In The Spotlight
This is an experiential workshop. Participants in the course will sculpt archetypal images from their own dreams. They will learn about what Jung means by the "creative process," engaging the unconscious in a hands-on way, working with clay. They will learn about the role that "active imagination" plays and how to use it in sculpting the psyche. They will discover the potential values inherent in archetypal dream images.
“At the beginning of a new millennium, we are participating in the birth of a new evolutionary era, one with radically different aims and values from those which dominated the patriarchal era. Mythologically speaking, this new era invites the marriage of lunar and solar consciousness and the birth of the ‘child’ of a new kind of consciousness arising in the soul of humanity that would be the fruit of this union and the true ‘saviour’ of our species. . . It is a tremendously exciting, challenging and creative time to be alive.” ~Jungian Analyst Anne Baring, "Awakening to the Feminine."
As an American woman who grew up in the ’50s, I’ve witnessed and experienced enormous benefits from the activation of the feminine archetype. This is why the upcoming election feels so important to me. I hear that many younger women who weren’t around in those early days consider Hillary Clinton to be just another ‘good old boy’ in a woman’s body, but I disagree. I know what she’s been through. Despite her acceptance in the ‘good old boy’ political system she’s managed to develop her feminine side to an unusual degree, and with help from Jungian Analyst, Anne Baring, I hope to convince you of this.
Deborah Kaufman and Alan Snitow’s ambitious and energetic new film “Company Town” sounds the alert about threats of economic change to San Francisco. “Company Town” focuses on two beloved areas of the City - The Mission District and Chinatown. Both neighborhoods have offered cheap housing and blue collar employment to waves of immigrants.
