Call and Response: Divination and Synchronicity for Navigating These Turbulent Times

Sunday, May 21st, 2017 4:30-6:30pm

with Anita Doyle, MA

*sold out*


How do we discern the nature and meaning of a particular time, in our personal lives and in our collective life, and skillfully meet it? It’s a question we humans have grappled with since the notion of Time and its accompanying anxieties first arose in consciousness. Oracular traditions were birthed not long afterward.

What is the impulse in us toward divination about? What does it serve?

In this salon-style conversation, archetypal astrologist and educator Anita Doyle will guide an exploration of these questions, evoking a strong felt-sense of the differences between surface/linear time and deep/non-linear time. We will recognize the predictable, sometimes funny, sometimes disastrous consequences of failing to grasp that surface time and deep time are inextricably linked, and the transformational creativity that can unfold in our lives when we act with the clear awareness that deep time and surface time are two sides of one coin.

Our conversation will draw particularly from Jung's notion of synchronicity, and the oracular traditions that have inspired and informed Anita for a lifetime: the I Ching, dreamwork, and astrology, along with four decades of insight meditation practice.
