In this retreat, we will explore the world of archetypes, dreams, myths, shadow, symbols, alchemy, individuation, and astrology. It will be a rich, creative journey into the depths of the psyche and the reality of the psychoid, through the work of Carl Jung and alchemy. The retreat will be highly experientially, to intricately support and illuminate our own transformational processes.
We will dive in through living mythic material and symbols that informed Jung and the ancient alchemists. We will also turn to the issues of current times that seek our attention — for transformation in this pregnant darkness — at individual and collective levels.
The focus our time together will include 1) An overview of Carl Jung’s seminal contributions to psychology 2) the power and significance of Jung’s own “spiritual emergency” rooted in and supported by his discovery of the ancient alchemists 3) and deep personal exploration into these alchemical processes using a variety of experiential modalities including Holotropic BreathworkTM, Jung’s active imagination, writing, art, dream work, film, meditation, and movement.
This retreat will be enriching for anyone wishing to explore their inner lives in a safe and nourishing setting, as well as those interested in bringing a Jungian perspective into their everyday lives. This will be a wonderful opportunity to have a personal, embodied experience of Jung’s most groundbreaking contributions. The retreat will provide the ‘alchemical vessel’ for one’s own exploration, integration, and growth.
Attendees of Monika and Diane’s Red Book module will find much new, as well as some revisited and expanded, material and practices.
Comments from participants:
“I have seen Jung’s work coming alive through Monika. It has helped me so much in doing my inner work, it has helped me giving words to my own journey”
“The lecture [by Monika] was mind blowing and incredible rich!”
“Holotropic breathwork is the most powerful method I know about self-discovery, self-healing and self-improvement. GTT modules give an extra value because there is plenty of time to go inwards and safety created by the GTT team.”
