Terry Gibson, Ph.D. - The Anima Mundi and Repair of the World Tree
C.G. Jung Society, Seattle Presents:

Lecture: Friday, November 8th

Terry Gibson, Ph.D. - The Anima Mundi and Repair of the World Tree

In Carl Jung's famous commentary The Philosophical Tree, he reflected on a patient-generated series of tree drawings by persons in deep engagement with the depth psyche. Within that rich canon of therapeutically-generated images Jung found a whole healing cosmology, a cosmology that goes all the way back to Plato and through Plato to our shamanic cave origins. The tree is a living imago of Plato's ancient world soul. Jung explitizes the connection of tree, symbol, and soul. The ancients called this Uber-earth spirit the Anima Mundi, the spirit of the world, one of the oldest consistent psycho-spiritual ideas in the west.

The earth is pure psycho-spiritual space. This notion about the primary vitalism that underlies all sentient experience on the planet probably is as old as the Paleolithic cave sanctuaries, but certainly as old as Plato. It is a notion that the planet is alive, that she is Mother, Breast, and Home to us all. The Tree stands as an essential demotic of Soul.

This seminar seeks to frame Jungian psychology as one of many synchronistically appearing recent disciplines that recalls this Anima Mundi and calls us to Her service. It asks what our chaotic, contemptuous politics would look like, what our ailing planet might heal, what our vacuous culture and collectively empty spiritualties might manifest in Her renewing, transformative embrace.

Learning Objectives:

1) How does depth psychology reconnect us with the Anima Mundi and her ancient shamanic, mystical, and contemplative methodologies of psycho-spiritual deepening and healing?

2) How does depth psychology create safe containers within which to locate and "voice" the Anima Mundi?

3) How does depth therapy and the Anima Mundi open us up to our destinies - both personal and collective?

4) How might a holistic reconnection with the Anima Mundi help heal our tattered planetary politics?
