Kimmel (Lecture): The Grail Wound
The thirteenth century Grail Legend of Parzival by Wolfram von Eschenbach tells of a young knight's quest to reunite with the Fisher King and heal his wound. It stands as a powerful Western metaphor for men's transcendence of narcissism, entrapment in the mother complex, and depression. Parzival's trial mirrors contemporary man's encounter with the shadow that wounds his grandiosity. Deeper truths are revealed that expose the shame he must endure to heal his heart, learn to love, and become a man both humble and resilient.

These rich themes are drawn from Ken's book, Eros and the Shattering Gaze: Transcending Narcissism, that address the struggles of these men and the women who have loved and been wounded by them. The author describes a transcendent image of compassion that emerges from his clinical work with a man severed from his feelings and relationships, resolving the split between his erotic needs for self-satisfaction, and desire for the Belovedthat trace of the Divine in the other.

Note: The book release for Ken Kimmel's new book will be held Friday evening, immediately following the lecture
