Oh, Sister Where Art Thou?

November 10, 2006 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm PST


We live in a remarkable time, a time in which our intellectual prowess is unsurpassed and seems to grow in leaps and bounds. We can soar to the moon, design life in a test tube and condense the entire encyclopedia into a tiny chip. Our brains are in overdrive and yet, something is sorely missing. Some characterize this element that is lacking as a HER – a more feminine way of being. Despite years of progress within the women’s movement, the breadth and depth of the feminine archetype has plenty of wilderness yet to be explored. By Her very nature, She is hard to describe – emotional, relational, closer to the instinctual and natural worlds. Rather than trying to get to know Her, we prefer to tame, control and manage Her. She complies as She adapts, adorns and abdicates Her own genuine authority. And everybody loses. What sets Her apart? Why is She so easily demonized? What are we afraid of? What is your relationship to the feminine? How do you respond to the feminine in others? How can we help Her thrive in this world?

Related Workshop: An Unlikely Heroine

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.
