WINTER WEATHER POLICY:
Henry Corbin (1903-1978), scholar, philosopher, theologian and mystic, was a long-time colleague of C. G. Jung at the Eranos Conferences in Switzerland. They shared a vision of the central place of the imagination in human life, and the influence of their work has been profound. Among the most important psychologists to emerge from the decades-long creative ferment of Eranos, James Hillman continued the work of Jung and Corbin in his idiosyncratic and stimulating style.
The Friday lecture will provide an introduction to Corbin’s work and outline some of the differences in style and substance that are important for understanding the ideas of these three seminal thinkers. The Saturday workshop will provide an opportunity to re-vision psychology and the place of psyche in the world. We will explore the profound importance of poetic language and the arts in psychological and spiritual transformation and empower ourselves to participate in the creative imagination that lies at the heart of human life.
*Please note: This Saturday workshop is intended for an audience well-versed in Jung.
Tom Cheetham, PhD, is the author of five books on the imagination and the significance of Henry Corbin’s work for the contemporary world. The most recent is Imaginal Love: The Meanings of Imagination in Henry Corbin and James Hillman, Spring Publications, 2015. His first volume of poetry, Boundary Violations, is due out this winter from Dos Madres Press. He is a Fellow of the Temenos Academy in London and Adjunct Professor of Human Ecology at the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine. He lectures regularly in Europe and the US.
