The Role of the Divine Feminine in the Transformation of Consciousness

Saturday March 18, 2017; 9:30AM - 1:30PM
The C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco

pele1 Faculty: Faculty: Carolyn Bray, PhD; Naomi Ruth Lowinsky, PhD; D. Steven Nouriani, PhD, MFT Searching for dynamic feminine images, Carolyn Bray, PhD, was drawn to Hawaiian goddess myths and their reflections of the multi-faceted feminine psyche, which is ancient, contemporary, and eternal. Dr. Bray will introduce participants to seven Hawaiian female deities, and will lead an active imagination into the Circle of Hawaiian Goddesses. A dream led Naomi Ruth Lowinsky, PhD, to write the Faust Woman Poems, about the wild days of Women’s Liberation, when the Great Goddess leapt into women’s imaginations. Where is the Goddess now, when the news bombards us with stories of rape and misogyny and Her body— our earth—is threatened? D. Steven Nouriani, PhD, MFT, will explore the emergence of the Divine Feminine archetype, when manifested as Isis, Mary, Black Madonna and Mary Magdalene, and its various constellations especially during times of crisis, fragmentation, destruction, creation and transformation of consciousness. Examples from clinical material and world events will be discussed. headshot_CarolynBCarolyn H. Bray, PhD is a Jungian psychoanalyst, clinical psychologist, and an analyst member of the C.G.
