The Swedish artist, Hilma af Klint (1862-1944), has transitioned from obscurity to prominence as was illustrated recently by a solo exhibition of her work. This exhibition (October 12, 2018-April 23, 2019) became the Guggenheim New York’s most popular show since the museum opened 60 years ago. In addition to the incredible visual quality of her art, af Klint impels the viewer to consider concepts and states similar to Jung’s (1875-1961)creative expressions, both through his visual works and writings. Through their prolific output, af Klint and Jung each reveal their personal encounters with an invisible “other” and explore the multi-dimensional. This presentation will review Hilma a Klint’s life experiences and creative achievement, then explore the parallels with those of Jung and Jungian psychology.

We know sound/vibration by way of chromosomal/collective, congenital/familial, and personal contact. In this workshop, we will explore the collective, familial, and personal experiences of sound via a soundscape, accompanied by a personal narration of pre-birth, in-utero, lived experience, as well as those imagined to accompany one post-death. The concept of sense memory retrieval will be explored from both a clinical as well as a poetic perspective, as a way of imagining and experiencing our connection to our world via sound. This workshop will include a written active imagination for participants to use for themselves and/or their clients as an aid to accessing embodied memories.

Dance ritual has served a pivotal role in human history, providing culture groups and their members a rich means to revivify core values and confront the uncertainties of an overwhelming and ever-changing world. In this presentation, I will share footage of traditional dances placing participants in ritual peril as a means to enlarge the psychic capacity of participants and revitalize the shared meanings and resources of their group. We will then look to modern dance works in which these same purposes may be reemerging. Specifically, we will explore the element of danger in the phenomenon of site-specific dance and movement forms which may be serving to confront collective risk-aversion with the necessity of uncertainty to true aliveness.
