Lecture: Is Modern Humanity Undergoing a Rite of
"We have not understood yet that the discovery of the unconscious means an enormous spiritual task, which must be accomplished if we wish to preserve our civilization." C. G. Jung
We are facing a threshold of fundamental collective transformation that bears a striking resemblance to what takes place on the individual level in initiatory rites of passage, in near-death experiences, in spiritual crises, and in critical stages of what Jung called the individuation process.
Can we find a place of equilibrium, an eye in the storm, from which we can engage this time of intense polarization and rapid change more consciously and thus more skillfully?
Join Richard Tarnas for this evening's lecture as he draws on depth psychology and philosophy, religious studies and cultural history as we seek together a larger context for both understanding and action.
Richard Tarnas is a professor of psychology and cultural history at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, where he founded the graduate program in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness. He also lectures on archetypal studies and depth psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara. He is the author of The Passion of the Western Mind, a history of the Western world view from the ancient Greek to the postmodern that became both a best seller and a required text in many universities; and Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View, which received the Book of the Year Prize from the Scientific and Medical Network in the UK. Professor Tarnas frequently lectures at various Jung institutes and societies in the U.S. as well as at Eranos in Switzerland, and is on the Board of Governors of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco.
