Event Description

Over time, humans in western culture have undergone a profound restructuring of the psyche resulting in a traumatic sense of separation. Today we face a growing set of challenges on ecological and social fronts. Industrial development, technology, consumerism and increasing populations combined with a tendency to value science and rational thought over tending nature are key contributors to the complex situation at hand.

The era of the Anthropocene—a term referring to the significant impact of human activity on the planet— has arrived.

The current crisis requires that we reflect on our situation from a depth psychological perspective, contemplating how we might tap into the underlying archetypal themes at work in the culture and begin to articulate them in ways that inspire and move us to personal and collective action

Format

This symposium offers a multi-layered opportunity to engage the topic with peers from a depth psychological perspective, allowing deep reflection and thoughtful response as well as real connection and interaction within the community

Symposium includes:

  • 12 video depth dialogues: 12 different scholars/practitioners (see above) discuss aspects of earth, climate and dreams with Bonnie Bright PhD 
  • written transcripts of each dialogue
  • 2 of the video dialogues released each week for viewing (approx 45 mins each)
  • 1 live online video discussion session each week allows participants to come together as peers to share feedback and engage in deep discussion. Be prepared to turn your webcam on when you share for a more connected group experience
  • Online repository for sharing art, poetry, dreams or writing inspired by the depth dialogues/weekly discussions

Our vision is that the video dialogues, weekly discussions, and art and poetry archives may be expanded and disseminated in the future in a multitude of ways to create ever-growing engagement and inspiration—including the potential development of educational content or curricula for academic use; the creation of multimedia projects such as video or documentary film; as well as inclusion in presentational format to conferences. If you have ideas for these or other potential projects, or would like to collaborate, email us

Mark Sipowicz, Jungian Wilderness Guide and Board Member for Depth Psychology Alliance will join us as a co-host for the symposium! So excited to have Mark aboard!

Mark Sipowicz loves adventure, good conversation, books and wild places. He holds an MA in depth psychology from the Pacifica Graduate Institute and is a Jungian Wilderness Guide. All of his work with psyche and nature fall under the title of Soul and Stream. This includes his seasonally offered men’s wilderness retreats, the Heart Arrow Quest; his ongoing dialogue with community in the Meetup, A Bolder Conversation With Nature; and his private practice offering experiential teachings in the Art of Quest.

He plays ice hockey and climbs mountains with sons and other fathers. He commercial fished in Alaska, survived an avalanche, opened and ran a bookstore, and studied literature in Missoula. He has trained extensively with Animas Valley Institute, the School of Lost Borders and Rites of Passage (Santa Rosa). His first vision quest in Death Valley almost a decade ago, changed everything for him. He is a father and husband living in Boulder.


He enjoys and finds support in his affiliation with the broad, international and soul-full memberships of both the Depth Psychology Alliance and the Wilderness Guides Council...oh yes, and he still reads books, sometimes cover to cover!
