Soul Masks and Masking Tapes: Language, Image, and the Soul

This set includes the following two lectures:

  1. Soul Masks: Image and the Soul – Psyche is spirit; person is representation. Life’s task is finding a way to represent spirit in outer form. The psychological problem is how to be congruent with spirit and “mask.”
  2. Masking Tapes: Language and the Soul – Psyche “speaks”, of course, through another mask, the mask of language. How language itself becomes the mask of psyche is a fascinating journey into nothing less than “style” itself.
