JUNGIAN ENCOUNTER WITH GODDESS’ INDIA – THE LAND OF KALI JANUARY 16 TO FEBRUARY 2nd 2019 With Guest Lecturer – Ashok Bedi M.D.
January 16, 2019 - February 2, 2019
In our Collective, we are at the cusp of an Enantodromia – a return to the Opposite from
Patriarchal culture to the Return of the Goddess. Though Carl Jung’s central contribution
was about the Feminine Psyche and the Anima function, in his inner work as depicted
in his Red Book, he was ambivalent about the feminine as embodied by Salome
– a controversial figure in the Biblical rendering. Let the land of the Goddess Kali, Durga
and the Great Mother Shakti light your path to the mystery of the Soul and the emerging
archetypes to guide the Collective Consciousness in our troubled and chaotic time. Join
us in this magical encounter with the Goddess Soul of India from Orissa to Kolkata to
the country side of Karnataka outside Bangalore.
Explore the former British capital Kolkata before it was moved to New Delhi in 1911.
Discover its colonial heritage and revolutionary rebellions, sailing on the Brahmaputra
and Hoogly rivers, visiting Durga and Kali temples where they become alive.
We stay at Rajbari Bawali, a regal heritage mansion in the Bengali countryside located
along the Ganges river banks. We will explore the Village Goddess with spiritual walks
and boat rides on the holy river.
The Golden Triangle of Bhubaneswar, Puri and Konark let’s us explore Hindu temples
and Buddhist caves, many dating back to the 7AD, including the famous Unesco Heritage
Sun Temple and the Jagannath Temple.
The journey concludes with a five day Jungian retreat with Dr. Bedi’s lectures at
Shreyas Retreat www.shreaysretreat.com focusing on Goethe’s Faust and the Faustian
Bargain with the Devil. He will explore the Eastern paradigm to deal with the Shadow in
the Archetypes of the Ten Avatars of God Vishnu – The Dasavatars. Vishnu’s ten
avatars will be amplified in a live dance performance by a well-known Bharatanatyam
dancer. This retreat can be taken separately or together with the main journey.
