An Unlikely Heroine

November 11, 2006 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm PST


Together, we will watch Dangerous Beauty, the story of a sixteenth century Venetian courtesan who has been tutored in the fine art of lovemaking, poetry and conversation. Ironically, it is she who is uniquely positioned to stand on her own long enough to be valued for herself, providing a remarkable role model for those of us in search of feminine strength. In our discussion of the film, we will delve deeper to excavate the too easily idealized, then quickly maligned, but very precious archetypal feminine. This is not just a women’s issue! Men and women alike are suffering the severe consequences of a marginalized feminine. We all carry a form of the feminine within and are better off if we have a good relationship to Her. So, men, please feel welcome; you are sorely needed in this discussion.

Virginia Apperson, M.N. has been intrigued by the enormous potential within the archetypal domain for a long time. In her youth, she knew there was more available to her, but lacked the language or the tools to find it. Finally she stumbled upon the writings of Jung who helped her unlock the doors to the treasure trove. After completing her training at the C.G. Jung Institute in Zürich, Switzerland, she returned to Atlanta, Georgia, where she is in private practice. In addition to her analytic work, she sees couples and leads dream groups.
