Tarnas, Richard – Psyche & Cosmos in the 21st Century

The history of depth psychology, from psychoanalysis to Jungian, archetypal, and transpersonal psychology, has brought a great expansion and deepening of our understanding of the unconscious psyche, until it has reached the cosmic anima mundi itself, the soul of the world. This expansion receives an extraordinary new dimension with astrology’s discernment of a profound correlation between planetary positions and the archetypal dynamics of human experience, providing invaluable insight into both the timing and character of psychological conditions and into the patterns of history itself. This lecture will explore the great psychological value of astrology, which Stanislav Grof has called “a Rosetta Stone of the human psyche.”
