"We must be able to let things happen in the psyche". C.G. Jung
"Imagination is more important than knowledge". Albert Einstein
Soul is summoning us. In this lecture, we will first consider how both soul and imagination were viewed over the centuries with excerpts from Plato, Ibn Arabi, Meister Eckhart, Henri Corbin, and C.G. Jung. It is Corbin who writes that the kingdom of the soul is an “interworld” between matter and spirit, between the visible and the invisible. We will look at the way Jung developed the practice of active imagination during his years of confronting the unconscious (1913-1929), with excerpts from The Red Book. How can we practice our own active imaginations? We will close in examining the ways in which the imaginal informs our lives and rekindles our souls.
