Continuing our deep psychic exploration of astrology, we turn to Uranus, the awakener. In the kriya yoga tradition, astrology is an initiated experience that allows exploration of the parameters of one's own psyche and life experience, rather than accepting inter-pretation by another. This course employs film, poetry, autobio-graphy, and music to consider the force of crisis, revolution, and chaos that shatters all complacency. The power of Uranus is sometimes described as the "lightening bolt that strikes delusion dead." Uranus shatters the comfortable delusions of every psycho-logical urge and habit as it awakens them, one by one. It tests the limits of habit, and where habit is no longer adequate to meet a psychic need, Uranus brings a jolt. It does this by bringing about conditions of strife, chaos, revolution, and potentially, greater freedom. The dark side of Uranus is that it can bring down an old regime without offering something new in its place. It becomes very important to understand the potentials of Uranus when you meet its energy in the symbolic life of the psyche. We will consider some of the key points during which Uranus impacts our life: the declaration of adulthood at 21, the mid-life crisis of the early 40s, the period proximate to retirement in the mid-60s, and the period proximate to dying in the mid-80s. Bring to class your birth time and place.

Heidi Lindemann and Michael Perry are lineage holders in the
Kriya Yoga tradition (an Indian alchemical tradition) and are authorized to initiate and teach Kriya Yoga and its related teachings. The techniques of Kriya Yoga involve a psycho-physical means of self-inquiry and are an initiated path to understanding one's own psyche in the context of the macrocosm. The Swami order is one of the oldest, continuous, living initiatory and alchemical systems extant. Heidi and Michael combine their experience to make yogic teachings accessible to western minds by use of comparative mythology, storytelling, astrology, and other symbolic systems. They are regular course leaders at the Jung Society, the Theosophical Society, and have delivered lectures on Samkhya Yoga to colleges and seminaries.

The years… when I pursued the inner images, were the most important time of my life . . . [m]y entire life consisted in elaborating what had burst forth from the unconscious and flooded me like an enigmatic stream and threatened to break me. That was the stuff and material for more than only one life. Everything later was merely the outer classification, scientific elaboration,and the integration into life. But the numinous beginning, which contained everything, was then. -C.G. Jung, 1957

In this course we launch the first phase of our group reading of The Red Book, C.G. Jung's transcribed explorations of his own unconscious through waking fantasies. Dr. Costello will set the stage for our reading by placing the work in its historical, philosophical, and theological context. We will connect central motifs in the work to the genesis of Jung's psychology, while considering their relevance to personal and collective challenges in our own time. Readers will be invited to share their own imaginative responses to Red Book narratives and images. Please prepare for the first meeting by reading Shamdasani's introduction, pp. 194-224.

It was 1912 when Carl Jung distanced himself from Freud and his theories and began to define his own. This difficult and dark pas-sage for Jung produced the outpouring of his ideas on libido and transformation (Symbols of Transformation) that would forever separate him and Freud. In the aftermath, Jung spent years of isolation undergoing his own confrontation with the unconscious as a way of experiencing and constructing the process of transfor-mation and individuation. From 1913 to 1917, this arduous process resulted in writings on the theory of psychoanalysis (1913), the psychology of dreams (1914), the transcendent function (1916), and the structure of the unconscious (1916). The last writing was a revision of an article written in1912. These works are the precursor to Volume 7, published in 1917. Concurrently, the rumblings of World War I greatly disturbed Jung. He witnessed a barbaric side of [hu]manity with no capacity to shut down the machine of destruction occurring everywhere. He realized that the only way for change to occur was for each person to change his/ her attitude in order to initiate a change in the nation. He states: If ever there was a time when self-reflection was the absolutely necessary and only right thing, it is now, in our present catastrophic epoch. Yet whoever reflects upon himself is bound to strike upon the frontiers of the unconscious, which contains what above all else he needs (Vol. 7, p. 4).

In essence, Volume 7 is the fundamental work and introduction to Jung's formulation and articulation of his theories around the concept of archetypes and the collective unconscious, the interrelationship of the ego and the unconscious, and his beginning theory of types. With each new edition of Vol. 7, Jung further refined and defined these essays into their current form. However, the original versions of his essays are deemed important as Jung offers his first tentative formulations around these foundational concepts. And thus, the editors included the original versions of (Psychoanalysis and The Eros Theory), New Paths in Psychology and The Structure of the Unconscious in the appendices.

Rosanne Shepler, LPC, LP, received her diploma in Analytical Psychology from the C. G. Jung Institute of New York in 2002. She also holds Master's degrees in Health Education and Counseling.

"Long ago," so our story begins, "lived a rich merchant who, besides possessing more treasures than any king in the world . . . . But his greatest treasure of all was his only daughter, who was called Catherine."

Each personal story has an archetypal core, a fundamental, inborn pattern residing at the center of a person's life. One such pattern governs the conscious attitudes of many women. That pattern is what analytical psychology calls the father complex, "the world is my Daddy, and he will always be there to take care of me," even if Daddy is long dead. For such women, fears about finances and money, or a veiled belief that she can't take care of herself intrude.

"Catherine and Her Destiny" informs us about what can happen when Daddy is no longer there, nor is his money or his protection. For a Catherine's own sake she strives to forget Daddy and take off on her own path. The fairy tale shows us how Catherine develops her character through doing what is necessary to earn her way in the world and to protect and provide for herself and her own wellbeing.

At the core of "Catherine and her Destiny" is the key to the secret of what one must do to "find and keep your own gold, your own authentic self."

C.G. Jung believed that beneath our conscious intelligence a deeper human intelligence is at work, an intelligence that has evolved over millions of years of human existence, and that with the evolution of human consciousness, nature has finally become conscious of itself. It has taken eons of time, this lumbering progress through the minds of reptiles, mammals, and primates, and it is still working out its purpose in the archetypes of the collective unconscious, encoded in the most ancient parts of the human brain. By granting close attention to nature's mind, Jungian analyst Anthony Stevens argues, we not only further personal wholeness but also help redress the gross imbalances of our culture, which are threatening the destruction of the earth. We will read his book, The Two Million Year Old Self and discuss, learn, speculate, and debate.

Sean Favretto, M.A., is an expressive arts psychotherapist who lives and practices in the Washington, D.C., area. He holds a graduate degree in dance/movement psychotherapy from Columbia College Chicago, and has studied at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago as well as at the Jung Society of Washington. He has worked creatively with severely and chronically mentally ill adults in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Sean enjoys combining his background in the arts, psychology, and religious studies and serves on the board of the Jung Society of Washington.

From the Back Matter: In the face of loss and absence, we must again ask what makes us feel connected to the source of aliveness. Yet, we must also understand that feeling fully alive means that we must come to fresh insight about the contrary of aliveness, which is deadness. Both aliveness and deadness are part of the same fabric of being. But how do we talk about them?

It was 1912 when Carl Jung distanced himself from Freud and his theories and began to define his own. This difficult and dark pas-sage for Jung produced the outpouring of his ideas on libido and transformation (Symbols of Transformation) that would forever separate him and Freud. In the aftermath, Jung spent years of isolation undergoing his own confrontation with the unconscious as a way of experiencing and constructing the process of transfor-mation and individuation. From 1913 to 1917, this arduous process resulted in writings on the theory of psychoanalysis (1913), the psychology of dreams (1914), the transcendent function (1916), and the structure of the unconscious (1916). The last writing was a revision of an article written in1912. These works are the precursor to Volume 7, published in 1917. Concurrently, the rumblings of World War I greatly disturbed Jung. He witnessed a barbaric side of [hu]manity with no capacity to shut down the machine of destruction occurring everywhere. He realized that the only way for change to occur was for each person to change his/ her attitude in order to initiate a change in the nation. He states: If ever there was a time when self-reflection was the absolutely necessary and only right thing, it is now, in our present catastrophic epoch. Yet whoever reflects upon himself is bound to strike upon the frontiers of the unconscious, which contains what above all else he needs (Vol. 7, p. 4).

In essence, Volume 7 is the fundamental work and introduction to Jung's formulation and articulation of his theories around the concept of archetypes and the collective unconscious, the interrelationship of the ego and the unconscious, and his beginning theory of types. With each new edition of Vol. 7, Jung further refined and defined these essays into their current form. However, the original versions of his essays are deemed important as Jung offers his first tentative formulations around these foundational concepts. And thus, the editors included the original versions of (Psychoanalysis and The Eros Theory), New Paths in Psychology and The Structure of the Unconscious in the appendices.

"I should advise you to put it all down as beautifully as you can, in some beautifully bound book." These were C.G. Jung's words to Christiana Morgan in July, 1926. They are his words to us today. Jung urges us to address ourselves to "the imaginative possibilities of our nature" (James Hillman) and to write it all down. Jung asks us to look at the images in our dreams and in our memories, to let them open doorways to the soul, to engage in imagined conversations, asking the soul what it wants. Jung encourages us to uncover our own experiences of the soul.

This two-day program will introduce the basic elements of writing to experience the soul and offer an opportunity to explore these principles more deeply. After a brief introduction to The Red Book, we will listen to a few of the dialogues that Jung had with his soul and his ensuing commentaries. We will look at how the soul has been perceived over the centuries and how we ourselves perceive it. We will then consider how we can approach the soul, in journaling, writing dialogues, finding images in our dreams, and drawing them. We will listen to short excerpts from contemporary authors about their experience of soul as we look to uncover our own experience of soul in both our inward and outward lives.

Susan Tiberghien, an American writer living in Switzerland, has published three memoirs-Looking for Gold; Circling to the Center; and Footsteps, A European Album-and most recently a book on writing, One Year to A Writing Life. She has been teaching creative writing for close to twenty years at the International Women's Writing Guild, at C.G. Jung Centers, writers conferences, graduate programs, and at the monthly Geneva Writers' Workshops. She directs the Geneva Writers'

Building on the material presented in Friday night's lecture, we will take time to enter more deeply into Jung's writings to the soul, reading a few more of the dialogues that Jung had with his soul and the subsequent commentaries. We will then imagine encountering the soul, describing the setting, and writing dialogues. In the afternoon, we will look for images from our dreams and fantasies, drawing them in mandalas, as Jung did with his Liverpool dream and with his vision of the philosopher's stone. We will examine excerpts from contemporary authors about how they experience soul, and we will discuss and write about how we experience soul in both our inward and outward lives.

Lecture attendance is not prerequisite for the workshop.

C.G. Jung believed that beneath our conscious intelligence a deeper human intelligence is at work, an intelligence that has evolved over millions of years of human existence, and that with the evolution of human consciousness, nature has finally become conscious of itself. It has taken eons of time, this lumbering progress through the minds of reptiles, mammals, and primates, and it is still working out its purpose in the archetypes of the collective unconscious, encoded in the most ancient parts of the human brain. By granting close attention to nature's mind, Jungian analyst Anthony Stevens argues, we not only further personal wholeness but also help redress the gross imbalances of our culture, which are threatening the destruction of the earth. We will read his book, The Two Million Year Old Self and discuss, learn, speculate, and debate.

Sean Favretto, M.A., is an expressive arts psychotherapist who lives and practices in the Washington, D.C., area. He holds a graduate degree in dance/movement psychotherapy from Columbia College Chicago, and has studied at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago as well as at the Jung Society of Washington. He has worked creatively with severely and chronically mentally ill adults in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Sean enjoys combining his background in the arts, psychology, and religious studies and serves on the board of the Jung Society of Washington.
