In this symposium, Thomas Moore will offer a way to practice soul-based psychotherapy, an approach that has ancient roots and has been developed by C. G. Jung, James Hillman and Thomas Moore. It is primarily for psychotherapists of all kinds, but since psycho-therapy here means caring for the soul in distress, which can include physical and social symptoms, the course is also designed for anyone looking for meaning and a release from suffering. In this symposium, Thomas Moore will discuss ancient’s myths related to therapy: Artemis, Daphne, Chiron, Acteon, Hermes, Aphrodite, Asklepios. A presentation on Jung will focus on his own methods of self-therapy, including play, active imagination, personification and artistic expression. Participants will learn James Hillman’s work on images, his ideas on therapy, anima mundi (soul in the world), the polytheistic psyche, and the role of beauty. Participants will also learn how to use dreams and the arts in therapy and how to employ deep intuition and other traditional, mysterious ways of knowing. This is a spiritual, intuitive, artistic and truly depth approach to therapy that requires personal work on the part of the therapist. Therefore, the accent will be on becoming a person of soul and spirit while helping others deal with their own mysteries, challenges and initiations.
