Harvard-educated cultural historian and California Institute of Integral Studies professor of philosophy and psychology Dr. Richard Tarnas will speak on the topic of “Weathering the Storm in Our Unprecedented Times” during a live Zoom event airing Friday, Jan. 29, 7-9 p.m.
Presented by the C.G. Jung Society of Sarasota—a nonprofit organization established in 1995 to encourage personal growth and raise the consciousness of individuals of all ages by offering lectures, workshops, and small group meetings inspired by the work of Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung—the online presentation is open to the public, will include a question and answer period, and will also premiere an episode of Changing of the Gods, a 10-part documentary series to be released in spring 2021 based on Tarnas’ 2006 book Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View.
In his discussion, Tarnas will provide a state-of-the-world report referencing the Covid-19 pandemic, climate crisis, and societal upheaval using an archetypal astrological perspective. Drawing on the work of Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Jung, Tarnas will offer context for extraordinary recent events by examining the rare convergence of planetary alignments involving Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto, explaining what archetypal powers are now in motion, and sharing historical precedents. Tickets are $15 for Jung Society members and $25 for nonmembers. Advance online registration is required.
The Jung Society of Sarasota will also present a Jan. 30 workshop, led by Tarnas via Zoom, titled “Synchronicity and Its Implications” from 1-5 p.m. More information and registration is available here.
