***To be held at the Aspen/Pine Rooms in the Penrose Library***
Imagination and Psychoidal Experience
Lecture by Jeffrey Raff
Thursday, October 11, 2018 6:30-8.30 pm
Twenty years ago, I had an experience of the Goddess Sophia, who came to my room to speak with me. I lost much of the experience as the memory faded but I gained much as well. As a result of this experience, as well as several others, I learned to distinguish the psychoid from other imaginal states. In this lecture I will share what I have learned, weaving together the discussion of my own experiences with my understanding of active imagination and the way in which it can open the door to the psychoid. Those interested in exploring their own imagination as well as those simply interested in the theory behind psychoidal experiences should find the lecture enlightening.
Jeffrey Raff studied at the C.G. Jung Institute in the early ‘70’s, graduating in 1976. He has been in private practice in Denver since that time. He is the author of four books, including Jung and the Alchemical Imagination and The Wedding of Sophia, as well as several articles. He has lectured throughout the United States on such topics as alchemy and active imagination.
