Slideshows on Psyche, Depth, and Place:
Earthrise - Beacon of a New Worldview
Based in part on research conducted at OPUS Archives, this slideshow expands on Joseph Campbell's idea that the image of Earth rising in space over the Moon's horizon offers a mythologem for our time. Copies of this slideshow will be available for free.
Tracking Psyche in the City
I put together this slideshow after leading graduate students on a terrapsychological tour of SoMa (South of Market) in San Francisco, where we looked for recurring images and themes that could tell us about the psyche or soul of the neighborhood. Learn how to undertake similar tours where you live or work.
Ecotherapy - Healing with Nature in Mind
This update on the field of ecotherapy discusses important connections between mind and nature and their implications for mental and physical health and well-being. For more information and updates on the anthology that inspired this slideshow, visit Ecotherapyheals.com.
Deep California - Legacies of Conquest into Images of Homecoming:
After giving a brief exposition of the facts and history of California, we proceed northward along Camino Real looking at the clusters of resonant stories and metaphors on our way to the top, where we consider the questions: How can I live here gently and sustainably? How does my story fit California? What does this place need from me?
C. G. Jung - Planetary Psychologist:
In this presentation we will look at how Jung not only left us the outlines of a general psychology, but a planetary one as well: a "terrapsychology" capable of describing our relations with the nonhuman world as well as with each other.
All slideshows come in "small" (45 minutes) and "large" (2 hours) versions and can be adjusted to fit your timeframe. We can also craft a slideshow for you on a topic you wish to know more about.
