The Uroboros: Nature and Human Nature with Bette Joram PhD (intro)
In this Friday evening Jungian lecture there will be an overview of the historical and universal symbol. We will enquire into its presence in ancient cultures as well as in western alchemy.

Uroboric questioning: What meaning does the Uroboros have for us in these times? The Uroboros, depicted as a dragon or a serpent devouring its own tail, stands for the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end of all things. Spirit and matter, masculine and feminine, poison and panacea, the opposites unite in this ancient symbol of the opus circulatorium.

This workhop stands on its own or serves as an introductory lecture to a Saturday workshop (register separately for Saturday Feb. 11 workshop).

In the Saturday workshop we will look in greater depth at the developmental psychological implications of the Uroboros. We will address it from the perspective of other theoretical orientations as a significant state in the narcissistic personality when it is arrested and again when the uroboric state is essential in the process of transformation and individuation. (More details are listed on Saturday workshop registration page.)

Bette R. Joram is a psychotherapist in private practice in Seattle, Washington, and an adjunct faculty member of Antioch University Seattle. She received her Ph.D. from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2005. This subject matter is drawn from her doctoral dissertation, Experientia Testi Est, a hermeneutic study of transformation and change based on the illumined alchemical manuscript, Les Vaisseaux D'Hermes. The image of the Uroboros figures significantly in this work.

Open to the public. Friday presentation offers 2.0 CEUs for mental health professionals. Saturday workshop offere 4.0 CEUs. The cost to receive a certificate is as follows: 6 units for Friday lecture and Saturday workshop $15; $10 for 2 units on Friday; $10 for 4 units on Saturday.
