On Saturday, June 19th, Dr. Apperson will present a workshop entitled An Unlikely Heroine. Together, we will watch Dangerous Beauty, the true story of a sixteenth century Venetian courtesan who has been tutored in the fine art of lovemaking, poetry and conversation. Ironically, it is she who is quite capable of standing on her own long enough to be valued for herself, providing a remarkable role model for those of us in search of feminine strength. In our discussion of the film, we will delve more deeply to excavate the too easily idealized, then quickly maligned, but very precious archetypal feminine. Men and women alike suffer from the severe consequences of a marginalized feminine; as such, the workshop welcomes both men and women as we spend the day exploring this important issue. Saturday’s workshop will begin at 9:00 a.m. and run until 4:00 p.m.
The admission for Friday evening’s lecture is $15 for members of the Jung Society and $25 for non-members. Saturday’s workshop is $60 for members and $80 for non-members. Those who wish can attend both the Friday lecture and the Saturday workshop for a combined price of $65 for members and $95 for non-members. The Jung Society offers discounts for students as well. There are only a limited number of spaces available, so please register early. To register, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our new Meetup group.
About Virginia Apperson: Dr. Apperson is a Jungian Analyst in private practice in Atlanta, Georgia. For most of her life she has been intrigued by the enormous potential within the archetypal domain. In her youth she knew there was more available to her, but she didn’t possess the language or the tools to articulate and explore what was there. Finally, she stumbled upon the writings of C.G. Jung and found a theoretical framework that helped her unlock the doors to the treasures of the archetypal world. After completing her training at the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, she returned to Atlanta where she began her practice as a Jungian Analyst. In addition to her analytic work, she works with couples and leads dream groups. She is the co-author of the recently published book, The Presence of the Feminine in Film.
