Most of the female Biblical figures function as changers of the world, disrupters of the masculine status quo, requiring the insight and courage to defy even God. The positive dimension of the feminine in the human psyche remains for us to explore and benefit from. We will examine these ideas through Biblical accounts, including those of Eve, Lilith, Sarah, Rebecca and Mary. Instructor: Rise Kaufmann, PhD

The Experience of the Divine/ Sacred after the Death of God: C.G. Jung and the Quest for an Individuated SpiritualityPresented by C.G. Jung Foundation for Analytical Psychology
Friedrich Nietzsche's 19th century declaration of the Death of God has had a profound influence upon the psycho-spiritual life of Western culture. We will explore Jung's contribution to the quest for a spirituality brought forth from the loss of soul and the death of meaning and explore that essential Jungian question: What can the divine and sacred mean for us today?
Other Criteria, the arts-based publishing company and store founded by Damien Hirst will inaugurate a regular lecture and screening series at their New York flagship location. Author and critic Carlo McCormick will kickoff the series on October 28th with a lecture on Art & Intoxication, that will examine the parallels and intersections of “getting high” and art making. McCormick promises to “run riot through the ages” with a talk that will uncover and assess the role and impact of substance use and abuse on the creative output of cave painters, classical Greco-Roman and Egyptian practitioners, as well as established art stars ranging from Michelangelo, Velasquez, and Bosch through Steichen, Picasso, and Warhol to Chris Burden, Jeff Koons and many, many more. According to the author “Few things seem more endemic to the human condition than the creation of art and the search for intoxication.”
