Symbolic Images and Energies of Inner Transformation
January 22, 2005 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm PST
On Saturday, we will look at an all-encompassing “circumambulatory” transformation, as depicted in an important set of Renaissance alchemical illustrations.
All three of these image systems function much like dream images which can facilitate a dialogue in depth between consciousness and the unconscious. These systems belong to psychological and spiritual lineages, which promote practical ways of working on oneself aimed at fundamental inner transformation. We will discuss them in light of the seminal insights of C. G. Jung.
