Relationship Between Men and Women as Seen by William Blake
February 18, 1989 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm PST
The shocks in the Industrial Revolution, the rise of corporate life and the call of women into the workforce, the weakening of the Inner King and Inner Queen have all left their mark in the relationships between men and women. Where are we now? Blake’s genius discerned powerful zones within the psyche that affect men and women and in this day we will look at his poems, ideas and paintings with a view to what they say that is helpful and relevant now. Bring questions and stories.
