Film viewing of Lemonade + Short Lecture, Discussion
Beyoncé's remarkable album Lemonade chronicles a woman's journey in relationship from love to betrayal and rage, then back to forgiveness and love. It is -- explicitly -- a full alchemical journey of psychological transformation within oneself, and within relationship.
The album, listened to in order or watched in the full-length video, depicts the journey to higher consciousness from the lower coniunctio to the higher coniunctio on the path of individuation. It is a journey well-known in the Jungian study of alchemy in the Rosarium Philosophorum, and in the mythical separation and reunion told in Psyche and Eros.
Lemonade is a significant contribution to the modern conversation around feminism, love, masculinity, and consciousness.
During this evening presentation, we'll watch the full film of Lemonade (1 hour), along with a short presentation on alchemy and its relevance to the album.
