A Kairos Moment in an Archetypal Cosmos
Our civilization, and indeed the Earth community itself, seems to be facing a threshold of fundamental transformation that bears a striking resemblance to what takes place on the individual level in initiatory rites of passage, near-death experiences, spiritual crises, and critical stages of what Jung called the individuation process. Can we find a place of equilibrium, an eye in the storm, from which we can engage this time of intense polarization and radical change? And in such an era of transition, what is the role of “heroic” communities, such as Jungian associations, which carry principles and perspectives that run counter to the mainstream modern world view? To help us navigate this threshold of transformation, we need multiple perspectives and sources of insight. In this talk Richard Tarnas will draw on depth psychology and archetypal astrology, philosophy, religion, and cultural history to glimpse a larger context for both understanding and action.
