Divine Imagination and the Evolution of Consciousness

Lecture: Friday, November 15, 2019, from 6:30 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Workshop: Saturday, November 16, 2019, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Dr. Galin McGowan will explore the role of imagination in Carl Jung’s development of Analytical psychology and in our own consciousness. Jung’s work with imagination is directly relevant to our current evolution of consciousness and our psychological health and well-being. As we collectively step into the future with technology, space exploration, artificial intelligence, and new revelations about the nature of reality, we are being challenged to adapt at a very rapid pace. During this process, suffering occurs when new paradigms do not yet hold a meaningful narrative of relationship with the Divine. In this lecture and workshop, we will explore how Jung’s work with the imagination and the theories of Teilhard de Chardin, Terence Mckenna, and others contribute to the use of imagination toward creating new collective narratives of meaning and a deepening of collective consciousness. In the Saturday workshop, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the practice of active imagination, active play, and psychodrama as methods of accessing the unconscious.

Dr. Galin McGowan, Ph.D, is a Jungian Analyst, Diploma graduate of the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, and a licensed mental health professional with additional training in marriage and family therapy. She has been an active Jungian Analyst and educator since 2002 and currently maintains a private practice in Sarasota, FL. Dr. McGowan is the vice president of the board and a frequent lecturer and workshop provider to the C. G. Jung Society of Sarasota, as well as the local community. Previously, Dr. McGowan was a senior training analyst for the Inter-regional Society of Analytical Psychology, faculty member of the C. G. Jung Society of Colorado, co-founder of the Boulder Friends of Jung, and adjunct professor at the Art Institute of Colorado. Prior to her work as an Analyst, Dr. McGowan held positions as an environmental engineer and geologist providing research and development in the energy sector.
