Using active imagination to bring together ancient archetypes of justice,
law integrated with spirit and matter, in order to reveal new potentials
for democracy in the U.S.


In this workshop we will look at the current state of the U.S. political
economy through the lens of the Kemetic-Egyptian Myth of Maat,
an archetype of justice, judgment and orderly judicial proceedings.
The myth offers the example of spirit and matter integrated in law,
psyche and the political economy. We will use this myth and its
teachings to interrogate, the historiography of U.S. civil rights
legislation and constitutional jurisprudence, and the intent of
voting rights legislative initiatives in the “For the Peoples’ Act” and
the “John Lewis Act.” We then define Jung’s concepts of active
imagination to conjure images and construct ideas of the good
society. We will imagine together core elements of the good society,
multicultural democracy; and the psychological resistances that
undermine the architecture of the vision and its construction in the
U.S. political economy. Where are changes and reforms needed
in the individual and collective psyche and cultural institutions?
