Workshop: Up From Scapegoating: Archetypal Theory with examples from Human Sacrifice in the Andes
Arthur and Pilar will deepen the notions presented in Friday's lecture by discussion and experiential opportunities for the group present. In particular they will attempt to redefine the universal collective process of scapegoating through encouraging the transformation of the scapegoat image into one which personifies the group's creative potential. They will bring pertinent 'effigies' to facilitate this new awareness. Effigies are ceremonial and artistic objects collected from various cultures and traditions which can be used for symbolic interactive play, altar building, and to create a parallel universe which mirrors and echoes the overt relationships in the here and now. Group members may observe or participate as they wish.
Learning Objectives: 1. Develop depth perspective on small group scapegoating behavior. 2. Generalize this group dynamic to larger collective scapegoating processes. 3. Develop new ways of thinking and specific methodologies for decreasing the negative scapegoating potential and increasing its positive and creative manifestations.
