The right way to wholeness is made up of...fateful detours & wrong turnings. It is a lentissimo via, not straight but snakelike, a path that unites the opposites in the manner of the guiding caduceus, a path whose labryrinthine twists & turns are not lacking in terrors ~ C.G. Jung, Psychology & Alchemy
Kabbalah means "to receive" and The Tree of Life is a mandala which reveals the flow and movement of feminine & masculine energy from the divine to earth & back to the divine. It is the Tree of Life & of Knowledge, a magical key to how life, the cosmos & psyche are revealed within time & space.
The cross, the star, the symbol of the Tao all live in the heart of the tree symbolizing life, the union of heaven & earth, spirit & matter. It also represents the center, meeting the divine in the human heart, with arms extended out into the four directions.
Join Alliance member Eva Rider & Colleen Russell as they explore the many symbols imbued in tree & how Jung's work on alchemy & Marion Woodman's BodySoul work can be depicted through symbols of the tree.
