Heroes, Heras and Dorothy’s Epic Journey to Oz, The Path of Individuation: Presentation & Conversation

  • First Congregational Church 1128 Pine Street Boulder, CO, 80302 United States (map)

This presentation is centered around Jung’s concept of “Individuation,” also called “Soul Evolution.” The corresponding mythic term for this process is known as “The Hero’s Journey.” We will 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.
