Over the last three decades of his life, C.G. Jung focused much of his energy on the study of alchemy. He found in alchemy a metaphor for the processes of psychoanalysis and of individuation, as it symbolically represents the magnum opus of a life's work. In our Friday evening lecture, we will survey a brief history of alchemy with an emphasis on Western alchemy and explore the rich symbology and psychological meaning of the typical stages of the alchemical process.

On Saturday we will take a deeper dive into the imaginal realm of alchemy, exploring various operations and the stages of the work, their purpose and significance. Through exploring visual imagery, discussion, active imagination and creative expression, we will learn how the language and symbols of the alchemical process may enrich and inform our own life's work, both in the analytical container and in the world at large. While paper and expressive materials will be provided, attendees are encouraged to bring their personal journal if they prefer.
