psyche, nature & cosmos:
re-imagining inner & outer worlds

presented by professors glen slater & Safron rossi (pacifica graduate institute, USA)

What returns a sense of soul to the world? This seminar-retreat weekend in the magnificent Dandenong Ranges of Victoria engages this question. We will explore perspectives and ideas that revitalize the connection between inner life, the patterns of the earth and the rhythms of the universe. The fields of depth psychology, ecopsychology, mythology and cosmology will provide our maps of exploration and paths of inspiration.

What people are saying about Life Artistry events:

"There is a lot of material floating about these days around spirituality, psychology and the soul. But what made this weekend seminar unique for me was the rigour, scholarship and lived soulfulness of each of the presenters. The content was trustworthy and had a depth I could sink into. This was a beautiful, enriching and nourishing experience for me. I have come away with a new sensibility or perspective with which to engage my psychic life. Thank you for creating a space for such a quality exchange."

Valuing the wellspring of the imagination, depth psychology calls attention to the importance of what lies below the surface of conscious awareness. These unconscious dimensions of psychic reality are revealed in the literature, images and art of all cultures, as well as in the dreams, symptoms, and mythology of individuals and communities.
