C.G. Jung saw his psychological work as similar to that of the solitary alchemist, striving both to liberate spirit from matter and to imbue the inert matter with spirit, a cyclical process in which the transformative experience of individuation comes to life. In this lecture, Lara Newton will present and explore the psychological dimensions that alchemical imagery opens to us. She will discuss the alchemical process and some of the major operations from a depth psychological perspective, always recognizing that the container for this process is our human experience of the ever-evolving movement between matter and spirit. Throughout the presentation, dreams will be used to amplify and elucidate the alchemical images and process.
