Announcing a new Meetup for NCGR San Francisco Bay Area Astrology Group!

What: THE COMIC GENIUS: AN ARCHETYPAL PERSPECTIVE - ALL DAY WORKSHOP WITH RICK TARNAS

When: Saturday, September 18, 2010 10:30 AM - 5:30 PM

Where: Fort Mason
Marina Blvd & Buchanan St Building C, Room 370
San Francisco, CA 94123

This workshop is based on a four-day graduate seminar that Tarnas and John Cleese taught together last year at CIIS. We will explore the nature of comedic creativity from several overlapping approaches – depth psychology, cultural history, biography, politics – with archetypal astrology as the encompassing perspective which integrates all the rest. Using natal and transit analysis, we will consider major figures in the history of modern comedy from Chaplin and the Marx Brothers through Mike Nichols and Elaine May, Peter Sellers, and Woody Allen to Monty Python, Lily Tomlin, Robin Williams, and Stephen Colbert. Brief clips of individual performances will be viewed as a basis for the analysis. A major focus will be on understanding how the different planetary archetypes and combinations distinctively shape comedy and reflect specific elements in comic creativity. Another topic will be the powerful political and social influence that comedy has had in the recent past, such as during the 2006 and 2008 election campaigns in the U.S.


Rick Tarnas is a professor of philosophy and cultural history at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, where he founded the graduate program in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness. He also frequently lectures on archetypal studies and depth psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara. He is the author of Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View, which received the Book of the Year Prize from the Scientific and Medical Network in the UK. He is also the author of Prometheus the Awakener, a monograph, and The Passion of the Western Mind, a history of the Western world view from the ancient Greek to the postmodern which became both a best seller and a required text in many universities.
