IS MODERN HUMANITY UNDERGOING A RITE OF PASSAGE?RICHARD TARNAS, Ph.D. Our time in history is pervaded by a great paradox. We are more globally aware of what is happening to our fellow human beings and to all that is living on the planet than at any other time. However, we also confront the most critical, and in some respects catastrophic, state of the Earth in human history. As Jung would suggest, the past and the future are converging with extraordinary force. Old structures are cracking, the moment of creative chaos is upon us: What new principles, what new structures will emerge to shape our future? This is much like what takes place on the individual level in initiatory rites of passage, in near-death experiences, in spiritual crises, and in critical stages of what Jung called the individuation process. Can we find grounding, an eye in the storm, from which we can engage this time of intense polarization and radical change? What is the role of "heroic" communities like Jungian associations that carry principles and perspectives running counter to the mainstream modern worldview? (2 CEUs) Learning Objectives: Following the completion of this program, participants will be able to:1. Understand the differences between and similarities of chronos (sequential time) and kairos (opportune moments in time); and2. Understand whether a new rite of passage to handle the paradoxes and complexities of contemporary life is emerging, this time on a global level. Saturday, March 1- 9:30 am – 4:30 pm UNDERSTANDING OUR MOMENT IN HISTORY: AN ARCHETYPAL ASTROLOGICAL PERSPECTIVERichard Tarnas, Ph.D. We live in a dramatic period in the history of the world, with high stakes for the planetary future. We need every available source of relevant insight into the collective and individual psychological conditions that affect this future. Archetypal astrology can serve as one of these sources, shedding clarifying light on how events and trends throughout the world at a given time are meaningfully connected—political events, social trends, the music and films, scientific discoveries, and collective psychological tendencies. When we examine the synchronistic waves of events in terms of their underlying archetypes, historical patterns that unfold cyclically through the centuries come into focus. Like paying attention to weather reports before setting out to sail on a windy day, awareness of ongoing planetary transits can help us appreciate the synchronistic events, and live both more skillfully. It can also provide a powerful lens for us to discern the deeper evolutionary currents moving through history. In this workshop, we will explore the major planetary alignments and archetypal forces currently at work that may suggest how we can develop more fully as individuals. (6 CEUs) Learning Objectives: Following the completion of this program, participants will be able to:1. Cultivate a deeper understanding of the antinomous nature of the current, historical and global conditions of our planet;2. Foster an appreciation for the power of archetypal astrology to assist in navigating these paradoxes both in our own lives and in the lives of our clients;3. Understand the manner in which Jung used astrological patterns to assist himself and his clients; the development of forgiveness, using depth psychological principles;4. Recognize specific planetary patterns that have historically signified archetypal patterns;5. Demonstrate greater familiarity with planetary alignments as metaphoric guides; and6. Understand the resistance that clinicians experience on a professional level, and clients on a personal level, to the archetypal astrological perspective.
