Heroes, Heras and Dorothy’s Epic Journey to Oz
Friday, November 1st 7-9 PM
Presentation & Discussion by Sharon Coggan
Jung’s concept of “Individuation” is also sometimes called “Soul Evolution.” The corresponding mythic term for this process is known as “The Hero’s Journey.” We will address this concept, note the parallels to it in alchemy, the differences between the masculine and feminine models of the journey (Hero and Hera) and unpack the symbolism in some of the mythic versions of the tale. Remember that in the story of Dorothy’s journey to Oz, we find out in the end that this was all a dream! So we will be doing dream analysis of this epic, grand Big Dream as well.
