October 16-17, 1987: Linda Leonard

Lecture: Addiction and Creativity

In this lecture Dr. Leonard will explore the spiritual fire of addictions and the archetype of the Demon-the Demon Lover behind addictions which possess us and the creative Daimon which inspires us to new states of being.

Workshop: Dialogue among participants will focus on such archetypes as the Money-Lender, Underground Man, Gambler, Romantic, Trickster, and on dreams, stories and other symbolic material and personal experiences which lead to the Turning Point.
