C.G. Jung Society January Lecture: “Weathering the Storm in Our Unprecedented Times”
Following of one of the most controversial presidential elections in U.S. history and in the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic, international speaker, cultural historian, author and astrologer Dr. Richard Tarnas will give a lecture on “Weathering the Storm in Our Unprecedented Times on January 29, 7–9 p.m. Presented by the C.G. Jung Society of Sarasota, this live Zoom lecture will provide a state of the world report through a archetypal astrological context.
Drawing on the work of Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Jung, who recognized the value of astrology in shining a light on the archetypal dynamics of human life, Dr. Tarnas will review the current planetary situation, what gods are now in motion, and historical precedents for these modern conditions. He will also explore the question of how our culture could be transformed by recognition of a bond between the deep psyche and the cosmos.
Dr. Tarnas is a professor of philosophy and cultural history at the California Institute of Integral Studies. His book Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View received the Book of the Year award from the Scientific and Medical Network, and is the basis for an upcoming documentary Changing of the Gods. He also wrote The Passion of the Western Mind, a history of the Western worldview, from the ancient Greeks to postmodern societies.
