The Analytical Psychology Club presents
The God(-dess) Behind the Curtain
Presented by Chris Miller, M.A.
Jung was the first to admit the difficulty of discussing synchronistic phenomena without positing an “organizer” behind them, i.e., God. Professor Susan Rowland argues that this “organizer” is best characterized not as God but as “goddess consciousness.” Referencing actual synchronistic experiences, this talk will look more closely at Rowland’s argument, including her assertion that Jung himself supported the “goddess” connection in his writings on synchronicity.
Chris Miller, M.A., is currently completing his doctoral dissertation at Pacifica Graduate Institute, where he is a student in the Mythological Studies Program. His previous presentations include: Michael Jackson: Puer in the Mirror and Trickster Remakes This World: Jung, Hyde, and Eminem.Pre-registration (recommended) until 5:00pm of the lecture day for evening lectures; or Friday, 5:00pm for week-end workshops.
