Richard Tarnas, Ph.D.

Humanity’s Rite of Passage

February 15, Friday Lecture 7:30 pm

Depth psychology has long made us aware of the importance of understanding our personal histories. We have sought ever deeper insight into our individual biographies, seeking to render conscious those unconscious forces and complexes, rooted in our personal histories, that shape our lives. Many now recognize that same task as critical for our entire society. In the collective consciousness of a civilization, history itself is the great unconscious to be explored and integrated.

Join philosopher and cultural historian Richard Tarnas this evening as he speaks about our age of transformation and discusses the challenges and possibilities of this dramatic time for which Jung used the term kairos, the pivotal moment for a fundamental spiritual and cultural change in human experience.

Gimme Shelter:
Weathering the Storm in an Archetypal Cosmos

February 16, Saturday Workshop 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

C. G. Jung broke free of limiting modern assumptions to recognize that psyche was not confined to the human, that it permeated all of nature, the cosmos itself. He also recognized the extraordinary value of astrology in shining an unexpected light on the archetypal dynamics of human life. The evidence of consistent correlations between planetary alignments and world events, as seen through the lens of archetypal astrology, can provide us with much needed context for our wildly dramatic time. What is the current planetary situation, what gods are now in motion, and what are the historical precedents? How might our contemporary culture be transformed by the recognition that an intimate bond exists between the deep psyche and the cosmos? Join Richard Tarnas for a "state of the world report" on the archetypal astrological context of our national and global moment.
