Game of Thrones, Presented by Robert Antonacci, Ph.D.

The Casa - Franciscan Renewal Center

$45.00

Game of Thrones has captured the imagination of enormous numbers of people in a profound way. In this talk we will examine archetypal underpinnings of the show's characters, ones we love to hate and hate to love, within a contemporary context. Morning Session: 9:30 am - 12:00 pm ($45/35 for members) This session will introduce the show and the complex nature of the narrative. Basic Jungian concepts and definitions will be discussed, such as archetype, complex, shadow, ego, anima and animus. Afternoon Session: 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm ($45/35 for members) Broadening and deepening the show's structure and form. Jungian concepts such as the "disowned feminine" and "otherness" will be explored as important inner psychological processes which are projected onto the outer world from within the characters in the cast.

The Hag & the Anima Mundi, Presented by Joe L. McNair, Ph.D.

The Franciscan Renewal Center

$45.00

Using mythology, Grail Legend materials and Jung, this presentation give a metaphorical approach to trauma. "Once upon a time, long long ago" the Grail Legends relied heavily upon the allegorical tales and gore of the "Hag", she who induces shame and fear, sometimes known as the Hideous Damsel, Dame Ragnell, Cundrie, or the Lady on the Mule. Morning Session: 9:30 am - 12:00 pm ($45/35 for members) This session will begin with a discussion of the importance of myths and fairytales as an expression of the collective unconscious, and what this tells us about human development. Afternoon Session: 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm ($45/35 for members) Additional material is utilized in discussing the Hag as she appears in various forms. Open participation is welcome as the Hag is told through alchemical narratives and myths emboldened by the speaker's experience in working with Joseph Campbell.
