Tracking the Flow of Archetypes in Your Life

Stories can guide, heal, or mislead; formulate meaning that helps people survive or even thrive; and give shape to our lives. The most potent stories communicate the movement and deep structures of our souls, and depth psychology helps us to uncover and understand the particular power of these archetypal characters, images, and narrative patterns. In this lecture, we will explore how the shifting patterns seen in narratives about Demeter, Persephone, Zeus, and Dionysus mirror the kinds of energetic flows that can occur in us as we grow to meet the challenges of today’s rapidly changing and disorienting times.

Discover how archetypes appear throughout our developmental process, encountering the specific circumstances of our biology and history. Each stage of our lives, from childhood to maturity, will be seen as offering its own movie set. At these stages, certain archetypal characters emerge within each of us and respond to the challenge of playing parts that help us respond effectively to the plotline being lived around and through us. We will present and explore images of archetypal characters and descriptions of their stories, using a range of individual and group experiences. We will explore the abilities each of us has developed, or are in the process of developing, through living archetypal stories. And we will identify any area in our lives where a new narrative might be required to meet the challenges we are currently facing.

Parking Changes in the Neighborhood

Update: We are pleased to announce that the MFAH expects the construction of the complex housing the new parking garage to be completed in May of this year.  Once open, the garage will offer an extremely convenient parking solution at a very reasonable price.  Please bear with us for just a few more months!

In the meantime, parking in the MFAH lot adjacent to The Jung Center is still unavailable for use until 7pm.  Additionally, due to the commencement of road work on Montrose Boulevard, street parking directly in front of the building is temporarily unavailable.  We ask that you arrive 5-10 minutes early for class, to ensure that you can access parking along the streets in the neighborhood.
