“My Name is Legion” – Archetypal Images of Spirit

February 17, 2001 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm PST


Some depth psychologists have avoided talk about the “spirit,” preferring instead to speak about soul. But archetypal psychology may have much to teach about images of so-called “spirits,” and especially about its shadow side, that is, about the dangers of spirituality to the individual and collective psyche. This workshop will explore the varieties of “spiritual” experience in everyday life and the different ways such experience is imagined. Ancient myths and religions will be explored for their stored-up treasury of images of “spirit” — images such as “wind,” “breath,” “fire,” “frogs” and “pigs.”
