My Personal Therapist: The Dream Series ... The Great Mother
The Great Mother archetype asks us to consider our relationship to trust, abundance, imagination, and creativity. While we often associate "mother" with our experience of our biological mother, this archetype goes much deeper than that dynamic, including the destructive and devouring mother, as represented in the goddess Kali.
The Dream Series explores nine common Jungian archetypes that often appear not only in our dream life but in our external circumstances as well. Building on material covered in the first eight courses, this class is devoted solely to The Great Mother, in both its conscious and unconscious expressions in our lives. We explore how to work constructively with our life-giving, destructive, and "good enough" mothering energies.
This installment in The Dream Series reveals examples of The Great Mother in art and culture. Additionally, the lesson concludes with a guided meditation/active imagination so that you might come into more meaningful dialogue with your primal, universal mother.
