Dr. Safron Rossi on the Kore Archetype
Kore, from the Greek word for Virgin or Maiden, is a most mysterious figure. Youthful, elusive and paradoxical, the Kore is unto-herself, sovereign, yet deeply related. Who is this figure that is accorded such psychological power and significance? This lecture will explore what this archetype is, the mythology of Korai triad goddesses, and their importance to both the study of the archetypal feminine and women’s psychology.
Safron Rossi, Ph.D. is Associate Core Faculty at Pacifica Graduate Institute in the Jungian and Archetypal Studies MA/PhD program, teaching courses on mythology, archetypal symbolism, and scholarly praxis. For many years she was Curator at Opus Archives. Her work focuses on Greek mythology, archetypal psychology, astrology, goddess traditions, and feminist studies. Safron is editor of Joseph Campbell's Goddesses: Mysteries of the Feminine Divine (2013). She is also co-editor with Keiron LeGrice of the forthcoming Jung on Astrology (2017). She is currently writing a book on the Kore archetype and triad goddesses from which the lecture material is drawn. Learn more at www.thearchetypaleye.com."
