Event Description

9:30 AM to 5:30 PM

The Firehouse

Fort Mason Center, San Francisco

A boxed lunch, to be delivered onsite, can be ordered in advance.


Each generation must formulate for itself the primal powers in collision or combination that constitute its most-frequently polarized opposites. Shakespeare’s alter-ego Prospero deployed Caliban, an ugly, earthbound spirit, and Ariel, a graceful angel of the air. Nietzsche identified the Greek gods Apollo and Dionysus as the twin roots of the mythopoeic imagination. In the late 1960s, James Hillman focused on the split between senex (rigid archetype of age) and puer (restless image of eternal youth) as the unconscious basis of that era’s gap in mutual understanding.  Do we know which competing consciousnesses structure our historical present? This symposium will bring Jungian analysts together with artists, activists, the audience, and each other for a daylong engagement with the tensions of our time.
