A one-day Practical Interactive Workshop - led by Ireland’s leading Jungian Psychologist Jasbinder Garnermann
Throughout our evolutionary history we have felt the need to renew our vows of life – to plunge back into the source of vitality and to intensify our connection to reality. From the cave paintings of Paleolithic times to the great Teachers who lit the path to Enlightenment, our most sacred rituals have sought to provide an experience of the archetypes of existence in fresh and enhanced ways.
As we grow apart from our true self, every aspect of our lives becomes jaded. Many factors contribute to this self-alienation. Our standardized culture measures success with external criteria, and there is very little credence given to our inner lives. This impoverishment compels us to seek false highs and sensationalism to compensate for the miasma of hyperreality, the blurred edges of fake utopianism.
This workshop will cover the following:
The banalization of the sacred: Like Midas we’ve longed for the power to turn everything we touch into gold, not realizing that we've lost everything living in the process.
The deal with the devil: We feel we’re entitled to all the prizes but without any of the work. The secret of eternal youth is not the banality of botox but the realization of the Self.
The collective and individual tipping point – Where our greed has become unsustainable and our psyches are in revolt.
The death of the known world – Identity loss, grief and transition, the finality of endings and birth-pangs of the new. Shedding the skin.
Noah’s Ark – Building the container for the process of transformation. What are the instructions that we are receiving from the Self.
Our wounds are at the level of ego-consciousness: Having the absolute certainty of the Self as our true north, we penetrate through layer upon layer of the psyche, leaving behind the complexes, confusion, fear and sadness of our conscious and unconscious wounds.
Washing of the wounds and renewal from the substratum – When we engage with this deepest of purposes, deep calls to deep, and we resonate in harmony with the bliss of divine design.
