Dreams, Life, Death, and the Alchemical Wedding
February 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm
What do dreams, near death experiences and archetypal phenomena surrounding death reveal to us about the mysteries of life, death and the beyond? How do they prepare us for death, our own and for the death of loved ones? When the veils between the worlds become very thin, our world views can alchemically change, opening us to the psychoid and to life changing experiences in the imaginal realms of reality. The experience of the metaphor of death is continually at the center of any authentic and lasting transformation. Alchemy and Jung’s work are built around this as the cornerstone of transformational processes, individually and collectively.
