Event description

Description

This conference unveils to the public for the very first time a remarkable work of art and architecture, the Tower on the Marsh, nestled along the Parker river in Newburyport, Massachusetts. Designed and built by Jungian Analyst Christiana Morgan from the 1930’s onwards this tower dwelling is a unique work of art, that embodies the understandings that Christiana reached through her encounter with Jung and the unfolding of her visions. Through rare archival footage as well as a more recent documentary by her grand-daughter Hilary Morgan, attendees will be privy to the inner spaces and unique artistic language expressed within and through-out this building, which is a tribute to a feminine vision. The morning session will introduce the audience to Christiana, establish her important role in analytic psychology and her contributions to the understanding of the feminine. Participants will be guided through the tower through film footage and its building, history and sense of place will be discussed. The afternoon will be focused on amplifications of the motifs and metaphors from a pair of vibrant stained glass windows that grace the meditation room and represent the arc of her visions. This focus reflects the urgent mission at the heart of the conference which is to preserve and celebrate the legacy of Christiana Morgan by raising funds to save these windows which are in urgent need of conservation.

The Jungian analysts presenting at this event will be:

Michael Vannoy Adams, Michael Conforti, Beth Darlington, Ilona Melker, Patricia Llosa, Bruce Parent, Ami Ronnberg (Curator, ARAS) & Sylvester Wojtkowski

with special presentations by film-maker Hilary Morgan and astrologer Eileen McCabe

This event will be of particular interest to those interested in Jungian psychology and history, the feminine, sacred art, sacred space and the history of American Psychology.

If you are interested but unable to participate, please consider donating your attendance fee or whatever you can contribute to save the work of this remarkable and unsung female artist and psychoanalyst.
