Synchronicity and the Goddess of Meaning
Gary Bobroff, MA and Cynthia Cavalli, PhD
Sunday, November 12, 2023, 4:00 - 6:00 pm PST (UTC -8)
This program will be recorded and made available publicly on our YouTube channel.
Jung's recognition of the phenomenon of synchronicity leads us towards an astoundingly deeper view of our world. To sit with the reality of a meaningful event when it occurs is to begin to be led toward a healing experience with the numinous.
In this presentation, we will explore how best to unfold synchronistic experiences, how to observe our over-rationalistic ego objections to their validity and illustrate the difference between a thinking and feeling reception of them.
Held with a view for story and symbol and an appreciation for the special power that authenticity confers, we see a world creating grace and healing; a view shared by the mystics, the alchemists, the Taoists and many indigenous cultures today.
If we can overcome the reductionistic worldview of our culture, synchronicity offers the revelation of a world in which meaning is woven into Nature.
