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.
