outer worlds. In this seminar, sample dreams from participants are looked at through the lens of analytical psychology to explore how the dream can offer new points of view and ways of getting over deadening one-sidedness.
Is Anger a Barrier to Love? What is anger? How does it manifest? What masks does it wear? How can it destroy our bodies, our relationships and our society? Can this powerful force be a conduit for transfor-mation and love? In this one-day seminar, we will address these questions as we explore this powerful emotion as it affects our capacity to love. Art, dreams, life stories and motifs from myths an fairy tales will be used to elicit discussion through personal experiences.
