Opening with a discussion of "The Night Sea Journey," regarded by C.G. Jung and C.A. Meier as the overarching archetype of initiation, this lecture will explore one ancient's experience of this process of regression, ego death, incubation, and soulful restoration. Plutarch's account of Timarchus' visit to The Oracle of Trophonius will be amplified and related to central elements of the progenitor of all mystery religions, the Eleusinian Mysteries.
