Alchemy: The Art of Transformation with Bette Joram, Ph.D.

Part of the Jungian Wisdom School Seminar Series

Saturday mornings: February 4, 11, 18, 25, 2023.

9:00-10:30am PST.   ONLINE SERIES

C. G. Jung first turned to Alchemy for personal illumination in coping with trauma brought on by his break with Freud. Alchemical symbolism eventually suggested to Jung that there was a process in the unconscious, one that had a goal beyond discharging tension and hiding pain. This seminar will explore alchemical symbols and transformative processes as they relate to dreams, personal growth, and transformation. We will learn Alchemy by doing Alchemy, guided by the text of the class, the wisdom of the instructor and the experience of the members of the seminar. Dr. Joram wrote her doctoral thesis on Jungʼs theory of alchemy and its value in the process of change, transformation, and individuation.

Geneen Marie Haugen, Ph.D. – Awakening Planetary Imagination

Friday, February 17th, 2023. 7:00-9:00pm. ONLINE LECTURE 

Amidst a tempest of climate disruption, social disarray, creature extinctions, ecosystem collapse and other mayhem, too few leaders have perceptual skills, sufficient imagination, or a strong enough compass to navigate the riptides of enormous change. Perhaps we need help from intelligence that is older and far more than human. What if the membrane between the planetary psyche and human imagination is permeable, allowing for Earth to press its own longings into our human awareness – both as individual persons, and as a species? On Friday evening – through poetry, thought experiments, and other fascinations – we’ll explore foundational ideas that suggest the possibility of a planetary psyche that might be participatory with the individual (and collective) human psyche.

Geneen Marie Haugen, Ph.D. – Imagination and Reanimation of the World 

Saturday, February 18th, 2023. 1:00-4:00pm. ONLINE WORKSHOP

On Saturday, in the experiential workshop, “Imagination and the Reanimation of the World,” we’ll consider the possibility that all beings and presences are alive, intelligent, and saturated in subjectivity. We’ll explore how we might make ourselves more permeable to their dreams, as well as to what Thomas Berry called “the Dream of the Earth.” We’ll engage practices that can help erode our customary psychic habits enough to allow greater receptivity to the voices, images, and wisdom of our fellow inhabitants and of the planetary organism. We’ll consider – as poet A.R. Ammons writes – how to become more “available / to any shape that may be / summoning itself / through me / from the self not mine but ours.” Wild revelations that seem to emerge from something that is not quite – or not only – human may help us find our way through a necessary sea change in our relationship with Earth.
