Jung, Alchemy and the Tree of Life – Through a BodySoul Lens

Eva Rider
February 7-8, 2014

This workshop explores the relationship between Jung’s Alchemical Psychology and the Hermetic Tree of Life through the body-soul.


We will delve into the experience of “backing into the tree” for a deeper understanding of this profound path to consciousness. The study of alchemy as elucidated by this ancient glyph brings a deepening understanding to Jung’s concepts of archetype, image and symbol, bridging the collective and the personal Psyche and reflecting the Soul’s initiatory journey. When circuits OANDA between the archetypal, imaginal and physical realms are open, our senses become guides on a journey which reveal paths leading towards individuation or wholeness. As we enter into liminal space between the worlds, quickening the cosmic dance between force and form, above and below, masculine and feminine, macrocosm and microcosm, alpha and omega; we evoke a synthesis wherein the dancer and the dance become one.
