The “Spiritualized Earth” and the Birth of the New Consciousness
March 16, 2012 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm PDT
“the psychological problem of today is a spiritual problem, a religious problem…” —C. G. Jung, C.G. Jung Speaking: Interview and Encounters, “Does the World stand on the Verge of Spiritual Rebirth?”
In this lecture Patricia will describe the common, definitive root of some of these teachings in the writings and scientific studies of Goethe. Both C. G. Jung and Rudolf Steiner, father of Biodynamic farming, were deeply influenced by Goethe’s work, a perspective denigrated since the days of Descartes. What supports the “living substance” in ourselves and the other, even the not-human? What undermines its liveliness? Practical applications in the dynamics of “being in relationship with” and “having dominion over” will be given, whether in analysis, farming, or our relationship to the environment.
