Encountering Our Animal Guides

September 19, 2003 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Friday Talk:

The animal image is a frequent one in dreams, in which a particular animal takes on a symbolic meaning that is not immediately apparent from the way the same animal behaves in life.This lecture presents animals that have played important roles in world art, explore the symbolic status that each of these animal types has assumed in the creative unconscious, and compare the image of the animal to the ways in which the actual animal is encountered in the natural world.
