"Whoever speaks in primordial images speaks with a thousand voices; he enthralls and overpowers ... he transmutes our personal destiny into the destiny of mankind, and evokes in us all those beneficent forces that ever and anon have enabled humanity to find a refuge from every peril and to outlive the longest night." - C.G. Jung
In his free teleseminar, Dr. Michael Conforti will introduce the theme for the 2013 Assisi conference and provide details about the conference experience. Join us!
There are times in our life when the vistas of all that we love, are blurred, when those arms we long to rest in seem ever so far away, and the passion that we have felt, is suddenly absent. It is in these moments that we may feel that the Gods have grown silent.
It may be a serious illness, a loss of a loved one, of a personal Dark Night of the Soul, that creates this estrangement from soul and Self, and this darkening which the alchemists refer to as the Nigredo. It is those moments where meaning seems lost and the darkness of despair threatens to engulf us that try our souls. Yet, as Jung alludes, there is still a voice calling out to us in the darkness, words of primordial wisdom which, if we are able to hear them, will give us a "place of refuge" and the strength to "outlive the longest night."
From the mystics, the alchemist and from Jung, we learn that it may only be through an experience of this darkening that we can find our way to transcendence, and a re-connection to what is good within the world and within the psyche.
The 2013 conference will take an in-depth look at how it is that we can recover our sense of vitality and meaning in the world, through our dreams, creativity and relationships, and find a way to live with and live through those challenges.
