Introduction to Alchemical Symbols of Transformation

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.

Listening to our inner stories

Dreams are inner teaching stories. They are personal and sacred and guide us to what our unconscious needs us to know and integrate. Each dream is perfect and only needs our honest devotion to decipher its message. The facilitator and group will support you as you enter your dream world and engage with the dreamscape. Meaning emerges as we allow ourselves to experience the symbolic language of the imaginal realm. We will respectfully support each person’s unique story without projection and interpretation. No prior experience is necessary.

The facilitator will support the dreamer to enter their dream through movement, art, and writing to engage with the dreamscape.
