...Since money is an archetypal psychic reality, it will always be inherently problematic because psychic realities are complex, complicated…. Money is devilishly divine.
— James Hillman

Presented by Dr Suzanne Cremen

Who among us does not think (or fret) about money? Yet money is one of the most neglected issues psychologically. Drawing on the writing and experiences of CG Jung, Sigmund Freud, James Hillman, Thomas Moore and others, this lecture explores various fascinating depth psychological and mythological perspectives into the nature of money.

Money is not just a rational medium of exchange. It can fill us with compelling desire, anxiety, envy and greed. In this lecture Suzanne Cremen will discuss the paradoxical nature of money, as both a motivator and a complex. At the core of our various money complexes - to hoard, to posture, to gift, to consume - bubble the energies of various archetypes. We will consider how money, like sex, serves as a conduit of the imagination and a main projection carrier for the soul.
