Stories can guide, heal, or mislead;
formulate meaning that helps people survive or even thrive; and give
shape to our lives. The most potent stories communicate the movement
and deep structures of our souls, and depth psychology helps us to
uncover and understand the particular power of these archetypal
characters, images, and narrative patterns. In this lecture, we will
explore how the shifting patterns seen in narratives about Demeter,
Persephone, Zeus, and Dionysus mirror the kinds of energetic flows that
can occur in us as we grow to meet the challenges of today’s rapidly
changing and disorienting times.
Discover how archetypes appear throughout our developmental process,
encountering the specific circumstances of our biology and history.
Each stage of our lives, from childhood to maturity, will be seen as
offering its own movie set. At these stages, certain archetypal
characters emerge within each of us and respond to the challenge of
playing parts that help us respond effectively to the plotline being
lived around and through us. We will present and explore images of
archetypal characters and descriptions of their stories, using a
range of individual and group experiences. We will explore the
abilities each of us has developed, or are in the process of
developing, through living archetypal stories. And we will identify
any area in our lives where a new narrative might be required to meet
the challenges we are currently facing.

Changes in the Neighborhood
Update: We are
pleased to announce that the MFAH expects the construction of the
complex housing the new parking garage to be completed in May of this year.
Once open, the garage will offer an extremely convenient parking
solution at a very reasonable price. Please bear with us for just
a few more months!
In the meantime, parking in the MFAH lot adjacent to The Jung Center is
still unavailable for use until 7pm. Additionally, due to the
commencement of road work on Montrose Boulevard, street parking
directly in front of the building is temporarily unavailable. We ask that
you arrive 5-10 minutes early for class, to ensure that you can
access parking along the streets in the neighborhood.
