Jung Association of Western Massachusetts presents:
Erica Lorentz: Introduction to Alchemical Symbols of Transformation
Friday, March 6, 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Seelye Hall, Room 201, Smith College
We will explore some processes and symbols in alchemy. This ancient discipline sought to transform our inner chaos/prima materia into the gold of psychological and spiritual insight. At the end of the Red Book, Jung discovered that the rich symbolic system of the alchemists described his own experiential method of active imagination and his personal and professional experience of individuation. Alchemical prints and film clips will illustrate the relevance of these symbols today.
