A Survey of Archetypal Studies Jeremy Taylor Friday, Oct 9th 7 pm - 9 pm Saturday, Oct 10th 9 am - 5 pm at the Doubletree Riverside - Boise with 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 remembered? 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?
