Vibrations of Transcendence: Orpheus, Music and The Red Book (In Person)

October 7, 2023 @ 10:00 am

Music is everywhere, so available and ubiquitous that we rarely pause to reflect upon its mysterious power. How could a mere set of vibrational frequencies transport us back to childhood, move us to tears, and facilitate spiritual experience? In the Greek myth of Orpheus, music afforded access to the Underworld, the power to move Hades to tears, and the potential to raise the dead. Jung wrote, “Music represents the movement, development, and transformation of the motifs of the collective unconscious.” Part lecture and part experiential workshop, we will explore the myth of Orpheus through the perspectives of music therapy, physics, neuroscience, and the Jungian concepts of the collective unconscious and the transcendent function.
