The Mother: Archetype, Spiritual, Personal Goddess

Tuesday, July 13
10:00 am-12:00pm, 1:00-3:00pm

Instructor:  Julie Bondanza, PhD

In his seminal work The Great Mother, Erich Neumann demonstrates that the primordial images of the mother are deeply set in the human psyche. He gives examples from the earliest cultures: images, rituals, myths and stories. He shows how these images appear in modern psyches: in dreams, poetry, novels, religions and in everyday tributes to our mothers. Mother imagoes can be found in monsters, geological and celestial formations as well as in animals, insects and birds. Neumann recognizes how the archetype manifests in both its nurturing and terrifying forms. He describes both the elemental and transformative aspects of this archetype.

C.G. Jung in Volume 9 of The Collected Works devotes an entire essay to the mother complex. He considered the mother archetype the most significant of all, for this is the archetype of which we first become conscious. It contains all the nurturing, abandoning, terrifying and awesome aspects of the mother. It is at the heart of our most primitive complexes; in fact, it is at the heart of how we see ourselves.

In this seminar, we will explore the archetype of the mother in her many aspects and its effects on our psyches. Worship of the goddess as mother can be found throughout history and in myriad cultures . The mother archetype is at the heart of many, if not all, spiritual experiences as well as at the center of our personal psychology. We will examine this archetype though art, poetry, myth, fairy tales, dreams, fantasies and personal experience.
