with Dr Stephan Harding
Tuesday 25th January 2022 – 6:30pm – 8:00pm (UK Time) via Zoom
About 400 years ago during the scientific revolution science and soul were drastically separated, propelling humanity into centuries of a valuable yet one-sided style of empiricism and rationality which has fundamentally disconnected us from each other and from nature. In this perspective, there is no room for the soul (anima or psyche), or for the development of empathy, intuition and feeling in relation to nature. This tragic separation is at the root of the serious ecological, climatic and psychological crisis which we currently experience all over the planet.
Now, for the first time, we have access to detailed scientific knowledge of the dynamics of the Earth, while depth psychology has shed light on the functioning of the human psyche. In this talk we will explore how combining these apparent opposites – science and psyche – can help us recover our intrinsic wholeness to heal ourselves and the earth. We’ll do this by integrating the science of Gaia (Earth System Science) with alchemical ideas and images from our pre-scientific past in relation to the evolution of our planet throughout geological time.
