Bob Walter – Mythology, Health, and Healing

Topic: In this talk we will explore the relationship between mythology and health: how the visceral beliefs—the myths—of both patient and physician interact either to positively impact or impede, not only their interpersonal relationship, but more importantly, the healing process itself.

We will investigate some of the biological bases for such mythic understandings, and scrutinize the ways in which technological development, globalization, and the ubiquity of mass media are continually redefining and reshaping our understanding of what it means to be “healthy.”

Finally, we will diagnose, so to say, the well-being of the body politic by examining how our contemporary mythos—whether consciously articulated or unacknowledged—fails to inform our lives with the art of living by its insistent denial of the fact of death and the inevitability of our dying.

Presenter Bob Walter: In 1979 Bob “retired” from the professional theater and became editorial director of Joseph Campbell’s Historical Atlas of World Mythology. When Campbell died (1987), Bob, his literary executor, completed portions of his Atlas and oversaw the posthumous publication of Volume I (two books) and Volume II (three). In 1991, Jean Erdman Campbell and Bob created the Joseph Campbell Foundation (JCF), and he was named its executive director. He continues as executive editor of the Collected Works of Joseph Campbell to guide the publication of Campbell’s oeuvre in print, audio, and video. He was appointed JCF president in 1998. He has presented papers, seminars, and/or workshops on four continents, and has served since 2002 as a Trustee of the Tamalpais Union High School District (Marin County, California).

Michael Meade – Why the World Doesn’t End

Topic: Behind the serious crises occurring in both culture and nature there is a crisis of meaning and a loss of the sense of the world as a place of ongoing creation.
When “the End” seems near, how people imagine the world becomes more important; how people imagine humanity becomes of the utmost importance. In “dark times” the issue becomes living an authentic life.

Presenter: Michael Meade is one of the greatest depth psychological teachers of our time, and his story telling ability is magical and profound. Mr. Meade has studied myth, anthropology, history of religion, and cross-cultural rituals for over 35 years. His interpretations of ancient myths and symbols are highly relevant to current culture. He has an unusual ability to distill and synthesize these disciplines, tapping into ancestral sources of wisdom, while connecting them to the stories of people today. He is an author, scholar, mythologist and storyteller and founder of a non-profit organization Mosaic Multicultural Foundation.

Robert Waggoner – Lucid Dreaming

Description: On the surface, lucid dreaming seems deceptively simple – a paradoxical state in which you know you are dreaming, while you are dreaming. There, you can fly through space, create fire breathing dragons, and cast spells like Harry Potter, all in the safety of your subconscious mind. Scientifically validated for thirty years, recent neuroscientists have deemed lucid dreaming a “hybrid state of consciousness,” since the dreaming brain and portions of the waking/conscious brain show simultaneous activation. Yet some experienced lucid dreamers, like our presenter, will argue that lucid dreaming allows a person to interact directly with one’s inner Self. Moreover, these interactions meet the criteria that Carl Jung established to show the existence of an “inner awareness.”

Presenter: Robert Waggoner is an expert on lucid dreaming, and author of the acclaimed book, Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self, a past President of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD). He co-edits the free online magazine, The Lucid Dream Exchange, and frequently speaks on lucid dreaming at colleges and conferences worldwide.

Robert Romanyshyn – Inner Journeys in the Outer World

Description: For thousands of years, the Antarctic has been a place in the collective imagination as well as a geographical location. Just as explorers have traveled to those regions, poets and writers have explored the polar regions of the soul. Dr. Robert Romanyshyn traveled to the Antarctic, connecting to a dream he had over thirty years ago about a journey to the polar regions of the Earth.

This exciting Jung Platform launch lecture will explore the intertwining of psyche and nature in the context of the ecological crisis of the melting polar ice. After reviewing how Carl Jung’s description of the psychoid nature of the archetype – the non-psychic aspect of the archetype seen as a bridge to matter in general – Dr. Romanyshyn will draw on a series of images from this journey that have been set to music. They will show how the body as an aesthetic response to the world is the place where psyche becomes nature and nature becomes psyche.

Presenter: Robert Romanyshyn, Ph.D., is an Affiliate Member of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts and a Senior Core Faculty Member in the Clinical and Depth Psychotherapy Programs at Pacifica Graduate Institute. He has authored six books, has contributed chapters to numerous edited volumes, and published essays and reviews in many professional journals.

Michael Meade – The Light Inside Dark Times

Description: Whether it be the fear of financial crisis or the uncertainties of climate change, the world has a more fearful and uncertain place. Yet, soul often awakens in the darkest hours as something deeper and wiser stirs within us.
The soul is the light hidden inside the dark that secretly holds things together within each of us and within the world. Often when all seems lost, the things that are most essentially ours can be found again.

Presenter: Michael Meade is one of the greatest depth psychological teachers of our time, and his story telling ability is magical and profound. Mr. Meade has studied myth, anthropology, history of religion, and cross-cultural rituals for over 35 years. His interpretations of ancient myths and symbols are highly relevant to current culture.

Genpo Merzel – An official Introduction to Big Mind as Western Zen

Ken Wilber has described Genpo Merzel’s Big Mind Process as “arguably the most important and original discovery in the last two centuries of Buddhism.” Big Mind is rooted in Jungian Psychology and in Eastern Zen.

Description: The mind is a wonderful thing, capable of brilliant thought and creativity, as well as bringing misery and suffering. How can we understand and work with it? How can we channel this great gift and resource to bring love and joy to our lives and relationships? In this hour long introduction, Zen Master Genpo Merzel will work with us to explore and directly experience how our minds can become our greatest friend and ally.

Presenter: Dennis Genpo Merzel is a revolutionary in the tradition of the old Zen Masters who so embodied Buddhist teaching that they were able to revitalize and transform it for their own day and age. As Buddhism moved from India to China to Japan and other Asian cultures, it found unique expression in each culture that made its fundamental teachings resonate for a new time and place. Genpo Roshi is working to transmit the essence of the Buddha’s teachings in a way that is readily accessible to Westerners and relevant to our everyday life.

Dennis Merzel is an American Zen and spirituality teacher, also known as Genpo Merzel Roshi. He was a student and is heir of the Japanese-born Zen teacher Taizan Maezumi. Merzel obtained a Master’s degree in educational administration from the University of Southern California and went on to become a school teacher.
