Good Shepherd Center, Room 202, 4649 Sunnyside Ave. N., Seattle

The evening lecture will consist of an overview of Jung's concept of the collective unconscious as represented in archetypal images from throughout the world and, as Jung wrote, back through the grey mists of time. Imagery of these ageless themes will be presented through slide pictures which will include Jung's carvings at Bollingen and sandplay work of children. In reflecting on this material and images from the Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism, we will explore the universal creative impulse through which humankind has sought to bring unknown possibilities to light by means of art and story.
Learning Objectives for Lecture:
- To apply Jung's concept of the collective unconscious to personal or clinical understanding, including Sandplay.
- To understand how archetypal imagery represents the contents of the collective unconscious, applicable from prehistory to current times.
- To know how to use the resources available for researching symbols.
