Archetypes, Dreams, & the World Soul
An Introduction to Depth Psychology
~12 week online course~
Begins March 26th, 2019
In this course we will dive into the world of depth psychology, specifically we will explore the landscape and language of Jungian and archetypal studies. We will dig into Jung’s ideas—including archetypes, synchronicities, complexes, dreams, the collective unconscious and shadow—and we will discuss and explore what he meant by the process of individuation.
Building on Jung’s view of an archetypal reality, we will to traverse into the world of archetypal psychology, with its dynamic mythic figures and untamable dream images. We will walk into a perspective that sees the soul-spark in each thing, in each event.
As we move beyond a view of a skin-encased soul into a view of an ensouled world, we will seek to move from a posture of mastery into a spirit of deep participation with a living and dynamic world. In other words, through these inquiries we will cultivate an understanding that soul and psyche do not live inside us; we live in the midst of psyche, we live in soul.
Moving into this sensibility, we open the possibility of seeing a world re-enchanted and of finding the magic in the mundane.
