Hildegard Illuminations, Jung & The Red Book Friday 18th SEPT 2020 Carl Jung and Hildegard of Bingen were both powerful mystics whose connection to transpersonal forces led them to boldly embrace unconventional lives of healing and wholeness. Jung's visionary experiences in the 20th century became the basis for his celebrated Red Book from which all of his later theories on depth psychology emerged.
Synchronicity as Cultural Critique Friday 16 Oct 2020 Jung developed the concept of synchronicity as part of his critique of the cultural condition of his day, which he saw as characterised by excessive rationalism in science, loss of a sense of the sacred, and social mass-mindedness—a condition that could be aptly described in terms of Weber’s notion of disenchantment.
Towards an Ecopsychotherapy Friday 20th Nov 2020 In this talk I share some stories from the consulting room of deep love, attachment and loss in our relationships with the nonhuman world.
The Racial Complex Friday 15th Jan 2021 In The Racial Complex: A Jungian Perspective on Culture and Race, Dr Brewster revisits and examines Jung’s classical writing on the theory of complexes, relating it directly to race in modern society.
Memories, Dreams, Reflections: A Symphony Analysis of Composing a Symphony Friday 19th Feb 2021 Jung’s autobiography Memories, Dreams, Reflections is a challenging crucible in which to contextualise my love of Jung's thought, within music. I focussed on the chapter "Visions" in which Jung recounts his near-death experience from a heart attack.
The Ancestors Friday 12 Mar 2021 This talk considers the unconscious patterns which run through families and generations of families, as one generation inherits, responds and reacts to the complexes and archetypal energies of the previous generation – and even of the generation before that – parents, grandparents and beyond..

Lilith: Culture and Diversity Friday, 16th Apr 2021 ric Neumann has famously written about the "fear of the feminine"' But "fear of" is not something usually associated with the feminine, which has been and still is regarded as inferior and lacking authority in most cultures.
