Symbolic Images and Energies of Inner Transformation
January 21, 2005 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm PST
In a time of cultural fragmentation and danger, many of us yearn for wisdom and practical guidance that can help us live meaningful lives. Such wisdom and direction must speak directly to our inner lives as individuals at least as much as to our outer conduct in the world and our relations with others. Contemporary and traditional depth psychologies aim at facilitating essential processes of inner transformation and renewal.
On Friday evening, we will explore “horizontal” and “vertical”transformations, using two symbolic images: that of an inner psychic “law” and its liberating transgression, and that of the psyche as an “oil lamp” which transforms itself by consuming itself.
