The Comic Genius: An Archetypal Astrological Perspective
"There is no place without Gods and no activity that does not enact them. Every fantasy, every experience has its archetypal reason. There is nothing that does not belong to one God or another." -James Hillman
In this entertaining day-long workshop we will explore comic creativity and the increasingly significant role that comedy plays in cultural and political life today. Drawing on a graduate seminar that Professor Tarnas taught with John Cleese at the California Institute of Integral Studies in 2009, we will examine comedy from several overlapping approaches depth psychology, cultural history, biography, politics with archetypal astrology as the encompassing perspective which integrates the whole.
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.
