Alchemy Matters! Presented by Robert Bosnak.
LOCATION: We host this event at the Downtown City Library (210 East 400 South, SLC) @ 7PM. Social hour before and after. Doors open at 6:15PM art and mingle.
The Art of Alchemy was not just a precursor of science. Alchemy held that all matter has an inner life. Alchemists studied their material not as object, but as subjects with whom to communicate. This is similar to our experience with dreaming. In dreams we find ourselves in an experientially real world created by imagination where everything exists in a state of constant animation. Since alchemy studies the animation of matter Jung found it a royal entry into the study of the deep embodied imagination. We know that he continued his journey through the Deep, begun in the Red Book, in his study of alchemy culminating in his magnum opus Mysterium Coniunctionis.
In this talk Jungian psychoanalyst Robert Bosnak, himself an over 40 years student of alchemy and dreaming, will explore the inner microcosm of things by way of the alchemical writings of C.G. Jung and James Hillman. He will demonstrate the profound impact alchemy could have on psychotherapists, practitioners of the arts, and upon anyone interested in creative imagination. The study of alchemy quickens the senses and makes us more alive as we derive poignant inspiration from our ancestors.
