December 12-13, 1986: Fraser Boa

Lecture: Masculinity, Thief of Hearts

Great emphasis is currently being placed on the importance of the feminine in the development of the human personality. This lecture will examine the role of the masculine in the liberation of the human heart.

Workshop: My Brother Cain

C.G. Jung introduced the concept of archetypes into modern psychology. He saw archetypes as patterns of instinctual behavior more or less the same everywhere and in everyone, and he found these archetypal patterns expressed in mythology, in literature and in dreams. This workshop will examine the archetypal motif of the hostile brothers, particularly as played out in the biblical myth of Cain, the rejected son condemned to exile for the murder of his brother Abel.
