Jung Alchemy and the transformation of consciousness

Oct 04, 2020 to Oct 09, 2019

In this retreat, we will explore the world of archetypes, dreams, myths, shadow, symbols, alchemy, individuation, and astrology. It will be a rich, creative journey into the depths of the psyche and the reality of the psychoid, through the work of Carl Jung and alchemy. The retreat will be highly experientially, to intricately support and illuminate our own transformational processes.

Please note this retreat was initially scheduled for April 2020.

We will dive in through living mythic material and symbols that informed Jung and the ancient alchemists. We will also turn to the issues of current times that seek our attention — for transformation in this pregnant darkness — at individual and collective levels.

The focus our time together will include:

1) An overview of Carl Jung’s seminal contributions to psychology 

2) the power and significance of Jung’s own “spiritual emergency” rooted in and supported by his discovery of the ancient alchemists 

3) and deep personal exploration into these alchemical processes using a variety of experiential modalities including Holotropic Breathwork®, Jung’s active imagination, writing, art, dream work, film, meditation, and movement.

This retreat will be enriching for anyone wishing to explore their inner lives in a safe and nourishing setting, as well as those interested in bringing a Jungian perspective into their everyday lives. This will be a wonderful opportunity to have a personal, embodied experience of Jung’s most groundbreaking contributions. The retreat will provide the ‘alchemical vessel’ for one’s own exploration, integration, and growth.
