Conjuring Deities: Archetypal Presence in Ugaritic and Tibetan Visionary Texts
Dr. Steven D. Goodman and Heidi Gustafson
Sunday, July 16th
801 Ladera Lane Santa Barbara
Free & Open to the Public
Both Ugaritic and Tibetan visionary texts offer a rich field of exploration in archetypal studies, specifically for those interested in the alchemical practice of conjuring Deities — living presences who carry the catalytic power to engender profound transformations.
We will explore two ritual passages: the Cosmic Revelation Formula from the Semitic ‘Baal and Anat’ cycle, and the Mountain Smoke Offering Ritual from the Tibetan tantric ‘Life-Force of the Wisdom Holders’ cycle.
Steven D. Goodman, Ph.D. is Program Director and Core Faculty in Asian Philosophies and Cultures at the California Institute of Integral Studies (San Francisco). He co-edited Tibetan Buddhism: Reason and Revelation (SUNY Press, 1992), and authored The Buddhist Psychology of Awakening (Shambhala, forthcoming).
Heidi Gustafson is an independent artist and translator who lives and works Bellingham, WA. Currently she collaborates with research scientists to study symbolic, alchemical and ritual use of mineral pigments. More about her work can be found online at earlyfutures.com.
