Friday 4th February 2022
at MacKillop House, 50 Archibald St, Lyneham, ACT (and by Zoom)
“It is impossible to describe the beauty and intensity of emotion during those visions. They were the most tremendous things I have ever experienced” (Memories Dreams and Reflections p326). This is how Carl Jung described his experience of the Hieros Gamos, the sacred marriage. What did Carl Jung experience and what significance does his experience have for our own personal journeys?
Terry Curtin, BA (Psychology, Political Science) BTheology, MA Theology, Diploma of Transpersonal Counselling, a long time member of the Jung Society in Canberra and Melbourne will comment on the link between Jung’s experience and the Kabbalah. Reference will be made to an “out of character” mystical experience of St Thomas Aquinas which gives some insights into the nature of the hieros gamos. Terry’s spiritual journey began in 1950. From a tribal Irish catholic culture he felt called to be a priest but after 10 “monastic” years he left the seminary.
Marriage, children, and careers in the public service, private enterprise and voluntary services over 60 years followed. His encounter in 1980 with Carl Jung’s “Memories Dreams and Reflections” was transformative. He continued studies in theology, transpersonal psychology and biblical Hebrew and undertook training in the Tarot and Kabbalah.
He shares some of his journey in this presentation.
