ONLINE (EUROPE-FRIENDLY MEETING TIMES) / JUNG, ALCHEMY & THE TRANSFORMATION OF CONSCIOUSNESS
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15 EVENING, THROUGH SUNDAY OCTOBER 18, 2020
In 2020 GTT began offering real-time virtual events that are as close to a GTT module experience as we can make them in an online format.
This “Virtual Module” is open to anyone interested. There will be group interaction, teaching, and experiential sessions. Everything except actual Holotropic Breathwork® sessions, since HB cannot be done virtually. To enhance the group experience for everyone, please note that you will be expected to attend all sessions of the module just as you would if it were being held live at a retreat center.
Although you may attend this Virtual Module as a stand-alone event, there is also an option for those who wish to get full module credit. In that case, you will be able to make up the Holotropic Breathwork® component in HB-only workshops that we will offer as soon as it is safe to do so. Up to two of these combined Virtual Modules + HB component can be counted toward the seven modules required for certification.
JUNG, ALCHEMY & THE TRANSFORMATION OF CONSCIOUSNESS
In this Virtual Module, we will explore the world of archetypes, dreams, myths, shadow, symbols, alchemy, individuation, and astrology. It will be a rich, creative journey into the depths of the psyche and the reality of the psychoid, through the work of Carl Jung and alchemy. Our time together will be highly experientially, to intricately support and illuminate our own transformational processes.
We will dive in through living mythic material and symbols that informed Jung and the ancient alchemists. We will also turn to the issues of current times that seek our attention — for transformation in this pregnant darkness — at individual and collective levels.
The focus of this module will include
1) An overview of Carl Jung’s seminal contributions to psychology
2) the power and significance of Jung’s own “spiritual emergency” rooted in and supported by his discovery of the ancient alchemists
3) and deep personal exploration into these alchemical processes using a variety of experiential modalities including Holotropic Breathwork®, Jung’s active imagination, writing, art, dream work, film, meditation, and movement.
It will be enriching for anyone wishing to explore their inner lives in a safe and nourishing setting, as well as those interested in bringing a Jungian perspective into their everyday lives. This will be a wonderful opportunity to have a personal, embodied experience of Jung’s most groundbreaking contributions. The event will provide the ‘alchemical vessel’ for one’s own exploration, integration, and growth.
Attendees of Monika’s Red Book module will find much new, as well as some revisited and expanded, material and practices.
While open to anyone interested, this topic is an Optional Module for anyone wishing to become a certified Holotropic Breathwork® Facilitator.
