May the Force Be with Us:
The Archetype of the Hieros Gamos in the Star Wars Mythology
with Jean-Francois Vezina
Sunday March 14, 2021
at 10:00 am PDT | 1:00 pm EDT | 6:00 pm CET
Jean-François Vézina will be looking at the full spectrum of archetypical dynamics in the Star Wars series. The core of the last episode of the series contains a great expression of the archetype of the Hieros Gamos that Jung and Pauil talked about in their correspondences. Facing the dark side of fear, symbolised by the Star Wars’ character Palpatine and experienced in our times with Covid-19, we need to be courageous and imaginatives in the reconciliation of our opposites, and Star Wars offers a great path to this collective and personal individuation. Jean-François will divide his presentation into four 20-minute parts leaving plenty of time for community Q&A and discussion.
- ‘May the Force be with me’. (Trilogy 1-3) Egotic dimension of the Force
- ‘May the Force be with you’ (Trilogy 4-6) Heroic dimension of the Force
- ‘May The Force be with us’ (Trilogy 7-9) Hiero Gamic dimension of the Force.
- ‘Baby Yoda, a symbol of the sacred child’
This series is free and open to everyone!
