MODULE 3 OF THE 2 YEAR CONTEMPLATIVE STUDIES PROGRAM
The global pandemic and social justice movement of 2020 was foretold by astrologers and ancient wisdom cultures as a time of great transition, involving both a death and rebirth of epic proportions and ushering in a historic new paradigm.
Each of us has a role to play in the great transition, for dormant in us is a nascent hero or heroine who will rise to face the global crisis and convert it into an opportunity for personal growth and social transformation.
Modern materialistic culture has lost its orienting myths, heroes, rites or passage and sacred rituals that for millennia were essential in helping human beings optimally evolve to become agents of change for their tribes and society.
In this course we will reconnect with the mythic dimension of life following in the footsteps of visionary mythologist Joseph Campbell and depth psychologist Carl Jung. We will review and converge Campbell’s 12-stage model of the Hero’s Journey, Jung’s notions of the archetypes, shadow and process of individuation and the Tibetan Buddhist science of consciously reversing the death-rebirth process during our visualization practice.
Ultimately we aim to empower the rewriting of a new, more heroic narrative that alchemically transforms our ordinary human trials and traumas into a life-bestowing wisdom for others.
Now is the time to leave the safety of home, confront the shadow, slay our demons, find buried treasure, and return home with elixir.
