LECTURE: We seem to be living at the end of an era. Old structures are cracking, the moment of creative chaos is upon us, and the drama of our age has become a great question: What new principles and structures will emerge to shape our future? So much is at stake. We are facing a threshold of fundamental collective transformation that bears a striking resemblance to what takes place on the individual level in initiatory rites of passage, in near-death experiences, in spiritual crises, and in critical stages of what Jung called the individuation process. Join Richard Tarnas as he draws on depth psychology and archetypal astrology, philosophy, religion, and cultural history as we seek together with a larger context for both understanding and action. Richard Tarnas is a professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, where he founded the graduate program in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness. He also lectures on archetypal studies and depth psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, and is on the Board of Governors of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco. He is the author of The Passion of the Western Mind, a history of the Western world view widely used as a text in universities, and Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View.
