Transformations of the Judeo-Christian God Image

in the Early Common Era and the CollectivePsyche

The Seminar will examine depth psychological aspects of events and personalities
at the intersection of classical Judaism with the birth of the Christian Movement,
all under a Roman military occupation. The emphasis will be upon the ways that collective myths lose their life-organizing power and are replaced or augmented by a new myth, in this instance, by the emergence of a new god-image, or a new manifestation of the Self, in the collective psyche.

Date:    Friday, April 15th, 2011

   The Academy House (Lower Level)
            1420 Locust Street
            Philadelphia, PA 19102

Time:   1:00pm-5:00pm (Registration & Light Lunch at 12:30)

Phone: 215-735-9096 (Academy House) or 215-450-9941 (Marionís cell)

Learning Objectives: Upon Completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the historical setting in Mediterranean civilization at the beginning of the Common Era when revolutionary developments in the collective Western psyche were underway.

  2. Learn how to link elements of the historical setting with a Jungian psychological model in order to understand better the psychodynamics of impending transformations in the collective psyche of the era.

  3. Examine the transformative energies in play at the time of our focus in terms of a new manifestation of the Self in collective consciousness, a psychodrama played out on the sociopolitical stage in the figure of Jesus as the Son of Man.

  4. Learn to unwrap the symbolic imagery in which these extraordinary events are contained, for example, in some of the surviving religious texts of the early Common Era.
