The C.G. Jung Foundation presents
a daylong seminar led by
Saturday, March 4, 2006
This workshop traces the long trajectory of the Dionysiac mythologem from its earliest origins in ancient Greek tragedy to its contemporary enactments in catharses of the canvas, concert hall and consulting room. Neglected and dishonored for millenia, Dionysos now regularly appears to us through his wrathful dark side, with images of dismemberment, destruction and death. How do we contain the frenzied and polarized opposites of both rapture and suffering, ecstasy and anguish that follow in the wake of this raving god of the wild? Through a combination of lecture material, slides, tapes, poetry and readings, we will learn with recognition and remembering, how to avert his reprisals of rending rage, and instead, welcome and invoke the bounty and many blessings of this basically enlivening and invigorating god.
