Many of us recognize that we are living in the midst of a major transformation, a profound drama facing the Earth community with tremendous consequences at stake. The evidence of consistent correlations between planetary alignments and world events, as seen through the lens of archetypal astrology, can provide us with a much-needed context for our time.
What are the deeper stirrings in the collective psyche today? What is the current planetary situation, and which gods are now in dynamic motion? Understanding both the cyclical patterns and the historical trends that preceded our current moment can help us engage with greater consciousness and skillful intelligence the powerful forces now active in the world.
Join CIIS professor and cultural historian Richard Tarnas as he presents his latest state of the world report on the archetypal context of our national and global moment. This online event continues our recent annual tradition of offering such an archetypal overview, and this year includes a special advance screening of the opening episode of the new documentary series The Changing of the Gods.
Inspired by Richard’s work and featuring leading figures in the fields of history, psychology, spirituality, political activism, technological innovation, and consciousness research, The Changing of the Gods vividly depicts the trajectory of our time and our future prospects.
