Event Description

Featured Speaker: Ann Belford Ulanov, MDiv, PhD, LHD
Root, Uprooting, Rootedness
Using theory and clinical examples, we will explore soul initiated by three awakenings to root, to uprooting, to rootedness. Beneath intellect toward paradox, beneath adaptation necessitating compliance toward creative perceiving of life, beneath differentiation that turns into divisions, lies root of personal and collective life which may become uprooting thus moving us toward seeking rootedness.

Mary Wells Barron, MA, MIM, MBA
A Tear in the Veil: Beauty and Shadow in the Art of Alexander McQueen
Mary Wells Barron will explore the archetypal roots and symbolism in the creations of the British fashion designer, Alexander McQueen. In 2011, a year after his death, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York launched a major retrospective of his work, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. This talk was inspired by his designs of astonishing archetypal power. Forty-five images from Savage Beauty will illustrate this exploration of his “soul clothes,” as they reflect McQueen’s creative genius and its shadow.

Awakening Lunar Consciousness: An Alchemical Perspective
For Jung, alchemy provided the very root imagery of transformation as it bridged from the past into the future, to analytical psychology and the individuation process itself -- “It is only possible to come to a right understanding and appreciation of a contemporary psychological problem when we can reach a point outside our own time from which to observe it.”  In “The Psychology of the Transference” he used a series of alchemical plates from The Rosarium Philosophorum, The Rosary of the Philosophers, to demonstrate the relational individuation process that occurs in analysis and intimate relationships.  This presentation will look at the entire series as it presents a template for the transformation of solar (masculine) and lunar (feminine) soul energies.  The formation of a deeply reflective lunar consciousness is necessary to facilitate deep change within the individual and social systems.  A new “third thing” is being sought that requires “compassionate witnessing” towards the events that happen to oneself in life -- only from this stance can one hope to find “right action.”
