Description

What are the issues that arise when the western male is confronted by the unconscious? What occurs when masculine consciousness encounters the feminine? What happens when a weak ego experiences the unconscious? These questions will frame our afternoon workshop of male psychology in relation to the feminine, creativity, and intimacy in human relationships. Through story and image of men’s interactions with siren, mermaid, and other female images of Mercurius, we will examine the nature of the encounter with these “foreign objects”: the allure, the projections, the dangers and pitfalls, and the potential of graces bestowed.
