There is a growing need in our global society for studies
that search for and examine basic patterns of meaning
and significance that inhere in the growing mountain of
data and facts the various hard and not-so-hard sciences
are accumulating, to say nothing of innovations in the
arts and the cross-cultural information that is daily
becoming more available, as well as more necessary for
responsible, creative, responsive global citizenship. This
kind of universal “pattern recognition” can be cultivated
in many ways; one of the best ways is the focused study
of those recurrent symbolic forms and dramas that
Carl Jung, (borrowing a word from the Ancient Greek
philosopher, Heraclitus), called “archetypes of the collective
unconscious.” These archetypal patterns, images, and
dramas recur in the dreams and waking thoughts and
fantasies of individuals in all cultures, as well as in the
myths and sacred narratives of the world’s religions, and
can even be discerned in the tropes of popular culture and
historical events.
Discussion will include:
What is an Archetype? How does it manifest in the body, in the creative imagination, in
history, and in the spontaneous products of creative imagination, most particularly in dreams
What is Unconscious Projection? What role does it play in our individual and collective lives?
Since it is unconscious, how can we best become more aware of its presence in, and influence
upon our individual and collective lives? How can we best recognize archetypal images and
patterns in our lives and the life of the web of interconnected life on the planet? Since Dr. Carl
Jung is the primary scholar of the archetypal realm in the
Early Registration
Western world, what do we need to know about his life and
after September 25th $150
How can we best integrate and incorporate Archetypal
Studies? What bearing does “my” psychological type and
function have on the form and depth of “my” archetypal
studies? What expressive exercises and “arts-asmeditation” am “I” best suited for?
