October 11-12, 1991: Josephine Evetts-Secker

Lectures: Illustrated by reference to poetry, paintings and dreams, these lectures will explore symbolically some of the mechanisms by which the soul is disturbed and quickened, to bring new contents to consciousness. This material is divided into a related series of slide/lecture presentations which will begin Friday night and continue on Saturday.
