Balancing your Checkbook: Spirituality and Money
This lecture will explore the psychology of money, approaching it as symbol, psychic energy, complex, Shadow.

Friday, 28 May


Peter Ammann, Dr. phil.
Rock Art and Psyche: Rock paintings, Hunting and the Emergence of Directed Consciousness


Maria Grazia Calzà, PhD
Over-Flowing: Women’s Mysticism and Imagination
To Jung our imagination is the door to divinity: it serves as a symbolic intermediary allowing for the imaging of the imageless divine. Images allow mystics to stand in relationship to the transcendent. The numinous images of this “Imaginative Presence” over-flowed medieval mystic women’s consciousness and transmuted it in a substantive way that was grounded in the body. They envisioned Jesus as an “incarnational form” of divinity (Self) that was feminine in nature. He was seen as a “continuum with” rather than as an “opposition to” their ordinary feminine experience of embodiment.
