James Hillman is the father of Archetypal Psychology. This Program focuses on Alchemy and Psychology and uses metaphors derived from ancient alchemy to elucidate deep structures in the creative imagination. Creative processes are not random. By studying alchemical psychology we come to understand ourselves and other humans in surprising ways that frequently diverge sharply from the habitual understandings we have unconsciously absorbed from the cultures in which we were raised. These new awarenesses can engender unexpected new vitality and wonder.
Running Time: 10 hours 6 minutes
I heard James Hillman give a talk on this subject back in the 90s and even though I took careful notes at the time, the amount of important and very interesting information he gave was such that I wanted very much to hear the talk again. Thanks to BetterListen! I will be able to listen to this many times. This subject or the Alchemy of Psychology is one that I have returned to many times as I have gotten older and each time I find more insights in the material. Being that I am an artist, I find James Hillman's approach of speaking to the images (he goes into vivid descriptions of the colors, forms, characters, tools etc. that you will meet in the process) a wonderful source of visual inspiration. It is also a very healing move that James Hillman makes to take Psychology beyond the medical language and bring it to the mythological creative imagination.
I had a difficult time listening to this series due to audio issues. I was not able to easily download, and when the download was successful, I was unable to listen to the entire episode (stopped halfway through). I ended up having to stream the episodes, which was not entirely without issue, but at least allowed me access to the lectures. Overall, I am disappointed, as streaming the lectures does not allow me the opportunity to listen to them again in the future.
Just following up to see that Michelle helped you with your order. Thanks, Steve
