In this presentation we will seek reconnect with our capacity to understand the language of the soul. Our vehicle for this process will be a film, Gulliver’s Travels (2015), staring Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen. We will approach clips of the film on several levels. One is to track the elements in the film as an example of how they are carried along by the individuation process. But more importantly, we will seek to wake up and reclaim our innate capacity to understand mythically, that is, the capacity to engage life through vision logic, the souls logic. Lastly, we may discover that psychological understanding depends, not on facts, but on us.
